• 2020 Festive limited edition sneak peek? Amaretti and Il Caffè

    On the Hong Kong Nespresso’s website have made an appearance these two new pods: Amaretti and Il Caffè. They’re not easily found as they’re not listed along the other pods but are nonetheless present. Both are heavily Italian-inspired, with the Amaretti being a flavoured capsule and Il Caffé using Robusta from Vietnam, a common origin for Italian espresso blends. No confirmation on whether these will be the festive limited edition of this year or not, nor when they’ll be available in all Nespresso markets. [UPDATE]: there’s a third one, Torta di Nocciole, for which we haven’t found much info at all but should be an hazelnut-flavoured capsule. The whole 3…

  • Nespresso Aged Sumatra

    Aged Sumatra review

    Origin: Arabica from the Aceh province on Sumatra, Indonesia, aged for 3 years. Intensity: 7 Bitterness: 5 Acidity: 3 Body: 5 Roasting: 4 Order: Buy Aged Sumatra at Nespresso A limited edition among the Master Origins line. Light brown foam. An intensely roasted aroma, with a somewhat tobacco, even peaty, tinge. Prevalently bitter at first, with a very subtle acidity, not bright nor tangy. Thick crema but not long lasting. Whisky-like undertones, similar to drinking a coffee “corretto” with a splash of a low-grade alcoholic drink. Woody, spicy and especially tobacco flavors, with a delicate, moderately sweet, acidity make the bulk of the aromatic profile of this capsule. Acidity comes…

  • Pumpkin Spice Cake available in the US

    Unfortunately, it’s for now only for the Vertuo line. Most have been asking when the pumpkin spice limited edition would return and it appears it finally did, way before Fall, but not for the Original line. Unfortunately Nespresso decided to skip the Original line with this limited edition.

  • Limited edition Master Origin Aged Sumatra available in EU

    A new Master Origin from the Aceh region of Sumatra, Indonesia, has become available on most EU markets. It is an aged coffee, where the beans have been stored for 3 years, and that affects its taste in unusual ways. Not many coffee vendors offer aged beans. This Aged Sumatra should be a quite spicy and tobacco-like coffee capsule. No news if it will become available outside of EU. Often Nespresso tries a new limited edition in a few markets and, if successful, relaunch it worldwide later.

  • Nespresso Freddo Intenso

    Freddo Intenso review

    Origin: a blend of Peruvian Arabica and Indonesian Java coffee Order: Buy Freddo Intenso at Amazon Light brown foam. Malty aroma, with a noticeable roastiness highlighting it. A dark roast with prominent bitterness throughout the tasting experience. Dark cocoa and malted cereals are the most prominent notes, with a persistent aftertaste of both. An heavy cup, that works quite well as a french-italian espresso substitute. Woody notes start to be noticeable at lower temperatures. As a cold coffee, the roastiness is more pleasant, with less of the bitter aspects of it. A persistent aftertaste, half acidic and roasty. Malted cereals are more prominent as a cold drink than dark cocoa.…

  • Nespresso Freddo Delicato

    Freddo Delicato review

    Origin: Arabica coffee from Kenya and Indonesia Java coffee Order: Buy Freddo Delicato at Amazon Dark brown foam. Strong aroma, sweet and a bit chocolate-y. From the smell it may appear as a dark roast but it’s light at the taste instead. Bitterness and a good mouthful are the first things to be noticed. A bright acidity is present in the aftertaste and when drank cold or not very hot. Cherries, peaches and citrus notes make up the acidity part of this blend. A vague saltiness is also present. Hints of chocolate, weak crema. As an iced coffee is wildly acidic, with a thinner body, possessing weak bitterness with roasted…
