Nespresso Variations 2007 - Flavored Espresso
Nespresso has introduced three new flavors for their 2007 variations, which I think are going to be a big hit for those warm winter lattes hanging out with friends around the fire. Last year they introduced Absolute Vanilla, Spicy Apple, and Aniseed. The flavors are Chocolate Orange, Almond, and Cardamom.
After trying them all this past week, I have to say that the three are excellent, and a very high quality, pleasing flavor that combines well with the espresso base. This is not some junky flavored coffee from the bottom of an urn at the local convenience store! My favorite was the Almond, a nice roasted almond that sits well as a stand alone espresso and combines well with the sweetness and milk flavors of a latte.
The Cardamom was a pretty good treat. We like Cardamom flavor around our house and have seen it in holiday cookies and other Eastern food dishes, and again it's a decently flavored espresso that stands up to a latte without any problem.
Finally the Chocolate Orange was a treat too, reminding me of those chocolate oranges that I used to see around Christmas. I liked this one more as a latte than a stand alone espresso, but again, the quality and balance of the flavors was well done. It's clear that they worked hard on these flavored espressos and I like them as a nice treat and change to the usual rotation of Livantos, Romas, Arpeggio's and Decaf Intenso's that are floating around the kitchen.
I made these in my Nespresso Essenza C100T which I like for its small size, ease of use and its excellent espresso.
