Furthermore, in 2010 Nespresso launched the first edition of the Nespresso Cup, a unique sailing event, gathering exclusively the Wally class. The second edition of the Nespresso Cup will be taking place in May 2011 in Portofino, Italy.

Nespresso is well-known in sailing circles, a long-time supporter of the sport. Emirates Team New Zealand values its association with premium international brands like Nespresso, where continuous innovation and commitment to success are a core part of the culture.'

The sponsorship of Emirates Team New Zealand marks a move by the coffee manufacturer to expand further into into new global markets. The company intends to build on the success of Australia as one its fastest growing markets, Nespresso will be extending its presence in this dynamic region in 2011.

To meet increasing demand of coffee lovers in New Zealand, Nespresso will be establishing its market presence this year, with a boutique opening in Auckland planned for September 2011.
