Nespresso Singatoba Special Club Capsules Now Available

nespresso_shot_club_0909.jpg

Nespresso has released their Singatoba special Edition for the fall, and it is available now from the Nespresso Club. The special edition is make from "100% Blue Batak Arabica grown around Lake Toba in northern Sumatra." Nespresso is using a technique called split roasting from the sounds of their description to do a shorter roast on the early harvest in order to preserve the light fruity notes, while roasting more slowly and to a darker endpoint for the more mature beans in order to develop the flavor intensity and strength. With a "fruity and woody" flavor profile, the capsules sound interesting. They have an intensity rating of 8.

The Nespresso Limited Edition Singatoba cups are designed by Laurence Bost, to have a gentle dance interspersed with small highly prized coffee beans, representing a circles of children dancing hand in hand.

I already ordered mine up from the Nespresso Club store; hurry, these usually sell out.

I was been given a "stick" of the Special Club 2009 from a friend that visited a Nespresso Boutique in Montréal. Let me try to give you guys a short review. Capsules are beautiful, on a bright royal blue color, foil cover brings just the Nespresso logo without the name of the blend, as usual for those limited edition blends. While it brews, the aroma already warned me that a fruity, acidic espresso was coming. Crema is moderately thick, but not as thick as an Arpeggio, for sure. On the palate: Woody? A little. Fruity? Yes. Acidic? A LOT. For those of you fans of acidic coffee, this is a must buy. I dare saying that it makes your mouth water. Worth a try, definitely.
