NESCAFE Dolce Gusto 1st Birthday Bash

I have been invited to the NESCAFE Dolce Gustro 1st Anniversary Bash @ Loola’s by Awfully Chocolate.


It is an afternoon party filled with fun and surprises.



Upon reaching the venue, I can indulge myself in a couple of interesting activities ranging from Latte Arts, taking Polaroid photos to trying out the 13 different exciting beverages of Dolce Gustro.



There is also a game booth just outside the shop whereby the goal of this game to push the capsules into the designated “ Nestle circles”.


Note that the entire capsule has to stay within the circles and if it just touches the edge, it will not be counted as a winning entry though. And the winner will get a chance to spin the wheel.


Too bad, I am not good at aiming but some of my friends do get to walk away with Dolce Gustro capsules and tumbler.

Finally the event begins with Melody Chen as the host.


Next up is the opening speech by the Managing Director of Nestlé (Singapore) Pte Ltd, Mr Valerio Nannini.


He thanks all valued customers and loyal fans for the loyal support of  NESCAFE Dolce Gusto, a system that fulfils consumers’ desire for an aspirational café lifestyle and truly redefines the experience of coffee drinking at home and at the workplace. Now comes the exciting moment….cake-cutting ceremony for Dolce Gustro to mark its 1st year anniversary.




Melody also points out that this is really a double celebration as it will be Mr Valerio Nannini birthday in a few days time. Happy Birthday! Mr Valerio Nannini.

I am even thrilled that apart from tasting the limited edition Dark Chocolate Espresso Gateau (a special Birthday cake created in an an exclusive collaboration with the homegrown cake shop – Awfully Chocolate,), I do have the chance to take photo with Mr Valerio Nannini.


By the way, this cake features Awfully Chocolate’s famous all chocolate cake sandwiched between six layers of intense dark chocolate fudge, topped with a generous layer of aromatic and smooth Espresso mousse made using NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® very own Espresso Ristretto. Yummy!
