Few weeks back I wrote an article about the “Nespresso U” machine, one of the most compact and lean coffee machine out there. But no matter how good the machine is, it’s the coffee you put in it that matters. The beauty of Nespresso is their drive to keep coming out with quality new coffee flavours to excite their fans. As a self confessed coffee connoisseur and a Nespresso fan, I popped in to their Elements store for a quick cup.

Nespresso Variations 2012
Every year Nespresso releases a holiday season limited edition coffee flavours called “Variations”. They take their tried, tested and loved “Grand Cru Livanto” coffee and ask their experts to add delicious flavours. The Livanto has the perfect intensity and deep notes, making it ideal to be blended with fruity or nut flavours. In 2011 Nespresso came up with a Chocolate theme, the choice of Variations were Vanilla Blossom, Cherry and Dark Chocolate. The theme this year is Praline. The Variations 2012 are Hazelnut, Macadamia Nut and Coconut.

Hazelnut Variations Nespresso 2012
Hazelnut– Lightly roasted hazelnut flavour has the right balance of nutty notes and coffee bitterness, complimenting the deep notes of Livanto. Perfect for the holiday season.

Macadamia Variations Nespresso 2012

Macadamia Nut – This is a surprise with citrus after taste which comes unexpectedly and delightfully. Rich and full taste of the Livanto can be most appreciated in this Nespresso pod.

Coconut Variations Nespresso 2012

Coconut – The aroma from this coffee will take you miles away on a tropical island, with a Pina Colada in your hand. Deep creamy notes combine with the smoothness of Livanto to make this coffee a real winner.

All the three ‘Variations’ are best to be had with some milk and sugar to bring out the creaminess and tone down the bitterness of coffee a little. If you are creative with your beverages, you can also create your own spin on these flavours by adding your own touch. A really good variation to the coconut flavour coffee is to add ice and milk in a tall glass.
