• Nespresso Nordic Almond Cake

    Nordic Almond Cake review

    A Nordic Variations Limited Edition from 2019. Light brown foam. Sweet aroma, of a good intensity. Very much almond-like. A medium-heavy cup, with hints of cereals and meringue mixed with some bitterness. Low acidity. Closely resembling a more subtle version of the Macaron limited edition. A blend of cream, meringue and almond flavors over the Livanto base. Delicate and flavorful.

  • Nespresso Nordic Black

    Nordic Black review

    A Nordic Variations Limited Edition from 2019. Brown foam. A mix of fruits and cereals aroma. Fruity and acidic at the taste, more so at lower temperatures. A markedly dry cup. Quite low intensity, even less than the 5 Nespresso officially gives to it. Little to no bitterness. A pungent, fruity, light cup for an easy drink experience. Crema is inconsistent. To be drank as a lungo but for more punch an espresso/ristretto would be to us the sweet spot between the flavors and character.

  • Nespresso Nordic Cloudberry

    Nordic Cloudberry review

    A Nordic Variations Limited Edition from 2019. Light brown foam. Strong and pungent aroma of berries, completely overcoming the coffee aroma. At a first sip the cloudberry and acidity are prominent, with little bitterness. It barely resembles a cup of coffee at first, fruits and berries flavors cover any hint of coffee, especially at higher temperatures. A light-bodied cup. Not particularly sweet, with hints of citrus flavors instead. One of the least standard cups of coffee among the whole Nespresso line.

  • Nespresso Advent Calendar 2019

    Nespresso Advent Calendar available

    In some markets, UK, Germany and a few other europeans so far, it’s possible to buy the Advent Calendar, containing 23 capsules and one “surprise”. Surprise is probably going to be a small glass or one of the small Nespresso accessories. Priced at 29€/25£ it is on the expensive side. No news if it will be available for the US market too (in the previous years it wasn’t).

  • Nespresso Long Black Over Ice

    Long Black Over Ice review

    A 2019 Summer Limited Edition. Light brown foam. Pleasurably roasted smell, pronounced. Medium-strong body, with a thick and persistent crema. An acidic cup, just a bit bitter. Hints of chocolate can be discerned but not above the citric, fruity ones. A fresh, velvety cup overall, with the acidity very noticeable throughout the tasting. To be tasted cold as Nespresso suggests, which makes the acidity and fruity notes overcoming the other flavors and hints.

  • Nespresso Flat White Over Ice

    Flat White Over Ice review

    A 2019 Summer Limited Edition. Light brown foam. Sweet and aromatic aroma, resembling malt and spices. Slightly on the bitter side but not too much as to be classified as a bitter capsule. Quite acidic and spicy, punching through the milk and enabling to taste it regardless of the amount of milk added. A thin bodied cup, with a strong leaning towards spicy and malty flavors. Probably not possible to drink it as black coffee as the taste would be quite unlikable.
