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

    Turin, Italy
  • Espresso Delicato Rivo Pack

Roast: Medium 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. Soft, simple, chocolaty. Distinct chocolate, hints of orange and cedar in aroma and small cup. Smooth, slightly lean mouthfeel. Flavor fades in the short finish, but a pleasant hint of chocolate revives in the long. Delicate in three parts milk with the chocolate sensation showing some richness and hints of complexity.

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

Who Should Drink It: A pleasant, chocolate-toned straight shot and short-milk espresso.
