We love our Nespresso C90 and look forward to the different Nespresso club exclusive coffee blends that come only twice a year. Well - the Nespresso Variations are something completely different. It's really a first for Nespresso - flavored coffees. Now flavored coffees aren't new, but they are for Nespresso.
The new Nespresso Variations come in the following flavors:
Absolute Vanilla Smoothness
Fruity, Spicy Apple and Cinnamon Fusion
Cool Aniseed Sensation
These flavors won't be out until Mid-November, and will only be available through the Nespresso Store online or in select Nespresso boutiques. Pricing will be $.55 a capsule or $5.50 per 10 capsule sleeve.
Best of all? We just received an entire set to review. We'll have a full review soon and can't wait to try the Cool Aniseed - as licorice is our favorite flavor. Pernod anyone?
Twice a year Nespresso offers two different limited edition coffee's for your Nespresso single serve coffee system. The new Ensibuko coffee is from Uganda and combines Arabica and Robusta coffees. The combination produces a very dark cup of single serve coffee or espresso. You'll want to visit the Ensibuko web site for the full story, and with all Nespresso coffee capsule exclusives, it's quite multimedia show.
Looks like Nespresso is getting a little too big for just a few coffee plants and needs more space for all those Nespresso capsules. We're a pretty big fan of the Nespresso system and growth means the system is here to stay. Perhaps this will mean even more exclusive coffee capsules for your Nespresso system in the future.
Sales of Nespresso, which is made from hermetically sealed aluminium capsules containing ground coffee, have risen more than 30 per cent annually for the last five years. Nestlé praised the division for driving the company's 7.8 per cent increase in beverage sales during the first half of 2006. The decision to build a new production and distribution centre displays the firm's confidence in continued market growth. Nespresso, dubbed coffee's answer to teabags, has latched on to the coffee culture already present in several European countries and growing rapidly in others, especially the UK.
We're always on the look out for something to make our single serve coffee experience even better. Last year we ran several articles on products you could get that would bring milk frothing to your single serve coffee and now we're excited to tell you about the new Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother from Nespresso.
The Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother is a new, automatic and simple way of creating light, creamy milk froth. You just pour in some cold or hot, fresh skim milk and press the button. The Aeroccino quietly and quickly produces an milk froth, which you can enjoy in many different coffee recipes including lattes and cappuccinos.
It's definitely got that Porsche curve and style! We've really enjoyed our Nespresso C90 for a perfect cup of single serve coffee lungo sized, and think we'd like this Porsche designed model as well.
The new Porsche designe Nespresso includes a frother and a clock unlike our lower priced C90 along with a slew of other features. We think the stainless steel exterior is nothing short of stunning.
What would be really amazing? How about getting one of these in the car and perhaps making my car run on excellent coffee and not just fossil fuels. We're not sure it's available in the US but is availalble in Switzerland for 1529 Fr.

We've been enjoying making perfect cups of single serve coffee with our C90 Nespresso single serve coffee maker (read our review here) and we think this demo does a good job of showing you how it's done. The C190 has a few more features than the C90 but we think the different machines all do a really good job.
We've always been found of gizmos and gadgets that come in cube form, but rarely have we found them in the form of a single serve coffee maker. Most of the time you find a cube in the form of some avant-garde computer like the Apple Power Macintosh Cube, the new Apple Mac mini, or perhaps something from Shuttle PC. We're very pleased to find that Nespresso will be releasing a cube shaped single serve coffee and espresso maker in the form of Le Cube.
Love it or hate it - we have to say we love the cube shape. After reviewing both the C90 and Nespresso Romeo (both great designs) we think the Le Cube design is killer. Originally, when creation of the machine began, the Nespresso Le Cube was targeted to become a machine range for people who favored classic machines and design, and wanted the latest technology. A pure and minimalist design with a very strong direction was the basis for what began to take shape in the form of a cube.
The architectural shape was also a result of the decision to place cup-warming plates on each side of the brewing unit, providing an extra feature for people looking for a super hot cup of espresso. The machine we tested didn't come with the cup warmers (there are two models the Arctic white and the Titanium which has the cup warming features), but we did find putting the cups on the side very convenient.
We've been testing the new Nespresso Le Cube over the past week and have to say, "Tasting lots of Nespresso espresso capsules is a good thing." Each Nespresso flavor really does have a distinct taste and flavor. Nespresso divides their capsules into two types: espresso and lungo.
A lungo is essentially the single serve coffee version - a little more volume and just the right amount of crema on the top. We really like the Finezzo lungo. It's a bit more mellow than the other espresso capsules and has a hint of acid in the flavor. It also lingers a bit on the tongue and back of your throat for some added flavor and finish. We'll have a full review of the new Le Cube soon.
The Nespresso Le Cube features both automatic large or lungo (single serve coffee) and espresso settings, and requires use of Nespresso Capsules. There are two cup holding locations on each side of the Nespresso Le Cube that will fit your espresso shot glasses, and it has a holding area for over 14 used Nespresso espresso capsules that get automatically ejected after making each cup of espresso or lungo.
We'll have a full review with pricing and availability details soon.
