• Nicaragua Las Marias soon available in US

    Another return from 2018, Nicaragua Las Marias was a limited edition that year and will be this year too. From 24/03 it should be available within the US market. More information can be read on the old Nespresso’s page about it. This will then be the second limited edition capsule that makes a comeback from 2018 this year. Recently the Special Reserve Galapagos was launched as well, a re-issuing of the 2018 Galapagos Santa Cruz. Whether it is not certain that Nicaragua Las Marias will have the same exact taste profile of the 2018 edition, considering that Galapagos’ blend is identical, it is highly probable it will be the same…

    Special Reserve Galapagos review

    Origin: fully Arabica coffee from the Galapagos islands Intensity: 7 A 2021 limited edition made of coffee exclusively from the Galapagos islands. It is a return of the 2018 Galapagos Santa Cruz limited edition. Light brown foam. Cereals and milk smell, quite sweet and with a medium intensity. Same intensity as the coffee itself. Dry and pungently roasted, with a medium/full body too, making it a very classic espresso taste profile. Nespresso roasted medium/dark to make it more similar to an european espresso experience. Mostly dry at the palate, with a distinct bitterness, not overwhelmingly so, though, but a pleasant, showing herbal-like qualities, kind of bitterness. Acidity slowly becomes more…

  • Special Reserve Galapagos available in some EU markets

    Even before Canada, as previously announced, the pricey and rare coffee from the Galapagos islands is available in a good part of European markets since today. No info whether it will be purchasable in all markets, at least within EU, nor when. As usual with Nespresso, unfortunately.

Peru Organic was already available last year in a few markets, so it’s another return.

  • Nespresso Limited Editions

    All Nespresso Limited Editions pods ever

    Ever is a bold claim, but it is close to a full list of all Nespresso Limited Editions that were released since the beginning. Across their nearly 3 decades’ old history, Nespresso has not only released tens of capsules for both their Original and Vertuo lines, but dozens of Limited Edition pods. These pods weren’t present at the initial release of the Nespresso single serve machines, but were born only in 1994. The very first was a selected pod called “Special Club” that every year had a different type of coffee inside. That was 8 years since the introduction of the first Nespresso machine on the market, in 1986. Since…

  • Jamaica Blue Mountain Special Reserve coming on 1st February

  • Special Reserve Jamaica Blue Mountain coming next year?

    It’s been rumored that a special edition of the famous Jamaica Blue Mountain origin will be released next year. January or early February, at most. It was originally thought to launch last November but was delayed. It is just a rumor so far, and it is totally unknown if it will be released worldwide (probably not) or only in some markets. Also unclear whether it will be released for the Vertuo line as well as for the Original.
