A Coffee Machine Designed for the Workplace of the Future

Nespresso Professional has announced the launch of the Nespresso Momento Coffee & Milk machine to complement the Nespresso Momento range. The Nespresso Momento Coffee & Milk delivers a range of delicious New Zealand style milk-based coffees from lattes, cappuccinos and flat whites – at a simple touch of a button. Inspired by the evolution of new workplaces, the machine has been designed to create high quality coffee experiences that bring employees together, improve productivity and create added business value.

“Over the last year, we’ve seen a huge shift in the typical New Zealand workplace, with flexible working becoming the norm, and teams embracing working from a mix of home and office. As a result, face-to-face interaction is even more valuable – and we see coffee as an integral part of in-person working relationships. We designed the Nespresso Momento range to create the perfect cup of coffee to be at the heart of these exchanges and enhance the meaningful employee relationships that create business value,” said Stefan Vermeulen, General Manager, Nespresso New Zealand.


Equipped with cutting-edge technology reflective of the increasingly connected world we live in, the Nespresso Momento system is the most intuitive in the Nespresso Professional range to date. Given people’s ever-expanding coffee preferences, the machine reads the coffee capsule and recommends the optimal beverage extraction for the selected coffee.  At the same time, the interactive screen provides information of the aromatic coffee notes and intensity for all 17 coffees in the Nespresso Professional range. The new Nespresso Momento Coffee & Milk machine can prepare 12 different milk recipes, including popular Kiwi coffee styles like cappuccinos, lattes and flat whites* – at the touch of a button. Alternatively, a scan of a QR code enables a mobile phone to be used as a remote-control to select employees’ favourite barista-quality milk-based coffee touch-free.

*The machine’s settings will also allow a choice between six black and white coffee recipes at a touch of a button to be chosen from the full catalogue.


Nespresso believes in building strong and resilient coffee-farming communities through its AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program and is committed to making a positive impact with every cup of coffee, starting with the sourcing of beans. More than 110,000 coffee farmers in 14 countries participate in the programme, ensuring coffee production is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable and more than 90% of the coffee Nespresso buys comes through the program. Nespresso is working to bring more farmers on board in more countries around the world, with the aim of sourcing 100% of coffees sustainably and making all operations carbon neutral by 2022.

Machines also play an important role in this commitment and the Nespresso Momento range has been built with sustainability at its core. With long lasting components and easily repairable or changeable elements, recyclable packaging and settings to preserve both water and energy, all steps have been taken to minimise the system’s environmental impact. Employees can therefore enjoy a delicious cup of coffee with the knowledge that it has been crafted with Nespresso’s Positive Cup principles in mind.

As with Nespresso’s full coffee range, Nespresso Momento capsules are made using infinitely recyclable aluminium, and can be recycled at over 1,000 collection points throughout New Zealand: including Nespresso Boutiques, NZ Post shops, and selected florists. Once recycled, capsules are given a second life as useful items, with the coffee grounds going to orchards to be used in compost.

The Nespresso Momento system brings people together to enjoy a cup of coffee, enhancing human interactions in the office and forging more meaningful relationships, making it an ideal coffee solution for today’s workplaces.


Nespresso understands that all businesses have different coffee needs, which is why the Nespresso Momento range was designed to perfectly answer each of them. It boasts a modern, sleek design with simplicity at its core making it a timeless addition to any office.

The different elements can be arranged depending on the available space to best fit a coffee corner, coffee area or even smaller kitchen settings – with or without a direct water connection.

The Nespresso Momento system has also been designed to include the quietest machine in the range, enabling businesses to also place it in smaller meeting or conference rooms or in open spaces. The design also considered the maintenance of the machine: with its high autonomy and intuitive interface, operators will be able to save time.

This design was recognised during one of the world’s most celebrated and valued design competition, as Nespresso Momento won the iF Design Award 2019.
