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.

Nespresso Variations - Ultimate Coffee Creations

Nespresso variations 2013

Nespresso has added Nespresso variations Vanilo, Caramelito, Ciocattino to it's permanent line of coffees available all year round. We assume Nespresso will still have seasonal coffees that are flavored, but it's nice to see Nespresso respond to it's single serve coffee drinkers requests to have flavored coffees available for purchase all the time.

Nespresso Napoli and Trieste Limited Edition Coffee Capsules

Nespresso limited 2013 april

Single Serve Espresso has word that Nespresso will be launching limited edition Napoli and Trieste coffee capsules sometime in this middle of this April 2013. 

  • The Napoli capsules is a blend of South American, African and Asian beans that have a dark, complex and STRONG flavor with a bit of a Robusta finish. The capsule sis said to be an 11 on a 10 scale, much like the fabled Kazaar all Robusta blended capsule. With the Napoli, Nespresso is pushing a 'Black Gold' concentrated coffee concept of taking the espresso as a Ristretto, (25ml) or an even shorter 15ml. We'll have to see.
  • The Trieste is a bit less intense, but not by much. The Trieste capsules will be 100% Brazilian and African Arabica beans with a nutty and chocolatey flavor coming in at a 9 on the 10 intensity scale.

There's a launch site of course and it's really well designed.

Nespresso Linizio Lungo Coffee Capsules

Caps 300 LINIZIOLUNGO

Nespresso has announced Linizio Lungo Coffee Capsules. These are made from Pure Arabica from South America. The Linizio Lungo is a well-rounded blend made of Brazilian and Colombian coffee. The tasting notes are: 'Malted cereal notes on a sweet base in reminding of sugar cane.'" It's nice to see Nespresso adding more varieties of coffee that will be available on an ongoing basis. The Linizio Lungo Coffee Capsules will work in any Nespresso brewer.

Giant Nespresso U and Me Mall Ad

Nespresso u ad

Nespresso is really pushing the Nespresso U machine in shopping malls around the Boston area. We spotted this floor to ceiling ad just a few days ago and had to share. We also find it really interesting Nespresso and Nintendo both have U machines out this holiday season - the Nespresso U and the Wii U. Maybe the two machines together make a perfect modern life of coffee and video games.
