The new decaffeinated packaging is clearly distinctive from the original Grand Crus and still retains the Nespresso branding. A red dot and description have been placed on the packaging and pod, so if it gets mixed up you can still tell which ones are the decaff pods. The packaging description and intensity ruler is also very helpful when making coffee of choice.

Arpeggio Decaffeinato is dark roasted and rich in flavour, and has the same strong character, intense body and indulgent cocoa notes as the original Arpeggio Grand Cru. The split roasting reveals the specificities of each origin: longer roasting yields a darker bean and releases the intense, cocoa-like flavours of the Brazilian and Costa Rican Arabicas; a shorter and lighter roasting of the selected Arabica from South America highlights its softer fruity notes. Intensity 9Volluto Decaffeinato: Delightfully sweet and smooth, Volluto Decaffeinato has the same rich flavours and round body as the original Volluto Grand Cru. The selected pure Arabica beans are roasted separately to highlight their specificities: a shorter roast unfolds the sweet biscuity notes of the Brazilian Arabica, while a longer but lighter roast preserves fresh and fruity notes of the Colombian beans. Intensity 4
Vivalto Lungo Decaffeinato: A complex yet balanced blend, Vivalto Lungo Decaffeinato has the same rich character as the original Vivalto Lungo Grand Cru: roasted, lightly woody with sweet cereal and subtle floral notes. It is a pure Arabica blend from several origins including South America and East Africa. Separate roasting of the beans brings out the characters of the different origins and develops the complexity of the flavour: a shorter and lighter roast preserves the subtle flowery bouquet of the Ethiopian beans and the fruity notes of the Colombian, while a darker and longer roast reinforces the character of the blend and develops its bitterness. Intensity 4

I had the pleasure to test-drive the Lattissima+ from Nespresso
Making lungo with Vivalto Decaffeinato with Lattissima+
Nespresso & Delonghi Lattissima Plus single-serve coffee machine comes with the milk frother, and it is a good size for domestic kitchens and offices. A great coffee machine that delivers different coffees including Cappuccino & Latte drinks.
Easy to use, sleek and beautifully masculine, square looking machine. Compact size: efficient design with compact technology. Use filtered water as the water tank hasn't got a filter. The milk container is fantastic, it can be store in the fridge and there are two options for more or less foam and a clean button. Espresso, Lungo, one-touch Cappuccino and Latte Macchiato drinks on automatic settings or make your settings.
It's quite fast to make any coffee drink. It's great fun playing around with this machine making different drinks with different foams and crema the layers are quite distinctive. Coffee art is not quite possible. For more info: Lattissima +
Thanks Nespresso for sending the Lattissima+ and the new decaffeinated Grand Crus coffee pods for this personal review.
