UPDATE: See our Review of Nespresso Dhjana
Nespresso will be releasing their Dhjana Limited Edition Grand Cru, and it sounds like it will be a complex blend of several varieties that sound pretty enticing. The strong blend (an "8" on the Nespresso Intensity Scale), will be a blend of Arabica coffees from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica and a Robusta from India. The Indian Robusta should provide enough kick to make it a full bodied strong flavored blend that balances out the acidity from the Colombian and Costa Rican coffees.
Nespresso is touting their sustainable coffee production platform with this launch citing that all of the coffee is sourced from a new "AAA" program called Ecolaboration. The program offers financial and training assistance so that small farmers can grow high quality coffees in a sustainable manner. By 2013, Nespresso has pledged to get all of its coffee from the program. Clearly, it's a tough job and one that has a long investment cycle, because they started the program about a decade ago.
Look for more news on Nespresso Dhjana in the coming days. We have confirmed with a representative of Nespresso that the release in teh US will be on September 12th.
