This is a review of the Nespresso Esperanza de Colombia Limited Edition original line capsule. Part of the Reviving Origins program; a plan to reintroduce coffee production as a means of living to farmers in countries where coffee production was reduced because of political instability.

See National Geographic’s Beyond the Bean for more information.

The packaging used is the front opening style sleeve.

The Aroma

The Nespresso Esperanza de Colombia coffee has a very mild smell. The smell is fruity like, maybe like cherry.

The Taste

The Nespresso Esperanza de Colombia coffee has a thin crema and has a salt to sweet taste. It has a fruity taste as well, maybe like cherry, with a strong bitter aftertaste.


For the price of $1.10 per capsule, I don’t think it’s worth the extra money for this particular Gran Cru. I can definitely understand why Nespresso has added this Gran Cru to their line of coffees, since it has it’s own unique character, but personally I’m not fond of it.
