Mini Bites product review – Nespresso Christmas specials

For Christmas 2014, Nespresso have launched a series of stocking fillers and 3 three special Limited Edition Variations which I was invited to try. They are:

Hazelnut Dessert: Paired with the sweet caramel notes of Livanto Grand Cru, the hazelnut aromas will remind you of homemade shortbread cookies.

Chocolate Mint:
An exquisite marriage of the fragrant roasted Livanto Grand Cru with the delectable flavours of dark chocolate and refreshing mint: a must for discerning palates.
Apple Crumble:
A balanced harmony between baked apple flavours and biscuit notes of a crumble highlights the roasted notes of Livanto Grand Cru to evoke a freshly baked apple crumble.

In pretty silver capsules, my favourite was without a doubt the Hazelnut Dessert, hazelnut being a perfect match for coffee: sweet, nutty and very festive.

I must admit, I was not so convinced by the Apple Crumble, I could not detect a specific aroma yet my colleagues who tried it with me found it very pleasant and were more keen on this specific coffee than the other two.
Finally, we all liked the Chocolate Mint: a more subtle, but yet interesting coffee where the Livanto base maintains his strong body.

Apple Crumble, Hazelnut Dessert and Chocolate Mint will be available from 10th November for a limited period of time from Nespresso boutiques worldwide, as well as through orders from the Nespresso Customer Care Centres and online at for £3.50 for a sleeve of 10.
A series of accessories and stocking fillers are also available.

I received the capsules complimentary with no obligation to review; opinions are my own.
