Nespresso Variations 2010 - Caramel. Vanilla and Almond

Starting today, Nespresso Variations are available for purchase through the Nespresso Club website. Each year the Variations line helps to ring in the holiday season for Nespresso fans who like the flavored espresso capsules.

For 2010, the Nespresso Variations website offers a whimsical look at what a world of Nespresso Variations might look like, with balloon races and clouds of whipped cream. They show a "Race" page that appears to be a voting area for your favorite Nespresso Variation flavor. The most popular Nespresso Variation flavor appears to be Almond, then Caramel and Vanilla pulling up the rear.

They appear ready to offer Nespresso Variations screen savers, backgrounds and downloadable concept art that seems to have been the early workings for the splashy holiday site.

Links, and More after the jump......


Nespresso Variations 2010 Available Early?

We previously read that Nespresso Variations would be available by December 1st for select users and December 6th for the genera

l public, but I was able to link through the Nespresso Variations extensive splash pages into my Nespresso Club Account and order some up. I really don't think that we're that special, but let us know how you make out.

Nespresso Variations Flavors 2010

This year, the Nespresso Variations 2010 are refocusing on the past popular flavors that helped to create the buzz that helps Nespresso fans welcome the holiday season. The flavors are as follows:

  • Vanilla - "a balanced harmony between the rich and velvety aromas of vanilla and the mellow flavour of the Livanto Grand Cru creates a blend distinguished by its full, enveloping taste, infinitely smooth and silky on the palate." Brought back from the 2006 line.
  • Caramel - "the sweet vanilla flavour of caramel softens the roasted notes of the Livanto Grand Cru results is a delicate gourmet union which evokes the creaminess of soft toffee." Brought back from the 2008 line - See our review of the 2008 Nespresso Variations Capsules.
  • Almond - "the sweet and lightly toasted almond notes accentuate the roundness of the Livanto Grand Cru and this melt-in-the-mouth blend evokes the mellow taste of Amaretti biscuits." Brought back from the 2007 line - see our review of the 2007 Nespresso Variations capsules.

Recall that these are layered on top of the Livanto base capsule roast that brings its mid-darkness roast profile and its acidity to help brighten and deliver the layers of flavors.

How Many Calories in the Nespresso Variations Espresso?

Several readers have asked about calorie count for these espresso capsules, and because they are really just flavored espresso, with just a hint of flavoring on top, you really only see the calories from the espresso itself. That calorie count is really less than 5 calories per shot (as little as one calorie). I like to add a small spoon of sugar (less than a quarter teaspoon) to my Variations, so I maybe see no more than 10 calories per shot of Nespresso Variations.

Compatible Nespresso Brewers

The Nespresso capsules can be brewed in the new super slim Nespresso Citiz, the Nespresso Essenza C-100 or the Nespresso Le Cube brewers, among others in their line.

Just got around to checking-out the new Variations 2010 website and all I can say is GOOD LORD! That is one ELABORATE bit of Flash animation!

The animators must have worked half the year just prepping this site. VERY nicely done :-)

Here in Hungary you can order from their website, using the 1-800 phone ordering service and you can buy from the boutique from 1st Dec.

Yep, Nespresso Club's Canadian site is also showing them as available. Just ordered a bunch.

Didn't see the usual cup/saucer sets though. Likely because these aren't new flavors?
