Fellow caffeine addicts, it’s time to take your daily cuppa up a notch with these NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto capsules
The Honeycombers team is basically fuelled by coffee – trust us, scouring Singapore for the newest drinking holes, blow-dry salons and dance classes without a little caffeine in our veins is a tall order. Flat whites, lattes, and cappuccinos are usually our go-to kind of Joe, but ever since the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto coffee machine arrived at the Honeycombers’ HQ, we’ve been venturing out into new coffee territories – and we’re loving it. If, like us, you want to expand your horizons beyond the typical café options, here are five NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto coffee capsules that you need to try.
For a jolt of energy
To cure the consequences of a late night, give the yummy Catuai do Brasil espresso a shot. With honey and violet notes and a velvety crema, it’s a mini pick-me-up that packs a major punch. Plus, its moniker means “very good” in a native South American language – ’nuff said. It’s limited edition, so get it while it’s still available!
For a swamped workday
Love ’em or hate ’em, we all have those crazy busy days with our schedules packed to the brim. The perfect comrade to help us conquer non-stop meetings and brainstorming sessions? The new and seriously intense Lungo Intenso capsules. Pop in one of these bad boys into your NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto machine and drink up – the delish cuppa with subtle cocoa and earthy notes will power you through the busiest of days. Not to mention, it comes in a larger cup – all the more for sipping.
For slow sippin’
If you’re the sort who prefers taking the time to relish your coffee to tossing back a shot, opt for the Lungo. The smooth medium-dark roast coffee with blackcurrant undertones has the intensity of an espresso shot, but in a larger serving. Give us a biscuit and a good book and we’re all set for a lazy afternoon.
For get-out-of-bed motivation
Prefer something a little stronger and in a larger serving? With an intensity score of 9, the Grande Intenso might be right up your alley. With delish black cherry-like fruity notes and a full body, this may just be the motivation you need to jump out of bed. Also coming in a bigger 180ml serving, this one’s for those who have a lil’ extra time in the morning to savour the rich flavour, or pour some into a travel mug to make your commute more bearable.
For hectic mornings
No matter how late we’re running, there’s always time for coffee. But on those frantic mornings, we like to reach for a Ristretto Ardenza shot to perk up our senses. This Italian cuppa is made out of half the volume of water as an espresso but the same amount of ground coffee, making it extra potent. Oh, and bonus: the peppery aftertaste and hazelnut and liquorice essence makes it super tasty.
