• Lack of updates on the Original line

    You have probably noticed our lack of updates on new or returning Nespresso pods. That was not our choice but a consequence of Nespresso’s decision. It is clear how in 2023 the focus of the company was in releasing new pods for the Vertuo line mostly, and leaving only returning pods to the Original line. The Vertuo got some interesting flavors like Whisky Essence, Vanilla, Chocolate, Golden Caramel, Juicy Watermelon Flavor Over Ice plus a plethora of returning pods like Honduras, Hawaii Kona, Jamaica Blue Mountain etc. On the other side, the Original Line has seen a refresh of the Barista Creations line with new Caramello, Cioccolatino, Nocciola, and Vaniglia;…

  • Hawaii Kona and Jamaica Blue Mountain returning in 2023

  • Hawaii Kona is available again (US only)

    For those who missed this famed origin, Hawaii Kona can be bought on the Nespresso US website again. As last year, it will be probably be available for a few months and not anywhere else. So if you happen to be in the US, you can take this chance to stock it up.

  • Hayman Hawaii Kona

    Hayman Hawaii Kona review

    One of the rarest and most famous coffee in the world, Hawaii Kona grows on the slopes of the volcanoes Halalai and Mauna Loa, from the Kona district, Big Island, Hawaii. Light brown foam. Complex and sweet aroma. Medium body, with a velvety feel in mouth. A very smooth cup, easy to drink. Overall on the dry side of the coffee spectrum, not at all bitter. Good levels of pleasant acidity, bright. Hayman Hawaii Kona ends with a very clean finish, leaving little to no aftertastes.
