Espresso Intenso by Lavazza for Keurig Rivo |
  • Lavazza for the Rivo system

    Turin, Italy
  • Espresso Intenso Rivo Pack

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2013
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $14.99/18 capsules

Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso produced in a 40ml/1.35-ounce shot by the Rivo capsule espresso brewer with whole milk heated separately using a conventional steam wand. Plum, dark chocolate, gently scorched wood in aroma and cup. The roasty fruit shows a slightly salty tendency in the cup, but sweetens again in a pleasant finish. Roundly chocolaty in three parts milk, though with a continued dry, woody edge.

Notes: This all-arabica blend was produced and put in capsules by the Italian roaster Lavazza expressly for the Keurig Rivo capsule espresso system. It is one of three non-decaf capsules or packs available for the Rivo system. Visit for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy darker roasted espressos. Should stand up to sweetener and longer milk.
