George Clooney loves his Nespresso and Australians love their home-made coffee; Canstar Blue’s recent research of 865 Australian adults found that the majority (53%) prefer the coffee they make using their espresso machine to those they buy from a café.
A brief history of the company
Nespresso began in the 1980s, with the idea of a Nestle employee from Switzerland. He though that anyone should be able to create the perfect cup of coffee at home. Eric Favre sat on this idea until 1996, when he first filed the patent application for Nespresso’s capsule brewing process.
He invented, patented, and introduced the Nespresso system to the Swiss business market to little success, but with some help, made his product a big hit.
They have certainly revolutionized the way we do coffee at home, as their capsule idea has caught on internationally. Innovation and trend setting have certainly been their strong point since the company’s inception
Other coffee machine brands we rated
Canstar Blue commissions Colmar Brunton to regularly survey Australian consumers across a range of categories to measure and track customer satisfaction. The outcomes reported are the results from customers within the survey group who had purchased and used an espresso machine within the last three years – in this case, 865 Australians.
The other coffee machine brands in this year’s survey are:
