Cheese, meat, wine – some of the most pleasurable things in life get better with age. Now joining this development is the aromatic black nectar of early mornings – Coffee. For the first time ever, the world’s first aged coffee comes into the world thanks to Nespresso, who recently launched its latest Limited Edition, Selection Vintage 2014.
Basically, it’s coffee that has been meticulously and expertly aged for a good three years to develop new sensory dimensions through its maturing, resulting in a truly unique vintage finish that is sinfully rich, mellow, and luxuriously velvety.
Fresh Arabica beans of exceptional quality were sourced and harvested from high altitudes in the Columbian Highlands. Then begins the modern aging method that’s been pioneered by the experts of Nespresso, using very specific controlled conditions to reap the benefits of aging. Time, oxygen, humidity, light, and atmospheric pressure is constantly regulated as well as the implementation of a rotation system for the bags of harvested coffee in order to ensure the ideal aging process. The smallest change in the surrounding conditions would affect the final taste. In the end, you’re left with a steaming cup of coffee with a complex flavour that’s laced with an elegant woodiness, softened fruity notes and an incredibly smooth, velvety texture.
“With the launch of Selection Vintage 2014 we wanted to introduce an entirely new flavour for a unique coffee experience,” said Geoffrey Dalziel, Business Development Manager of Nespresso Malaysia about this new product. “Coffee culture in Malaysia has evolved tremendously over the past few years, and coffee is now more appreciated for its taste, uniqueness and origin. To do this, we took a concept that is well known in the food and drink industry and applied it to coffee. This carefully tailored process has resulted in an outstanding coffee with a very distinct flavour profile.”
Selection Vintage 2014 is available for a limited period until the 28th March 2017 from Nespresso worldwide. To place an order, click here, or call their Customer Relationship Centre at 1800-80-7001.
