NESPRESSO SELECTION VINTAGE 2011


Earlier this week I had the chance to discover the new Nespresso Limited Edition Selection Vintage 2011. It is the first time that Nespresso has produced aged coffee, which took six years to mature. 


The event took place at the fabulous Château de Bourglinster. 


René Mathieu, chef at the Château's restaurant La Distillerie, had created a range of mini salty and sweet dishes made with various classic Nespresso aromas. 


Crème brûlée (Indriya)


Glace café et orange (Rosabaya)


Gaufrette served with a glass of Selection Vintage 2011



I also found out that there is a new Nespresso Expert machine that let's you brew your coffee according to your preferences. It serves four different cup sizes (my Nespresso machine only does two) and the temperature can be set to hot, very hot and extra hot. There is also a hot water only option. It is bluetooth compatible and you can operate it via your smartphone. For those who love coffee with milk, a Nespresso Expert&Milk version is available as well. 


It was a delight to try Selection Vintage 2011 (in some countries Selection Vintage 2014 is available instead) and taste its bold woodiness. When you run the coffee, you clearly notice the thicker texture as opposed to other Nespresso varieties. 



It was also interesting to learn about capsule recycling and how Nespresso deals with local farmers, who get paid premiums which are way above the standard market price. There is also an AAA Farmer Future Program that allows Colombian farmers, for example, to benefit from pension schemes. Nespresso also works in partnership with Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade. 


Nespresso lovers will definitely enjoy Selection Vintage 2011. To learn more, click here. Available while stocks last.

  14. I love coffee as well, and this event looks so lovely! The menu by chef Mathieu looked very promising. You must have had a wonderful time there! Also, what a novel idea to put out on the market "aged" coffee. First time hearing about this, and I hope I can try it someday!
