Espresso Review - Hiline Broadway

Posted on Thu, Oct 16, 2014

Broadway is a dark roast espresso brought to us by Hiline coffee.  Hiline manufactures Nespresso compatible capsules providing us with a premium alternative to brew in our prized single serve espresso machines at a valued price.  

Most Nespresso compatible capsules come with an intensity rating on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the darkest. Broadway falls pretty high on the scale with a rating of 9/10.  This left me feeling a little intimidated...I do enjoy dark roast coffees but, still fear that the roaster may overdo it and leave me with a brew completely devoid of coffee taste replaced by burnt bitterness.  Luckily, this was not the case with Broadway.

With the addition of Hiline Nespresso compatible pods to our line of products my cute little red Pixie brewer has seen a lot of action.  She is looking a little, ok a lot dirty as of late.  I am well versed as to how to clean my Keurig, been there done that dozens of times.  But, it dawned on me that I had no clue how to clean my espresso pod brewer! After a little bit of trial and error I figured out an easy system for getting her spic and span.

Coffee Review: Chelsea Nespresso Compatible Capsules

Posted on Thu, Aug 14, 2014

I am so excited to see the growing selection of choices for Nespresso drinkers including our very one product line by Hiline coffee.  Before the addition of these Nespresso compatible coffee capsules ordering your beloved Nespresso coffee was difficult, intimidating and quite frankly expensive.  I have actually owned the Pixie machine for quite sometime but, rarely used it...simply because the espresso was not easily accessible, until now.  Now it is an...shall we say...addiction, obsession...both? I must admit that having both the Keurig and Nepresso in my kitchen has me basically spoiled rotten and happy as a lark. 

I am so incredibly thrilled to have the opportunity to review all of the roasts available starting with Chelsea

Roaster Profile ~ Hiline Coffee

Posted on Thu, Aug 07, 2014

As you read in my recipe for Dirty Chai this week, I am a dirty cheater.  Yep, I have been stepping out on my Keurig every. single. day.  Hiline coffee made me do it. 

Hiline is an artsy start up company in New York City.  A young group of entrepreneurs, Harvard Business School graduates and coffee lovers banded together to solve the age old issue that all Nespresso users face...where to buy the capsules. Nespresso capsules are quite elusive, they can be difficult to find and once you do find them they are intimidating to select. 

This very dilemma led Gene Kakaulin (Hiline CEO) to the idea of creating a Nespresso alternative.  Gene has a thriving career as busy Wall Street executive but, what his constituents might not know about him is he is also a certified barista with a true passion for specialty coffee. Gene gathered a few friends and investors and viola...Hiline was born.
