Pumpkin Spice Cake Espresso (Nespresso) By @Cinabar

Pumpkin Spice Cake Espresso (Nespresso)

Let me start by explaining about Nespresso’s flavoured coffees as they are not what you’d expect if you have never tried them. Normally, a flavoured coffee is an overly sweet, overly flavoured drink from a massive hit of added syrup. I like this style of drink so I’m not complaining. I am more than happy to try the syrup heavy varieties in the high street coffee shops and enjoy every bit. Nespresso are in to subtle flavour with no added sweetness at all. Interestingly, if I have regular coffee I don’t add sugar, so this also works for me.

The Pumpkin Spice Cake Nespresso pods are a limited edition but do appear every year, which is awesome. The box is quite subtle but the pods themselves are a fab orange colour and perfect for the season. I pooped the pod in the machine and made myself an espresso. Even as the coffee was running through I could pick up the spices.

This is a good strong espresso, there is a lovely rich dark coffee taste, and through it there is a warming but gentle spice from cinnamon and nutmeg, and just the subtlest hint of sweetness presumably making up the cake element of the flavour.

This is a soothing autumnal drink, and I love the gentle spices it contains. I will try making up one of these pods as a latte, and think that will be amazing too. A lovely afternoon pick me up.
