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.

Through the club, you are able to order your coffee 24 hours a day on the internet, over the phone, by fax or e-mail. Nespresso guarantees that your coffee order will arrive at the address of your choice within two business days.

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."

Review: Nespresso Romeo Single Serve Espresso Machine

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsNespresso Romeo - 07We are very excited to review the Nespresso Romeo before it launches this September. The machine is part of a new "Top Line" from Nespresso, and utilizes their coffee capsule loading system and is aptly named Romeo, as the coffee capsule is placed on a small balcony.

If you're not familiar with Nespresso, they like to divide their uniqueness into what they call, "The Nespresso Trilogy": the hermetically-sealed, iconic capsules with the large variety of Grand Cru ground coffees (their own specially picked coffees), the state-of-the-art, easy-to-use, sleek-looking coffee machines, and the Nespresso Club which offers unmatched personal service for ordering Nespresso Capsules.

Update: You can now purchase the Nespresso Romeo at Amazon.com

Nespresso Romeo Single Serve Espresso Maker

Nespresso Romeo - 1We've been trying to get our hands on a Nespresso machine for a few weeks now. This is in the same league of cost and machine as the FrancisFrancis!, and more like the Keurig or Tassimo machine because of the Nespresso cup/pod that the machine uses. The new Romeo is quite the machine - inspired from Romeo & Juliet. As you can see in the picture - you put the Nespresso pod in the machine at the top, and the coffee comes out to meet your cup below.

Very cool. :-)
