Nespresso, the coffee company born from Nestle in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1986, and dedicated to turning anyone, anywhere, into a skilled barista, has opened in San Francisco at 90 Grant Street, near Union Square. The 7,400 square foot, three-story space at the corner of Grant and Geary, was designed with the new global coffee culture, technology, and local sustainability in mind. Drop in at the cafe and taste for yourself, no doubt you will be inspired to join its exclusive coffee club, and take home a U.
As a dedicated Pete’s coffee drinker, I confess I was doubtful about Nespresso before trying my first cup from the U. Ten seconds later, all doubt was erased and a new addiction formed. Never before had such a delicious and perfect cup of cappucino come from my own kitchen, and in a matter of seconds. The hardest part is trying not to have second and third cups, every day.
