Nespresso Limited Edition Cauca Capsules

Cacau nespresso

The Limited Edition Cauca Nespresso capsules are going to make your morning a bit brighter. This coffee produced is both juicy and fruity, and the Cauca Grand Cru is grown in the green, rolling mountainous region of Cauca in Colombia, warmed by the equatorial sunshine. These Arabica beans have been diligently processed to highlight the genuine fruity-winey aromas and juicy taste, and make for an exhilarating coffee experience.  

The Limited Edition Cauca capsules will work in all regular Nespresso machines. These capsules are not available for the Nespresso Vertuoline of Nespresso makers.

Bicafe by Espressione Paixao Capsule for Nespresso Machines

Bicafe nespresso alternative capsules

Bicafe by Espressione Paixao Capsule are compatible for use in Nespresso machines. These capsules have been reviewed by one of our Single Serve Coffee Forums members here and the decaf version here. So far impressions have been good for these capsules, and it's nice to see some alternatives to only being able to order direct from Nespresso. These capsules are made in Portugal.

Nespresso VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee and Espresso Maker Review

Vertuo experience about machine

We really love single serve coffee so, when we found out Nespresso was jumping into the dual coffee and espresso wagon we we’re beyond excited. Sure we love a cup of espresso, but we often like a shot of espresso in our single serve cup of coffee. The Nespresso VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee and Espresso Maker is the first Nespresso machine that makes a great cup of coffee or espresso. Each capsule is perfectly measured so that you get a uniformed brew each and every time, and when you put an espresso capsule in the Vertuo it will make espresso. If you use a larger coffee capsule it will make a larger cup of coffee.

Nespresso Limited Edition 2014 - Colombian Terroirs

Caucau santander limited edition nespresso coffees

Nespresso has two new limited edition coffees this year instead of just one. Both of the limited edition 2014 Nespresso coffees are from different growing regions or 'terroirs' in Colombia. Cauca (intensity 6) and Santander (intensity 7) are available now for ordering and will work in all Nespresso espresso machines.

  • Cauca is a coffee with fruity-winey and ripe fruit notes, complex and aromatic, juicy with fine acidity.
  • Santander is a coffee with hints of toasted bread and caramel notes, balanced and round.

We're thinking Santander is more in tune with our coffee palette, but for those of you who like a rich intense juicy cup of coffee than Cauca is for you.

Nespresso for U.S. Coffee Drinkers - VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee Maker

Nespresso Vertuo Line Single Serve Coffee Maker

Nestle and Nespresso are stepping up in size from espresso to single serve coffee with the VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee Maker. Trying to win more customers in the US is Nespresso's aim, and the $299 machine will produce eight types of 8-ounce servings and four espresso blends. The VertuoLine will be sold in the U.S. and Canada at Nespresso boutiques, online and at retailers including Macy's Inc, Bloomingdale's and Williams-Sonoma Inc. 

The new machine, which uses a different capsule, and won't be compatible with older Nespresso machines. We're not sure if the machine will be compatible with the existing set of Nespresso capsules. 

Nespresso represents about 25 percent of Nestle's coffee sales and 4 percent of its 92.4 billion francs in total revenue. So why do this right now? Besides the single serve coffee market growing in size year over year, Nespresso has sought to expand Nespresso outside Europe, where it faces an ever-increasing number of copycat capsules from rivals like Mondelez International Inc. This is much the same competition that Green Mountain faces with the after market and unlicensed K-Cups.

Will you be getting a Vertuo Nespresso brewer? We're pretty interested given how much we like their espresso. No exact date on the debut, but we expect it to go head to head with Keurig 2.0 this Fall.

Dharkan Coffee Capsule from Nespresso

 

Dharkan nespresso grand cru capsule

Dharkan Coffee Capsule from Nespresso is available now and will work in any Nespresso machine. The Dharkan Coffee Capsule is the new grand cru from Nespresso (not to be confused with Tarkan, the Turkish singer). 

The powerful personality of the grand cru Dharkan (intensity 11 on a scale of 10) reveals intense roasted notes as well as touches of toasted cereal & bitter cocoa expressing itself in a velvety & silky texture. To be consumed in espresso or ristretto format for the more Italians among us or for those of us that love a dark rich cup of single serve espresso or coffee.

Dharkan has been accompanied by another grand cru which we talked about a few months ago... With an intensity of 12 out of 10, Kazaar makes its big return. Insomniacs & sleep walkers, go your own way as this grand cru will keep you up all night.

Caffe Vergnano Espresso For Nespresso

Espresso nespresso knock off

Over in the forums there's talk of Caffe Vergnano Espresso For Nespresso by an outside company from Italy that makes these Nespresso compatible capsules. Bed Bath and Beyond is selling them, and they're priced at about $.50 each. Not bad, but not inexpensive by any means. Reviews are mixed and we're not sure if we'll even bother reviewing them. 

Espresso 1882 Capsules are compatible for use with Nespresso coffee machines and feature biodegradable plastic to encapsulate five rich and flavorful coffee blends. Capsules are not compostable and should be treated as non-recyclable waste. So that means - we think they break down better in your landfill of choice. Doh.
