Just knowing Nespresso? the China hotel coffee capsules in the room, how many have you collected?
Do you know what is the most popular configuration among guests in a luxury hotel room?
Not a Bluetooth speaker, not an AA grade bath accessories, but a seemingly humble coffee machine
If you want to quickly judge whether a hotel is really high-end, a very intuitive point: Is it an instant or a coffee machine in the guest room.
For people who don’t know coffee, this is just a machine, better than nothing. In the eyes of more and more people, a good coffee machine is a symbol of hotel taste.
In China, coffee has gradually escalated from a trend to a lifestyle within reach of everyone. Those who can afford to stay in boutique hotels are naturally no longer satisfied with a pack of instant coffee bags from the minibar.
During my hotel business trips over the years, I have also developed the habit of observing the brands of capsule coffee in the guest rooms and found that major hotels have really made great efforts in this small world.
Today, I will talk to you about the hidden small benefits of the hotel rooms-capsule coffee. Next time you stay in a hotel, might as well pay attention to whether there is one you like?
Beautiful and quality capsule coffee
No wonder high-end hotels love it
Welcome to contact AFPAK to get more details about Nespresso coffee capsule filling sealing machines
The hotel’s coffee machine brand almost determines what quality coffee you can drink.
Because most of the capsule coffee machines and capsules on the market have a relationship between a carrot and a pit. To use a certain brand of the coffee machine, you have to match the capsule of that brand, just like an Apple mobile phone can only use an Apple data cable. One reason.
Compared with fresh coffee beans, the biggest advantage of capsule coffee is that it is easy to store. The ground coffee powder is sealed in a small box containing nitrogen, and it is usually stored for more than two years and still maintains good quality.
Nespresso, the world’s first coffee capsule product, was invented in 1976 by Nestlé, the world’s largest food company.
Abandoning the wrong commercial market positioning, Nestlé was able to completely open up the situation by opening up the home and hotel markets and set the precedent of the times.
Things with a sense of ritual are always more pleasing. Compared with instant coffee, the advantages of capsule coffee are obvious at a glance. Easily produce a variety of styles such as American, Espresso, and Cappuccino. You can choose any flavors of coconut and nuts. Everyone can make a cup of aromatic coffee like a coffee master.
Coupled with the modern look and high value, the size equivalent to the ipad does not occupy a place, the Nespresso series coffee capsule machine has become the hotel’s favorite “guest seat”.
Nowadays, Nespresso is the most photographed in the hotel.
After seeing the sweetness, the coffee manufacturers did not show weakness, and started to develop their own capsule coffee system. The illy coffee machine, or Lavazza LAVAZZA, also began to gradually appear in hotel rooms.

Part of the reason is the single-handedly seizing the first market. The large variety of capsule flavors and convenient use are the reasons why many five-star and boutique hotels cannot refuse Nespresso.
In addition to the 29 types of capsules currently officially provided, it is also compatible with third-party capsules and is currently the only coffee machine that has third-party capsules.
Different capsule colors correspond to different flavors. A total of six series of basic flavors can be divided. Novices can remember a simple principle: the darker the color, the stronger the flavor.
- Strong coffee (Intenso)
Large cup of coffee (Lungo)
Flavored Coffee (Variations)
Master ingenuity series (Master Origin, beans of origin)
Many flavor choices can sometimes be a sweet burden. If you really don’t know how to choose, you might as well take a look at the following special series.
The capsule packaging of the flavor series is accompanied by a special pattern, which is the easiest to identify. Add vanilla, chocolate, caramel, milk and other factors to perfectly balance the complex flavor of coffee. A cup of fancy coffee with a lovely taste can be prepared in minutes. Friends who have just entered the pit of coffee can choose this series.
Named directly after the origin of coffee, this series of capsules is highly personalized and is a boon for serious coffee lovers.
The fruit acidity of Colombia, the floral scent of Ethiopia, and the sweetness of Nicaragua, fully tap the unique qualities of local coffee beans, and fully demonstrate the unique terroir characteristics of each producing area.
With a light sip, the body and mind will instantly fly from the room at this moment to the densely forested mountains of Sumatra.
The highlight of Nespresso is also the most classic series. The official introduction is that the taste is mild, round and balanced. Several flavors are indeed very durable. They can be flexibly matched with sugar or milk, and they are definitely not worse than the concentration of street cafes.
In addition, if you have a collection addiction, Nespresso’s annual limited edition capsules are also worthy of attention. The strong regional or festive atmosphere is engraved on the high-value packaging. As for the taste, treat it as an out-of-the-box surprise.
Illy coffee capsules
Location: Hotel Eclat Beijing
The Italian national treasure coffee ILLY is considered a regular customer of the coffee circle.
Someone asked on Quora: What is the best coffee brand in the eyes of Italians?
First praise answer: “There is no doubt that it is illy. Every Italian will tell you that although it is expensive, it is indeed the best.”
ILLY’s capsule coffee is called Iperespresso, which is different from Nespresso’s wide variety of flavors. ILLY advocates less and more refined, and only 7 capsule flavors are officially available.
Although the capsule selection is small and the average price is high, it can’t hold the countless quality of pure ring powder-only focus on the origin of the single product espresso, 100% selected Aracabi coffee beans, each one is conscientious.
More precisely, ILLY’s capsule is a 7g standard coffee can, which is generally divided into blended coffee and single-origin coffee.
Blended coffee is divided into red medium roast, black deep roast, green medium roast flavor and low caffeine (signature flavor, caffeine is 0.05% of the red can) according to the roasting degree, and blue American filter.
In the later period, single-product coffees divided by origin were successively launched: brown single-product Brazilian coffee, brown-red single-product Guatemala, and yellow single-product Ethiopia.
The almost impeccable capsule, matched with their coffee machine-it can be said that it is the capsule coffee machine with the program closest to the professional equipment on the market, and the taste is invincible.
The general capsule is directly pierced and used, while the illy capsule is filled with water from the top opening, and the water flows through the compressed coffee powder block through low pressure, which simulates the pre-embedded function of a professional coffee machine, and then performs standard extraction at 9 atmospheres. The second stage of extraction is made into espresso.
If you are an avid coffee lover, then there is no doubt that you will get a cup of more stable mellow coffee from ILLY in the same 30s.

Julius Meinl, commonly known as “Little Red Riding Hood Coffee”, is a Viennese national treasure coffee brand. It has been in the European coffee circle for more than 100 years. The name is quite famous, but its domestic popularity is not high.

As one of the oldest coffee roasters in the world, Julius Meinl spends a lot of time and energy to ensure the high quality of coffee.

Artists, poets and writers from all over the world burst into inspiration here, drink it, and find the unique hedonistic culture of Viennese coffee.
During the 2008 European Cup, Julius Meinl built the world’s largest cafe and launched a series of capsules.
There is only one model of the Julius Meinl capsule coffee machine. A poem is engraved on the side of the fuselage, as if only one capsule and one button are needed to bring the coffee culture of Vienna to your side.
The Inspresso capsule series can be divided into four flavors: concentrated, super concentrated, classic big cup, and low-factor. They are all composed of very special blends, such as the strongest taste of Ristretto Intenso, and the selection of top South American and East African Arabica beans. Paired with Asian high-quality Robusta beans, it has a very strong penetrating power.
In addition to the taste, another highlight of the capsules output by Inspresso is the amazing compatibility, which is compatible with Nespresso and Turmix Essenza.
, DeLonghi Lattissima and many other brands and models of coffee machines.
Because of the small crowd, hotels that use Julius Meinl capsule coffee machines in their guest rooms are also rare. The Kempinski Hotel Shanghai is one of the few.
One is a representative of European high-end hotels, and an exclusive coffee brand for European celebrities. The two styles also fit together.
Haunted place: Hyatt in the U.S.
Although Starbucks is often hacked by the specialty coffee party, I have to admit that most Chinese people opened the new world of coffee at Starbucks. Nowadays, there are still many people who have a cup in the morning and a cup in the evening, and they cannot do without it. .
Starbucks and Nestlé jointly launched 24 capsule series last year, which gathered all the classic flavors of Starbucks, such as “comprehensive coffee”, “single-producing coffee”, and classic beverages such as caramel macchiato and cappuccino. Made with 100% Arabica coffee beans.
Capsules need to be used with Nespresso or Dolce Gusto, another capsule coffee machine brand owned by Nestlé.

Lavazza is almost unknown to everyone in Italy. From a small grocery store to the coffee kingdom, this coffee brand with the traditional Italian family color has gone through four generations and a whole century, and finally became the leader of espresso.
It is also a model of Italian coffee, LAVAZZA is often compared with ILLY.
ILLY emphasizes 100% Arabica beans and relatively shallow roasting, while LAVAZZA really caters to the taste of espresso lovers, many of its capsules are suitable for drinking with pure black coffee, and a small cup of coffee is endless aftertaste.
Lavazza’s capsule coffee technology was also invited by NASA to relieve astronauts from coffee addiction.
Coffee capsules with more than 12 flavors are available, providing coffee with strengths ranging from 5 to 13 and there are also several original single-origin coffees.
It should be noted that its capsule has two systems, Lavazza Blue and Lavazza Espresso Point, which are not compatible with each other.
By the way, not long ago, Lavazza’s first flagship store in China landed in Jing’an Temple, Shanghai. Although Lavazza had several stores in China before, it has not been able to arouse any splashes. I don’t know if it can really enter the sight of Chinese coffee consumers this time. What?
Place of appearance: breakfast room or executive lounge
The capsule coffee machines mentioned above all appeared in the hotel rooms. Let’s talk about it at the end. Franke Pura is a fully automatic capsule coffee machine that is often seen in hotel breakfast restaurants or executive lounges.
The brand Franke is a century-old multinational company in Switzerland. It has a top position in the field of kitchen systems. It often appears on McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King, and even Airbus A380. Its product positioning and quality are all world-class.
Let’s get back to the story of Franke Pura. Don’t look at its ugly appearance. In fact, this coffee machine is very valuable-starting at 75K RMB, the price is far beyond the budget of an average family.
But as far as the hotel is concerned, this coffee machine is the existence of no loss. Putting one in a restaurant or lounge can solve a lot of worries, do not require much maintenance, and save the cost of hiring a barista. The operation is simple, all kinds of fancy coffee make you have a good drink, it is really convenient.
