Best Nespresso capsules (2021) - Caffe2go

Nespresso has a very wide range of espresso cups and types of coffee. It can indeed be very difficult to choose a tasty coffee when you have a choice of more than 30 types of coffee capsules! That's why we have listed the most delicious espresso cups for you.

Ispirazione genova livanto

As the name suggests, Ispirazione Genova Livanto is a coffee with roots in the Italian city of Genova or Genoa. This city was a trading town where a lot of coffee was traded. The coffee is lighter roasted than other typical Italian coffees giving it a softer taste and less bitter on the tongue.

The coffee beans in the Ispirazione Genova Livanto are mainly South American Arabica beans and in the coffee you can see notes of cocoa and spices while the aftertaste is very smooth and caramel-like. This coffee is a very good choice for people who may not like the bitterness of coffee but still like to have a cup. A perfect coffee to drink on your way to work!

Ispirazione Florence arpeggio

A second very tasty coffee inspired by Italian coffees is this Ispirazione Firenze Arpeggio. Florence has long been known as one of the first cities where cafes and coffee bars occupied a large place in society.

This coffee was inspired by the fact that for a long time Florence was the beating heart of Italy. Florence was a true center of Italy, not only politically but also culturally. The coffee has notes of cocoa from the south, but is just as fruity as the coffees in the north of Italy. This coffee can be served as an espresso as well as a Nespresso Lungo.

The Ispirazione Firenze Arpeggio consists mainly of South American Arabica beans and is both bitter and sweet and has a very intense aftertaste. This coffee is also very tasty for camping or during your shuttle trip to work.

Ispirazione Palermo Kazar

Palermo! The capital of the Italian Mafia. This coffee is criminally delicious. Palermo is historically a multicultural city in Sicily. Nespresso tried to bring together this multicultural history of Palermo in this Palermo Kazar. This strong coffee is not for the wimps and consists mainly of Robusta beans mixed with South American Arabica beans. In this way the Palermo Kazaar brings the strong African coffee together with the Arabica coffee. The Palermo Kazaar is not a Nespresso Lungo for wimps. He is very punished and has undertones of black pepper.

If you want to wake up quickly, this Palermo Kazaar is highly recommended. You can drink it very well when you go hiking and camping or on days when you just need that extra push at work.

Ispirazione Roma

How can we forget Rome when we talk about good coffee inspired by the coffee that people have historically served in Italian cities? These Nespresso capsules are perfect for people who just want a coffee but don't want anything crazy or interesting - just a coffee is good.

This coffee designed by Nespresso experts is the lightest and the shortest roasted making it a little less bitter. However, this means that it is a little more fruity and above all a little more acidic than the other coffees in this blog. The flavors in Ispirazione Roma are mainly very woody and very grainy. This Nespresso Lungo is the perfect coffee when you feel like having a primal Italian espresso at the campsite or on the road!

Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano

Although the ristretto is not for everyone, this is of course a very typical Italian coffee. This coffee blend is inspired by the typical coffee culture of Italy. Nespresso tried to shape the Italian Ristretto not only to improve it but also to stick to the principles and history of the ristretto.

For the Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano, Arabica beans were roasted very quickly to preserve their fruitiness without becoming too sour. This means that the Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano is very fruity with a full body. As you already know, a ristretto is of course very punishable which makes it suitable as a coffee in the morning when you wake up or in the afternoon when you need a small boost of energy.


Are you looking for a good coffee to drink with milk? Then the Corto capsule might be something for you. The Corto coffee is composed by Nespresso Experts to create the perfect coffee to drink with a dash of milk. Corto is a Spanish style coffee (Cortado) where the coffee beans are roasted for a long time to bring out the flavor. Just because the coffee has been roasted so long, the coffee is very black.

In terms of taste, Corto is a very intense and strong coffee that is fairly bitter. You can taste it has been roasted for a long time and it offers a very rich aftertaste when you add a dash of milk to your coffee. You can drink a Corto with your favorite kind of milk - both cow's milk and vegetable milk. If you like to add a splash of milk to your coffee from your coffee machine, you can take some milk with you in a metal drinking container.

Volluto Decaffeinato

Not everyone is a big fan of the effects of caffeine. The Volluto Decaffinato was invented for this purpose. This deca coffee has a very balanced taste so it can be drunk by many people and is often recommended by Nespresso Experts for people who have just bought a Nespresso machine.

The Volluto Decaffeinato is a Nespresso Lungo that consists mainly of Brazilian Arabica beans. This deca coffee is very sweet with a rounded taste and a creamy aftertaste.

The Volluto Decaffeinato is a perfect coffee to drink in the evening at the campsite or during your trek around the campfire before bedtime.


This coffee inspired by the flavors of the South Asian subcontinent is a very spicy coffee that can be enjoyed with some milk. This coffee has a very intense taste and is a blend between robusta and Arabica beans. In this way, the coffee is not only fruity but retains its bitterness.

The Robusta beans in this coffee are called Robusta Monsoon and are very unique because they are grown in monsoon areas in India. Because of these monsoons the coffee bush gets a lot of water and the beans grow very well. Due to the strong winds that come up during the monsoon rains, the beans tend to have a woody, spicy flavor when roasted and roasted.


Are you a sweet mouth? Then you should definitely try the Chiaro. This delicious coffee from the Barista Creations line recently released by Nespresso and actively promoted by Nespresso Experts is very sweet and has an aftertaste reminiscent of caramel and cookies. The Chiaro can be drunk with milk and sugar or - if you prefer your coffee a little tighter - black.

The Chiaro isn't bitter at all and isn't sour, which can be a lot of fun for novice coffee drinkers. The Chiaro can be prepared perfectly as a cappuccino, but if you want to add some milk to your coffee along the way, you can take your milk with you in a handy drinking container.

Cocoa Truffle

Another good coffee for sweet cups is Nespresso's Cocoa Truffle coffee. As the name suggests, this Nespresso Lungo has a chocolate taste. You can also discover notes of caramel and sweet malt in this coffee.

When making the Cocoa Truffle Nespresso got a lot of inspiration from the creamy delicious chocolate truffles we love so much in the low countries. As a basis they use high quality South American Arabica beans to which they then add cocoa flavor. If you are not convinced you can always ask the Nespresso Expert in the store to taste it.

This coffee can be drunk well with sugar and milk and is very tasty for those cold evenings during your trip or trekking, or for winter mornings on the train to work.


Nespresso has a wide range of espresso cups and has something for every coffee lover: whether you want to drink a deca before bedtime or a coffee together during your winter hike.
