There’s nothing quite like a damn fine coffee to kick off the day on a high, and we’ve made no secret of the fact that here at The Urban List we’re just a wee bit addicted to caffeinated goodness with our list of places to find Auckland’s best coffee, coffee cocktails and we can even let you know what your coffee order says about you. But while we love to drink coffee at the top spots in Auckland, there’s times when we have to make our own.
We were super excited to have Nespresso hit our shores, and this week it opened its fifth flagship store in the heart of Auckland CBD, which certainly piqued our interest.
The boutique covers all you’d expect, including a tasting bar, a wall of gleaming machines and a recycling station, as well as an impulse table covered in little bow-wrapped coffee accessories you never knew you needed.
Artwork using 1,960 Nespresso capsules takes pride of place at the front of the store and was created by local artist Anna Leyland. It’s huge and well worth a look.
The location on the corner of Customs and Queen Street (where Tarocash used to be) is ideal and with 23 different coffees to choose from, if you can’t find us, you know where to start looking.
