A festive limited edition pod from 2022, born out of the collaboration between Nespresso and Pierre Hermé. Dark brown foam. Raspberry aroma, as imaginable, is clearly dominant. Quite sweet, and nicely acidic too. At the taste this pod is lightly acidic rather than sweet. Medium body, thin aftertaste. A pervasive bitterness underlines the tasting experience, from start to finish. The raspberry flavoring is moderate, an elegant addition more than overwhelming. With added sugar, Infiniment Fruité tastes closer to the fruit itself. Good crema, medium-lasting. It is a pod that does not change much at the varying of the temperature. It maintains a similar taste profile throughout the drinking experience. Delicately…
Nothing confirmed by Nespresso themselves but 3 new limited editions are expected to be this year’s festive pods. An hazelnut-flavored and raspberry-flavored pods, and a generic “black” coffee, probably unflavored. The black one may be in the furrow of Forest Black, being a new blend with a taste profile matching the festive theme, but no added flavorings. No news on when these will be on the shelves but it is rumored to be earlier than in other years, maybe even around mid October. It is also rumored that Peppermint limited edition will come back for this Christmas, in both the Original and Vertuo lines.
