Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing with you a Spicy Gourmandise Coffee recipe using Nespresso. I love my Nespresso VertuoLine machine and the amazing flavors that they offer. It makes drinking coffee at home an indulgence. I feel like I’m at a fancy cafe in the corner when I sip on my coffee in the morning. So when I heard they released a limited edition holiday flavor, I couldn’t be more curious.
Each holiday season, Nespresso creates eagerly anticipated holiday-inspired Limited Edition coffees to continually surprise and delight coffee lovers, just like you and me. Early this November, Nespresso launched the first VertuoLine™ Limited Edition Grand Cru, Swiss Chocolate. Luckily, Nespresso sent me some to try. It’s the perfect drink for all the holiday gatherings. Of course, I won’t hold it against you if you want to make this every night. It’s delicious. It’s a captivating dark chocolate-flavored Grand Cru, that’s why it’s only fitting to share this Spicy Gourmandise Coffee recipe with you.
I made it this morning with some avocado toast for my breakfast. You may have seen it on my snapchat (username styleanthropy). I was so full, I skipped lunch. Yum!
The new Limited Edition Swiss Chocolate Grand Cru coffee features a captivating dark chocolate flavor that enhances the delicious roasted notes of Central American and Brazilian Arabicas. With milk, the aromatic praline notes transform to complement the intense chocolaty taste of this blend. It has an intensity level of six on the VertuoLine scale of one to twelve.
The VertuoLine Limited Edition Swiss Chocolate Grand Cru is available at Nespresso Boutiques (New York, Miami, Boston, San Francisco, Beverly Hills, Dallas, Newport Beach, and Tysons Corner), at Nespresso Boutique-in-Shop locations, through the Nespresso Club (1800-562-1465) number, and on their website at www.Nespresso.com. A sleeve of 10 VertuoLine Swiss Chocolate capsules is priced at $11.00. While supplies last.
