We just found out about Zebra Coffee - they make crfat coffee Nespresso compatible capsules (thanks to JRav from our Forums - you can read their review here).

Gourmesso Bolivia Pura Mezzo Nespresso Compatible Coffee Capsules Review

Gourmesso box shot

Gourmesso is a fairly recent player to the Nespresso compatible coffee capsule market. Gourmet recently sent us a wide range of their Nespresso compatible Lungo and Espresso capsules. Most of their coffees are Fair Trade, and we decided to start with the Bolivia Pure Mezzo Gourmesso capsules. Each of their capsules come packed in boxes with 10 capsules with 2 capsules to each pouch. The pouches are not resealable, but we didn’t seem to have a problem pulling a few shots of each and not letting the coffee get stale.

  • Compatible with all OriginalLine Nespresso®* machines
  • Production of high quality coffee beans
  • A Nespresso alternative available in 20 different varieties

Nespresso Variations 2014 Thoughts and Impressions

Nespresso variations 2014 2

We had high hopes and dreams for the Nespresso Variations 2014 flavors. It seems like most things that come to pass the 2014 Nespresso variations are a bit of a mixed bag. Have you tried them? What do you think of them?

From SH:

  • Apple Crumble = Meh... doesn't smell like apple, barely tastes like apple. Major disappointment. Why is it the unlikeliest of flavors are always the ones that fail to deliver? Barely smells or tastes anything apple.
  • Chocolate Mint = As expected, best of the bunch. It has a choco-mint aroma and choco-mint taste. This is the one of the bunch that MOST matches its description. Not sure why, but Nespresso seem to excel at making chocolate-flavored coffees.  
  • Hazelnut Cookie = I only ordered 1 sleeve, just to see what it'd be like. Surprise, surprise, it's identical to the past 3 or 4 hazelnut flavored Variations releases over the past several years. Same old chemical hazelnut flavor. 

So there ya have it... I didn't try any of these with cream yet, so who knows if that'll help, but I'm again left disappointed.

Special Reserve Nespresso Maragogype Grand Cru 2014


Nespresso is at it again with a Special Reserve Maragogype Grand Cru for 2014. Following the success of Hawaii Kona Special Reserve 2012, Nespresso coffee experts have created a Special Reserve Maragogype Grand Cru 2014, composed of extremely rare and immensely precious coffee variety with uncommonly large coffee beans from Central and South America.

‘With Maragogype we have proudly outdone ourselves again,’ said Karsten Ranitzsch, Head of Coffee Nestlé Nespresso SA. ‘Thanks to our longstanding relationships with coffee smallholders, we could source the best Maragogype beans from four distinct origins. We have carefully blended and roasted them to highlight the specificities of their terroir. Due to the scarcity of these precious beans we can only produce a very limited amount, but it is our a privilege to offer this unique sensory experience to connoisseur Club Members who enjoy trying new and rare varieties.’

The Maragogype derives its name from a town in Brazil of the same name where the plant was first discovered in the late 19th century. The unusually large coffee plant, often twice the size of regular coffee plants, has the largest known coffee beans in the world.

Mixpresso - Nespresso Compatible Coffee Capsules and Machines

LUCE Angeled

If you’re looking for a Nespresso capsule alternative you may want to check out Mixpresso. Made in Italy, Mixpresso offers 4 different espresso capsule options and they also have their own single serve espresso machines:

  • Ricco, made from 100% full drums Robusta. A powerful & contrasting rich flavor that's a perfectly smooth experience on the tongue. A cup of this full-bodied roaster is simply perfect to suit the expectations of true lovers of quality traditional Italian Espresso. 
  • Luce- best defined as an angelic light and easy speciality decaf. It's our classic lively yet gentle flavor on the menu. Luce offers a snappy crisp and citrus body from the Central American coffee bean matched with a complete depth and sweetness of an Ethiopian classic.
  • Classe is Mixpresso's Superior Blend. A Perfect harmony of aromatic coffee from the Arabica species, similar to that of the Lungo but blended with an excellent natural, rustic coffee from the Robusta species. A creamy, full bodied and easy to work coffee blend with a complex yet persistent taste.
  • Lungo, is the line for coffee purists, obtained by five selected components of 100% Arabica species of coffee from Central & South America  and East Africa. Its intense toasted aroma is accompanied by a combination of slightly fruity flavors in which you can percieve gentle notes of Myrtle. 
Mixpresso machines

They have 3 different machines with the main difference being color. There’s Logan, Isabelle, and Steve. We’re pretty sure these machines are Nespresso capsule compatible as well.
