Four new tastes of Pleasure.

The Coffee Addict in me is happy again. Nespresso, my beloved espresso brand, threw four new capsules on the market. There are three new Special Edition blends, but it this case they want us to refer to them as "Pure Origin Grand Cru Espressos". Whatever, I'd probably call them Single Malt, to make things easier, but in this case "single" mean single country. And yet again they managed to add three totally different experiences to their coffee range.
The fourth one is an addition to their Lungo range. I bought it just to try it, because I don't want my coffee to be lungo. So, dear LJers, I hereby present you four new tastes of my pleasure!!!

Light golden variety is Dulcao from Brasil and "light golden" is also the taste of it. It's light and somewhat nutty. Olive green variety is Indriya from, well... India. It's probably the strongest and most intense of all Nespresso shots. I am in love. Pinkish capsule is Rosabaya from Columbia. It's a bit too light for my taste, but with a few drops of full fat milk it has more to tell. Green/Blue is Fortissio Lungo, by far the strongest long coffee from Nespresso. I'll give it a go. And then again. Maybe.

Four new tasty reasons to make my morning less miserable. :)

Life should be spent on such wonderful things. :P

I would prefer other wonderful things... but Tomaz already has them. :P

I SO agree with you.

And I do all I can. :)

We just got those same flavors ourselves, with the exception of the Fortissio - they were already out of it when we ordered. I'm enjoying the Rosabaya this morning - but I've mixed it with a lot of milk and some Irish Cream - it's more latte' but it is tasty! We love our Nespresso - glad to see you do too! Have a great day.

I am totally hooked on Nespresso. It's the best choice so far for a proper home made espresso. And my machine is small enough to take it with me on almost every longer vacation... skiing, seaside, all.... :)

And I only drink my coffee with milk, no extra things are put in. Well, sometimes I make it seriously corretto as Italians say. :)

Big coffee lover here too. You folks over there appreciate coffee as it's meant, not the swill they produce over here.

Oh, go to Germany and enjoy some pretty obvious "American" coffee. Luckily, we live next to Italy, so it's all good. :)

I am a total coffee addict.

very nice.... good coffee is essential for a great sunday morning!!! it helps with monday morning too :)

i have to get myself one of these machines.
Mar. 29th, 2009 10:05 pm (UTC)
Yup... makes me tick in no time. :)

Nespresso system rocks!

That's an addict with a PASSION! :)

I have never thought of/felt about coffee like this... it sounds almost erotic (in a very subtle way) to me, no kidding. You can laugh at me as much as you want to.

God, I have a broken heart and a terrible cold, and it's raining outside, and I'm translating a boring and difficult text, yet I'm still capable of finding something erotic in the way you describe the taste of coffee... is it just That Time of the Year or what? :)
Mar. 29th, 2009 10:00 pm (UTC)
It's not particularly erotic, in my opinion. It's how I see and deal with the things I like. It all gets my full attentuon. :)
Mar. 29th, 2009 10:21 pm (UTC)
And my attention goes in all directions... female! :)

Mar. 29th, 2009 10:22 pm (UTC)
So that could be the problem... you need to focus on one thing sometimes. :)
Mar. 29th, 2009 10:30 pm (UTC)
Oh, I can focus on one thing when it's necessary. :)

A friend of mine has a Nespresso machine and it does great work, I thought about getting one but it's cheaper to have a drink made ofr me in the morning.
Mar. 31st, 2009 10:16 pm (UTC)
But I am an espresso freak. And it's surely costs more than 34 eurocents in every single joint in Ljubljana. :)

OK like the many other people I can't start the day without a good cafine hit and I am choosy about the coffee I drink. I understand that people like choice but I can't help feeling that all these home coffee machines are a backwards step. Another bench-top appliance that produces so much unnecessary packaging. A container for every cup of coffee, a box for each packet of refills and probably a plastic bag to hold the refill cartons. I also saw my first coffee machine out on the roadside the other day with the rest of the rubbish. I love my Italian stove-top espresso. I love filling it, waiting for that hiss of steam and the wonderful aroma that permeates the room...and it will outlive me for sure. Just sayin
Mar. 31st, 2009 10:16 pm (UTC)
And.... you should just try it.

Just sayin

Re: Nice image
Hey, Rinie! :) You know how "my" coffee tastes like. I hope you enjoyed it.

And thanks for pic comment. Now you know I also need a wide angle 2.8 lens. :)

Mar. 31st, 2009 10:27 am (UTC)
do you want some caramel ltd edition too?
I have a ton of it ,I have to sell some due to a mistake my bf made buying them ;D
Mar. 31st, 2009 10:19 pm (UTC)
I should think of it. I am not a fan of coffee that does not taste like coffee. I go mad if I get let's say a cappuccino with some cocoa powder on a top of it. EEEEEEWWW! :)
Apr. 2nd, 2009 04:41 pm (UTC)
well... when we talk about coffee... my beloved is only one ... Illy!
Apr. 2nd, 2009 10:38 pm (UTC)
So you are monogamous then? LOL
Apr. 3rd, 2009 06:10 am (UTC)
nooo.... I have sex and like and admire also other coffees, I love to try also others, but my beloved, the choosen is one...
Apr. 3rd, 2009 02:36 pm (UTC)
I tend to be terribly monogamous in love and very promiscuous with coffee brands. :)
Apr. 5th, 2009 06:29 pm (UTC)
I also adore Illy, but Nespresso got me charmed with all the selection it offers. :)
