Hello, it's Ronn.

This one's for the coffee aficionados! Whether you're thinking of having some yourself or getting a gift for loves ones, Nespresso's annual Festive collection is always exciting to check out. This 2021, the brand is launching the Gifts of the Forest collection in collaboration with Colombian fashion designer, Johanna Ortiz.

This year's collection takes inspiration from the beauty and depth of Nature’s forests while also showcasing Nespresso's commitment to the sacred environment that coffee is cultivated in — a philosophy that's also shared by the fashion designer in terms of nature and sustainability.

As part of the Gifts of the Forest collection, you'll find a range of limited-edition coffees (the Forest Variations range) as well as festive-infused accessories. The new range of coffee comprises of two flavoured coffees and one black coffee. First on the list is Forest Black — a spicy espresso blend of shade-grown coffees from Colombia and beyond.

In addition to coffee, there's also Nespresso’s latest Nomad travel mug (RM149) — designed by Johanna Ortiz. Made to resemble the rich ripe berries in the forest, the travel mug comes in a Deep Cherry shade. Looking for a touch of sparkle? Consider the Touch Golden Travel Mug (RM149). Other items in the 2021 collection include the Notebook and Nespresso x Johanna Ortiz Limited Edition Tote Bag. However, these goodies will only be attainable as gifts with purchase only.

Nespresso's 2021 Christmas collection is a gift back to the forest through the brand's partnership with Conservation International. How? The brand recently announced that it will be contributing to protect 10 million trees in the Amazon Forest in La Pedrera, Colombia — also working together with La Pedrera’s Madroño community.
