Gift the Exceptional with Nespresso’s Limited-Edition Festive Coffees

November 23, 2020

If you’re a coffee lover and are in possession of a Nespresso machine (or thinking of gifting yourself one this festive season), you’ll know the excitement whenever they announce new limited-edition capsules.

With home parties around the corner and these new delicious festive-exclusive coffees and accessories, there’s even more reasons for you to add a Christmas sparkle onto your coffees.


Inspired by the traditions of Italy, Nespresso’s limited-edition Variations Italia range is influenced by traditional Italian sweet treats, including hazelnut cake and amaretti. The collection pays homage to Italian hospitality, celebrating those warm, soft-hearted moments spent with loved ones during the holidays.

There are three coffees to try in this year’s festive line-up, two-flavoured coffees: Variations Italia Amaretti Flavour and Variations Torta di Nocciole Flavour and one intense coffee, Il Caffè.

Variations Italia Amaretti Flavour recalls sweet amaretti biscuits with its indulgent almond and vanilla flavours paired with South American Arabica’s zesty fruit notes for a rounded finish. Try it as a Cappuccino and watch the milk foam marry with this flavoured coffee to develop a silky caramel character.

Variations Italia Torta di Nocciole Flavour offers a beautiful marriage of the South American Arabicas’ lasting cereal taste with notes of toasted hazelnut and vanilla, enlivened with delightful hints of spice to sweeten the deal. Like a sweet pastry in a cup, this coffee’s nutty character takes on a warming vanilla glow and a creamy taste when you add milk.

Il Caffè is Nespresso’s most intense festive coffee to date, at intensity 13. Vietnamese and Indonesian washed Robustas graced with a little Colombian Arabica hit that punchy combination of smooth, velvety taste and roasty, cereal aromas. It takes you right to the heart of the classic Italian espresso experience.


If you’re looking to make something a little more decadent that’s sure to impress your guests this Christmas, try our Cinnamon S’more Hot Mocha recipe using Variations Italia Torta di Nocciole Flavour.

We made our coffee dessert using the Nespresso Barista Recipe Maker. This machine is so smart! It is able to make all kinds of hot and cold drinks, including iced coffee, whipped cream and hot chocolate.

We tried this for the first time and our team was amazed! All you have to do is put the ingredients into the machine, press the button and away you go.
