Nespresso Blends - a comprehensive spreadsheet

As a faithful Nespresso user, I was a bit shocked last month when I discovered one of my favourite blends contained Robusta. I had always assumed all blends were 100% Arabica and alas, that was not the case. So I started looking up what is what, but I was quickly overwhelmed - I wasn't going to browse through 24 pages of slow-loading images to read all blurbs. Enter Python.

As it often happens, the situation degenerated quickly. The result is an Excel spreadsheet (also available in Google Docs), listing all attributes of all blends so that you can filter out what you need. Decaffeinated varieties are highlighted, because that's not real coffee 😁
