Even the capsules come with prints - spells collectibles, don't you think?

With an intensity of 8, Monsoon Malabar is an intense coffee with a bold character and unique taste, offering a silky smooth texture. Bearing cereal and biscuit notes with woody and nutty hints, this is best enjoyed neat or paired with milk.

I took things into my own stove and used this in a popular Filipino dessert - Coffee Jelly. 

I made minor tweaks to this recipe;

 2 cups of Monsoon Malabar Coffee 
2 tablespoons of water
3 teaspoons of gelatine
1 teaspoon of sugar

Boil the coffee and water over the stove, simmer and stir in the gelatine and sugar. Adjust sweetness accordingly. I chilled my jelly overnight and achieved the uber wobbly texture! Success! Perfect with icecream and it went well with both the caffeine and non caffeine addicts in the family. 

Monsoon Malabar is available from 2 April at Nespresso Boutiques, online at www.nespresso.com or via the Nespresso Mobile App for a limited period of time. Each sleeve retails at $12.
