The last time we this dream collaboration popped up, we got four new iterations of the legendary biscuit, the best being “Black Forest” and the not-best being “Salted Caramel & Vanilla” (sorry guys, Zumbo did it better). Now we’re getting three vastly different flavours, and from a quick taste test by the offices over here at the AU, we can confidently state that this range is well worth a look. ...

Such a substantial departure from the long-established pods that have been churned through Nespresso machines for years is a bit of a risk for such a dominant company. Introducing their new Vertuo line-up earlier this year represented a huge leap for the brand, presenting several models – some made by Breville and DeLonghi – onto the market which make use of the much larger, fatter and refined VertuoLine capsules. It’s said to be just another step towards the perfect single-serve coffee, with a decent range of capsules (hopefully that’ll be built upon in 2018) suited to various tastes no doubt gathered by the company through years of consumer research....
