Nespresso launches two Italian-inspired limited edition coffees
The espresso machine and coffee giant Nestle Nespresso said it has taken inspiration from Italy’s coffee culture to create two new limited edition coffees, which will be released in April 2013.
Nestle Nespresso, which is an operating unit of food manufacturing giant Nestle, said the two new ‘Limited Edition Grand Gru’ coffees are based on the distinct coffee cultures of the Italian cities of Napoli and Trieste. The two new flavours are named after the cities.
The ‘Nespresso Trieste’ flavour has been designed to reflect the mix of German, Latin and Slavic cultures that are present in the Italian city of the same name. The Company said coffee lovers in the city of Trieste enjoy coffee with milk, without milk, long and short, so the ‘Nespresso Trieste’ is a blend of Arabica beans that can be used to make both espressos and coffees with milk. According to Nestle Nespresso, this new flavour “has an intensity of 9 and reveals notes of chocolate and fresh hazelnuts”.
Meanwhile, the ‘Nespresso Napoli’ flavour has a high intensity and is designed to be drunk short and dark, which is how the residents of Napoli enjoy their coffee. According to Nestle Nespresso, Napoli was home to the first domestic coffee machine, and coffee has a “special place in the heart of Neapolitans. The ‘Nespresso Napoli’ flavour has a smoky taste, said Nestle Nespresso, and “an aromatic profile of wood and dried black tea leaves”. This new flavour is made with a blend of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans.
The two new flavours, ‘Trieste’ and ‘Napoli’ are limited editions and will only be available for a limited time from 8 April 2013 from Nespresso Boutiques nationally.
