Nespresso Unveils Four New Grand Crus Nespresso Capsules
Yes - we said four and there are six pictured. Three are from
the pure origin, and the other three are the entire lungo line.
Nespresso has announced three new Pure Origin Nespresso capsules, and one new Fortissio Lungo. These new coffee capsules from Nespresso will offer Nespresso owners more variety, and will extend the current line of Nespresso Grand Crus instead of just being a seasonal offering.
The Pure Origin Nespresso capsules are from 3 unique countries:
- Rosabaya de Colombia - full body with a delicate acidity
- Dulsao do Brasil - bright and sunny
- Indriya from India - peppery with hints of spices like nutmeg and others
The Fortissio Lungo which extends the lungo line is a more intense lungo coffee created from Central and South American Arabicas.
It's really nice to see after many years Nespresso extend their line of Nespresso offerings, and to add the Pure Origin coffees. We've tried each one, and they are indeed different and help push the boundaries of what Nespresso has been offering.

I have to agree with the previous poster - coffee's from Indonesia offer very complex bouquets and aromas (not to mention taste!) these are exquisite blends that can be achieved and it would be wonderful to see Nespresso come out with a line of 'extra - special' coffee's (Jamaican blue mountain or similar blend, Indonesia, Kenya) I would definitely pay a higher price for these. I absolutely enjoy having a variety of coffee's to choose from and being a new Nespresso owner enjoy following the evolution of this wonderful product! Keep up the great work Nespresso!
Finally! Nespresso is moving in the right direction. That's not to say that these new coffees have hit the mark. But, they are each very different and two of them are much better than their earlier counterparts from Nespresso.
The Fortissio is a much fuller bodied lungo than their earlier offerings. Though possible, it would be hard to beat that one, for a lungo.
The Indriya has also made great strides, over its earlier counterparts, in that it is more complex. But, it still leaves something to be desired.
Both my wife and I have been hoping that Nespresso will finally introduce a permanent coffee from Indonesia, such as a Celebes Kalosi, which is a very complex and bold coffee, that is low on acid. Sumatra is another good coffee from that region. Granted, those coffees are a good deal more expensive, but since Nespresso is pricing the Indriya at a higher price, I don't see why they don't go for an Indonesian coffee, as well. We would gladly pay a few cents more than even the $0.62 that Nespresso charges for the Indriya, in order to get that really great cup of coffee from our Nespresso machine.
Indriya is a very fine coffee and in fact, I can say that it is the best coffee that I have tasted from any single-serve machine. Even so, for a really complex, full-bodied coffee, it still leaves something to be desired.
