• Festive Black Espresso

    Festive Black Espresso Review

    A 2023 festive limited edition pod. Brown foam. Aroma full of spices, a bit sweet, with noticeable woody notes. Roasting notes are also present but not prominent. A pod with a good body, dry and bitter at the taste. Acidity is present but the, relatively high, sweetness overcomes it. It is not as sweet as some flavored coffee from Nespresso, but it is a on the high side of sweetness among unflavored ones. With medium-high intensity, mainly bitter but possessing a good warmth in its taste profile that makes it easy to drink, less harsh. Good, long lasting crema. A very woody pod overall. The notes of spices enrich it,…

  • Frosted Caramel Nuts

    Frosted Caramel Nuts Review

    A 2023 festive limited editions, caramel flavored, pod. Brown crema, very dense and foamy. The aroma is sweet, full of caramel, vanilla, and almonds notes. There is not much coffee proper to smell, but overall the aroma is very warm and pleasant. A pod with medium body, not much intensity. There is some bitterness, at the beginning of a sip and in the aftertaste mainly, but a vivacious acidity is more prominent. It is highlighted by the sweetness of the caramel flavoring. The acidity lingers for a long time on the palate, leaving a taste of this pod on it for quite a while after finishing drinking it. Crema is…

  • Seasonal Spices Delight

    Seasonal Delight Spices Review

    A 2023 festive limited edition pod. A flavoured coffee, inspired by Christmas’ spices cake. Light brown foam. Intense aroma of cinnamon and cardamom, accompanied by a vaguer one of fruits. It has hardly any typical coffee smell features, being more resembling of a hot beverage with lots of spices in it, not necessarily containing coffee. Of medium-heavy body, it is quite dry at first sip. The mouthful is oily, quite in contrast with the initial aroma. Slightly bitter but with good acidity, it does not show the smelled sweetness at the taste. It is rather predominantly acidic, with little in terms of both bitterness and sweetness. Not very intense overall,…

  • Cafecito de Cuba returns

    In a few markets only so far (Canada, Uk, and a couple other EU countries), but probably going to be available in others soon. It is the same capsule that cyclically makes a return, and one of the most expensive ones. We are nonetheless glad that the original line is getting some love from Nespresso in this 2023.

  • Nespresso 2023 Festive Limited Editions

    Nespresso seasonal flavors 2023 revealed

    Most of us have been waiting for news about this year’s Nespresso holiday flavors and we have a sneak peek now. Unlike the recent years, there will not be a fruity flavor this Christmas but otherwise the line-up of the three new limited editions looks similar to the past years. Festive Black Espresso should be the classic black coffee experience. If the recent years are to be followed, it will probably be a medium intensity coffee, with a straightforward taste profile. Frosted Caramel Nuts is a caramel pecan flavored coffee. Thus, fairly sweet and nutty. Seasonal Delight Spices is clearly spices-rich, with cinnamon, cloves and “spice cake” named as the…

  • Nespresso launches Number 20 coffee pods

    Named by Nespresso “probably the most precious coffee in the world”, it is a celebrative pod that is being launched in a few markets so far. Australia and New Zealand, but we also saw smaller European markets like Slovakia. It will probably become available in many markets soon. This Number 20 pod is a coffee from Colombia that was carefully selected at Nespresso to offer an unique experience. Fully Arabica, with orange blossom and citrus named in the taste profile, Number 20 should be an interesting coffee pod. We have not tried it yet so we can’t confirm the quality of this pod, but it is refreshing to see that…

  • Pumpkin Spice Cake is available already

    Punctual as every year at the end of the summer, Pumpkin Spice Cake is making is re-appearance in a few markets, Canada and US included. Both for Original and Vertuo lines. Initially there was a 40 sleeves order limit but it was removed shortly after and now orders are without limits. We are sure that Pumpkin Spice Cake will soon be available in many other markets, as usual for this beloved Nespresso pod.
