Good things come to those who wait.
Thanks to the release of Nespresso's new Selection Vintage 2014 pods, aged coffee is no longer reserved for micro-roasters or home-brew baristas.
For the past three years, Nespresso has aged coffee from the Colombian Highlands, ensuring even maturation by regularly rotating the beans while controlling the exposure to light, oxygen and moisture. Coaxing out notes of oak with a subtle berry finish from the 2014 harvest, the first offering to come to market is a smooth coffee best served black.
To celebrate, Nespresso and Riedel have co-designed the Reveal Intense Espresso tasting glasses - the small fine-tuned crystal bowl let the coffee's aromas flourish before the nose.
Nespresso's Selection Vintage 2014 and Reveal Espresso Intense glasses are available online and at select Nespresso boutiques. Ten capsules $9.30, Gift box of two glasses $50. Nespresso.com.au
