Where We Are Going Today: Hot Sip

I enjoy everything Nespresso has to offer, from their coffee machines to their wide variety of aromatic and flavorful capsules.
I own a Lattissima Pro coffee machine from Nespresso at home, and coffee making has never been more simple and enjoyable.
It feels as if I have my own cafe at home, I can offer my guests any type of coffee they like without any limitations: Espressos, lungos — short, black and with lots of water, in case you’re wondering — cappuccinos and lattes, all with a simple touch of a button. They offer a huge variety of coffee capsules with unique flavors and different intensity levels such as Arpeggio, Livanto, Capriccio, Cosi, Dulsao do Brasil, Rosabaya de Colombia, Indriya from India, Fortissio Lungo, Vivalto Lungo, Ciocattino, Caramelito, Vanilio. Decaffeinated options are also available.
The Nespresso shop can be found on Prince Mohammed Bin Abdul Aziz Street in Jeddah’s Al-Andalus district, on Prince Saud Al-Faisal street in Al-Rawdah district and in the Red Sea Mall.
