Nespresso Essenza C100 Espresso Maker

What's new about the Nespresso Essenza C100? How about it stopping automatically when the espresso shot is done. We loved the Nespresso C90 but it didn't automatically shut off. Several times we've turned our back thinking it would shut off (all of our other single serve coffee machines do) and gone a little overboard on how much water made it to our espresso shot. The Nespresso C100 will also allow you to pick what shot to put on the brew button. You can choose between the 5 oz lungo shot or a standard espresso shot.

  • High-pressure pump (19 bars)
  • Thermoblock heating element
  • Programmable and automatic control of the amount of coffee in the cup
  • Functional handle allows for easy coffee preparation
  • Automatic ejection of used capsules on lifting the handle
  • Collection container for used capsules
  • Removable water tank (1L capacity)
  • ABS housing

Europe: Stay At Radisson and Drink Nespresso

Wp-Nespresso

We're always on the lookout for the better place to stay when we travel abroad and good coffee is always a factor. Nespresso And Radisson have signed an agreement to offer Nespresso at more Than 175 Radisson SAS Hotels & Resorts across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Okay - so perhaps we don't travel to Europe, the Middle East and Africa every month, but if we do - we know we're guaranteed some quality espresso even at the hotel.

“Like Nespresso, Radisson SAS Hotels & Resorts has a reputation for providing a superior level of customer service,” said Mark Leenders, international director of the out-of-home division for Nestlé Nespresso SA. “Nespresso is delighted to provide Radisson SAS guests with ‘the ultimate coffee experience’ – moments of genuine pleasure and indulgence while enjoying the perfect coffee or espresso.”

Nespresso InCar Single Serve Coffee Machine Concept

5493 10040660434

What would be better than a single cup of perfect coffee or espresso in you kitchen from a single serve coffee maker? How about in your car. The 2005 Nespresso Design Contest kicked off with a call to action for European design students - consider thinking about coffee and especially Nespresso differently. Imagine paying your toll and then dialing up another Lungo? We can. The idea is that the machine fits conveniently into the centre console of a car and doubles as an armrest when travelling.

There's also a Nespresso Card concept which holds coffee preferences for registered individuals, thus enabling them to access their favorite coffee anytime, anywhere. We think we'll go with the car concept - much more interesting.

Limited Edition Bourbon Amarelo Espresso Capsules from Nespresso

Nespresso Bourbon Amarelo
Clear Bourbon NespressoThe Nespresso Club has announced the latest limited coffee capsule for the Nespresso system - Bourbon Amarelo. The coffee claims to have an infinite sweet smoothness combined with an exceptional mellowness. Bourbon Amarelo is also supposed to be enjoyed in an espresso cup over making a larger Lungo coffee with it.

This is one of the more interesting coffees for a Limited Edition and the site for Bourbon Amarelo is also really interesting. You can also pair your new Bourbon Amarelo Nespresso capsules with two different limited edition cups. Interested in Nespresso?

Nespresso Senang Snowman

Img 1779

It's truly winter when you make your first Nespresso Snowman. We fired up our Essenza C90 and put in a couple of Senang Nespresso Capsules to fuel our snowman making session over this past weekend. We've really been enjoying the Senang blend from the Nespresso Club and we love the bright blue Senang capsule color. And as our Snowman can now attest - the left over capsules make for great Snowman eyes!

From Nespresso:

Visu Sp2005Each variety of coffee that makes up the Senang blend is roasted separately and according to different parameters in order to preserve and release each one of its varieties’ most specific and characteristic notes. This technique, known as "split roasting", makes it possible to obtain subtle and varied notes. It also allows each origin’s potential to be exploited while preserving its character, which could be lost or "crushed" during a combined roasting.

Arpeggio

Vivalto-1

We like the snap and bite of the Senang. The coffee has a nice round finish with hints of many milder coffees but still maintaining a unique flavor. If you have a Nespresso coffee maker we think you'll like the Senang club exclusive. Also if you currently have the Vivalto or Arpeggio Nespresso capsules we think they'll make great snowman eyes as well.

Nespresso Romeo Now Available at Amazon.com

We reviewed the Nespresso Romeo earlier this year and the great coffee and espresso it produced simply amazed us. Finally you can purchase the Nespresso Romeo from Amazon.com. Though the Nespresso Romeo costs $799 - we really enjoyed it and thought if you had the money - you couldn't get much better in the Nespresso world than the Romeo. We also recently reviewed the much cheaper "Nano of Espresso Machines" the Nespresso C90 Essenza. We found both machines made great espresso and either would be a great choice. The C90 however is priced at a more reasonable $179.99 but doesn't have the bells and whistles the Nespresso Romeo does.

Review: Nespresso Essenza C90 Espresso Machine from Single Serve Coffee

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsB000B6N23A.01-Abd6L716Mazpn. Sclzzzzzzz -1We reviewed the Nespresso Romeo earlier this year and the great coffee and espresso it produced simply amazed us. The price however at $799 did not. We wanted to review a Nespresso system more in line with the Single Serve Coffee price range of $100-$200 for a typical machine. We called up Nespresso and said - send us a cheaper model but it had better make the same quality espresso!

Update:The Nespresso Essenza C90 has been replaced by the improved Nespresso Essenza C100T. We've tried this new model and love the new programmable cup features and auto off.

Nespresso has answered and sent us their new Nespresso C90-Essenza in orange to review. Coming in at $179.99 at Amazon.com and other online merchants, the C90-Essenza hits the mark we were looking for in price. The C90-Essenza is not a fully automatic machine like the Nespresso Romeo, it features a new handle system and is fitted with a backlit button to manually control the amount of coffee needed to make an espresso or a lungo.

Thoughts of Nespresso All Through My Head

Library - 7640We will have a full review of the new Nespresso Essenza C-90 on Monday, but we had to just expound on how good the Nespresso espresso is and how cute this little C-90 wonder is as well.

We often review machines and just find them to not have that much magic. The thing about the new Nespresso Essenza is - it's magical. The machine is so small and makes such a great little cup of espresso it makes the Single Serve Coffee kitchen a different experience each morning.

What we love is the footprint and single focus of the machine. It's tiny - maybe a 1/4 of the size of a regular machine and it has 2 buttons - 1 for turning it on and one for starting and stopping your shot of espresso. I love single purpose things that are well designed and do what they do best.

Expect a full review on Monday.

We should have a full review soon.

Nespresso Essenza

4429 15080533632-1There's a new Nespresso in town - the Essenza. We're going to try and get a review machine for comparison to the Nespresso Romeo.

"In addition to the new advanced extraction system developed by Nespresso that allows for its smaller size, Essenza incorporates a new lever system, enabling easy introduction of each capsule while ensuring perfect functioning of the machine. With one simple touch of the lever, users can manually control the quantity of coffee in each cup to satisfy their specific preferences by producing either a perfect espresso or “long cup” coffee (110 ml). As with all Nespresso systems, the Essenza is also equipped with a 19 bar high-pressure pump and thermobloc guaranteeing optimal extraction and thus, the full measure of aromas, body, taste and smooth crema that distinguish superb espressos and coffees."
