Nespresso Variations Espresso Capsules - 2009
Each winter Nespresso launches a set of Nespresso variations that have are built around unique flavor profiles. Three new varieties, "Gingerbread," "Apricot" and "Chestnut Cream," launch this year and are available at Nespresso's site. I still have some of last year's Ginger flavored Espresso capsules in the 'frige for safe keeping - they were definitely my stunning favorite.
- CHESTNUT CREAM Reminiscent of very sweet and concentrated jarred chestnut cream, recalls the traditional "marron glace," or "candied chestnut."
- APRICOT Reminiscent of a very fresh, ripe and juicy apricot; unlike the more intense dried apricot flavor.
- GINGERBREAD Reminiscent of crystalized orange zest or peel, honey, cinnamon and ginger in a brown sugar base.
I already ordered mine this week, and I would suggest that you order yours quickly. These have a tendency to sell out and they are well worth the wintertime treat.

The apricot is by far the best of the three...and I'm not a flavored coffee person.
Even though it's never mentioned by Nespresso reps and customer service people, by keeping your capsule in the machine and extending the lungo, it makes an incredibly smooth, flavorful, full-bodied cup of Americano.
I was at Starbucks today and ordered a small cup of coffee. It was undrinkable after having a cup of Nespresso Americano. Boy do they over-roast their coffee. Bitter, acidic, and just plain foul.
