Do you ever get drawn into Williams-Sonoma, enticed by the smell of a freshly made espresso? You know, the espressos you can sample while trying out their Nespresso machines? Ahhhhh… The aroma of those coffee drinks gets me every time. And the ease by which they are made is incredible!

HiLine offers a line of coffee that is a premium alternative to the Nespresso capsules, at a much nicer price. And you could win 20 boxes of HiLine coffee capsules ($100 value) and a Nespresso Citiz machine ($209 value) of your very own. I highly recommend that you try to get your hands on this prize – it’s my new favorite way to enjoy coffee at home!

HiLine coffee testing

We received the Nespresso machine and HiLine coffee capsules the day before our family was headed to my sister’s home for the weekend. So we packed it up in the car and took it with us, because I wanted a well rounded opinion of both the coffees and the machine before I wrote a review. We had it set up in a matter of minutes after we arrived, ready to try every last coffee.

The bulk of the coffee was consumed by my husband, sister, brother-in-law, and myself. But my parents and brother-in-law’s parents also enjoyed a few cups. Almost 40 HiLine coffee capsules later, consumed in less than 3 days, every single one of us was giving this process of caffeination an enthusiastic thumbs up.

HiLine coffees

HiLine Coffee Company offers a very nice variety of flavors  – and the machine is slim (just 5″ wide!) and compact, and simply could not be any easier to use, gifting each cup with a rich crema espresso. I love how the HiLine coffees are named after different NYC neighborhoods and how the varieties are described on the back of each box. We found the descriptions to be quite fitting. And you can bet that each of us tried each and every kind of coffee. We were buzzin’ for a few days. Truly.

My favorite, and my sister’s favorite, turned out to be the Broadway dark roast espresso. It’s bold and full bodied, with a medium acidity. And coming in second for the both of us is the Liberty. (pictured top left)

My husband and brother-in-law favored the Wall Street, described as “for movers, shakers and troublemakers” and Times Square coffees, both very bold and full-bodied, with plenty of get-up-and-go! (pictured lower right)

For those times when you’re looking for a more relaxing and lighter roast, the SoHo and Chelsea are the way to go (pictured lower left). Chelsea turned out to be the overwhelming favorite for an afternoon cup of espresso that could be enjoyed by everyone in our group. My dad likened his cup of Chelsea to what is known as “the best cup of coffee in town” from his area.
