Food & Wine | The Nespresso Prodigio is changing the way we love coffee

By now it’s no shock that I am the biggest coffee fan – and with good reason. Being on the run around the world requires me to stay caffeinated in order to keep up! I am very excited to announce that our friends at Nespresso have asked me to be a member of the exclusive “Coffee Connoisseur Club” in Canada. What that means is that over the next six month among a small group of people, I’ll be sharing the latest and greatest from Nespresso with you all before anyone else. From new machines to innovative technology, this year is all about falling in love with coffee in a whole new way that suits your busy life. 

At the beginning of the month, Nespresso launched their latest innovative machine – Nespresso Prodigio. This bluetooth connected device is more compact, connected and creative to suit the needs of Canadians from coast to coast. 


Let’s take a look at this new device that we’ve added to our lives to showcase just a few of the reasons why I’m pretty much obsessed. 

The addition of a connected device that allows me to monitor my water level, how many capsules I have and the machine’s status help to create yet another connected part of my day to day life. I have actually started the machine while laying in bed not wanting to wake up. The Nespresso App (click here for Google Play and here for iTunes to download it for free). We live in our world where our phones are like another part of our bodies, so it just made sense to create a coffee experience that could be created with the push of a button.

With so many reasons to add the Prodigio to your life, here are just a few that help to compliment my life:

  • Machine Weight : 2.95 Kilogram
  • Used capsule container capacity : 19
  • Descaling alert
  • Machine dimensions (WxDxH) : 11.95 x 37.4 x 25.5
  • Folding drip tray for Latte Macchiato glass
  • Empty water tank detection
  • Automatic ejection of used capsule
  • Fast heat-up

Small enough for condo counter space – the worst BTW – but with big enough power to keep your whole family fueled up, the Prodigio is my new favourite kitchen appliance. To get yours today, head to the Nespresso website or your nearest Nespresso Boutique today

Stay tuned over the next six months as we tell you about our favourite new Nespresso appliances, coffees and locations for all things coffee related. We can’t wait to be able to share some exciting things in the works and to show you all the reasons why Nespresso is our coffee brand of choice!
