We present multi-epoch optical and near-infrared observations of the highly reddened, Fe ii class slow nova V2891 Cygni. The observations span 15 months since its discovery. The initial rapid brightening from quiescence, and the presence of a ∼35 day long pre-maximum halt, is well documented. The evidence that the current outburst of V2891 Cyg has undergone several distinct episodes of mass ejection is seen through time-varying P Cygni profiles of the O i 7773 Å line. A highlight is the occurrence of a dust formation event centred around ∼+273d, which coincides with a phase of coronal line emission. The dust mass is found to be ∼ 0.83 − 1.25 × 10−10
