Nespresso launches ‘aged coffee’ pods

Posted by Andrea Hogan on 23rd January 2017

Nespresso is now catering for Australians wanting aged coffee, releasing its ‘Selection Vintage 2014’ coffee pod.

Owner of the Nespresso brand, Nestle, say similar to fine cheeses, meats and wines, coffee can also be aged for a rich and mellow taste.

The ageing process behind the pod took place over several years with the coffee beans coming from the Colombian Highlands.

Global Head of Coffee at Nespresso, Karsten Ranitzsch, said with the launch of the pod, Nespresso wanted to introduce a new flavour with unique qualities.

“To age the coffee we needed to start with beans of an exceptional quality and then store them in specialised conditions that we regulated constantly,” Ranitzsch said.

“Any miniscule change in the moisture, temperature, time, atmospheric pressure, light and oxygen conditions would affect the final taste. This carefully tailored process has resulted in an outstanding coffee with a very distinct flavour profile,” she said.
