Site is live
http://www.nespresso-us.com/variations/

$0.70/capsule, multiples of 50.

Have to say I'm disappointed in the website - last few years they have had some fun artwork.

Eh, I like when sites load quickly, so I'm kind of happy about the lack of bloat.

It has been a long time since I posted here! Anyway, I got two of the Variations this week (arrived one day after order/shipping, even though I only paid for two -- nice!) and they are pretty good!

I think they've done both hazelnut and coconut before, yes? Anyway, these are for you mocha fans. Add some chocolate to hazelnut, you get a Nutella espresso. Add some chocolate to the coconut, you get a Mounds bar espresso. Add some additional orgeat syrup and it becomes and Almond Joy. :)

I tried both hazelnut and coconut with a sprinkle of hot cocoa mix on it (I'm out of the better stuff) and the result is darned good. It's funny, because I don't really like the Livanto (the base of these coffees) by itself, but it's OK flavored. The hazelnut smells great. The coconut one smelled odd to me at first but tasted fine. I haven't tasted either without the sprinkle of cocoa, however.

I'm not typically a flavored coffee drinker, but it is nice to have it around Christmas. And these are good flavors. I still have some of the Cherry ones left from last year because that didn't do it for me at all. These will be gone soon.

Macadamia nut I didn't try, so I'm curious about that.

Current fave drink: espresso macchiato with cream instead of milk. :) Tastes like dessert!

Unfortunately I had some serious life stuff pop up just after that, so this is one of the websites I had to set aside for a while. Occasionally I would stop by and read something, but that was it.

^^^ Forgot to mention before that I feel the same way...
