New Nespresso limited edition (Dhjana) coming 9/12

Postby jbviau » Fri Aug 19, 2011 4:44 am

Well, if I'm translating correctly (with Google's help in the case of Dutch), here's the skinny on Dhjana:

1. A blend of Brazilian, Colombian, and Costa Rican Arabica beans along with Indian Robusta
2. Intensity: 8
3. Beans are 100% AAA-certified (Nespresso's Sustainable Quality program)
4. Capsule color: copper-ish
5. To be released 9/12

I will order a sleeve or two of those.
Reminds me I still haven't finished my review of the Onirio capsules. I like them a lot.

Thanks. That's a hilarious press release.

Nespresso wrote:From the luminous hills of Mogiana in Brazil, it takes its balance and intensity from the region’s finest Arabicas. The Arabicas grown at the heart of the luxuriant tropical forests of Costa Rica gives it a velvety texture with subtle milky notes, while its refreshingly fruity notes arise from the naturally misty skies of the Colombian Andes. From the heart of the undergrowth sheltered by tall trees, Indian Robusta brings to it full body and power, nuanced by a fine bitterness.

They forgot to extol the virtues of a few other types of landscape features and ecosystems, I think. Where's the love for mountain ranges? Tundra? Prairies? ;)

The new Flash animation--oops, I mean capsule--is here!

I'm seeing $6.40 per sleeve, the same price as the Pure Origins.

Is anyone ordering this? I think I detect a lack of enthusiasm for Dhjana, but I could be reading too much into the silence. Personally, I'm not placing an order, but that's mostly because I've got a surplus of capsules around here and a newish espresso machine to play with on top of it all.

Josh, I just ordered 5 sleeves of the new one along with some of my other regulars along even though I was a month away from needing to get any more. It sounds like a good one and I don't want to miss out on reorders if it's extraordinary. Lesson learned from Kazaar where I didn't initially order soon enough and missed being able to reorder by less than a week. I'm more excited about this one than I was their last limited release - Onirio - which was better than I thought it would be. The one before that - Tanzaru - I found disappointing.

By the way, what's your newish espresso machine?

Cool. I'm sure you'll both let us know what you think. Don, I got a Gaggia Classic last month.

Very nice machine. I once had a Rancilio Silvia - very similar. 58mm portafilter, 3-way solenoid valve.
