Savour the taste of aged coffee for the first time with Nespresso Limited Edition, SELECTION VINTAGE 2014. Made from fresh Arabica coffee sourced from high altitudes in the Colombian highlands, SELECTION VINTAGE 2014 was harvested three years ago and then meticulously aged resulting in a complex taste with elegant woodiness, softened fruity notes and a smooth velvet-like texture.
Nespresso SELECTION VINTAGE 2014 was aged using a completely new method pioneered by the Nespresso experts who wanted to benefit from the effect of ageing but by using specific controlled conditions. This included regulating the time, oxygen, moisture in the air, light and atmospheric pressure. A rotation system was also implemented for the bags of harvested coffee to ensure the ideal ageing process.
Traditional coffee ageing began in the 1700s as coffee harvested in Indonesia would sail to Europe in ships that travelled for a number of months. As the coffee beans are exposed to the constantly changing environments such as wet sea air, salt water and the sun, the physical structure of the beans will change which affected the way the beans would react to roasting and the aromatic potential of the coffee.
Geoffrey Dalziel, Business Development Manager of Nespresso Malaysia explained, “With the launch of SELECTION VINTAGE 2014 we wanted to introduce an entirely new flavour for a unique coffee experience. 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. To age the coffee we needed to start with beans of an exceptional quality and then store them in very specialised conditions that we regulated constantly. Any minuscule change in the moisture, temperature, time, atmospheric pressure, light and oxygen conditions would affect the final taste. This carefully tailored process has resulted in an outstanding coffee with a very distinct flavour profile”.
During the launch, Chef Sherson Lian presented a customised menu of ingredients which are aged too, that compliments the Limited Edition SELECTION VINTAGE 2014 created exclusively for the launch.
