Roast: Medium Review Date: July 2013
Origin: East Africa; Central and South America. Price: $6.50/10 capsultes

Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso produced in the Nespresso-recommended standard 40ml (1.35-ounce) shot by a Nespresso capsule espresso brewer and with whole milk heated using a conventional steam wand. Sweet-toned, with distinct floral and fruit – mango, apricot – notes in aroma and small cup. Very lightly syrupy mouthfeel; the finish is sweet, clean, simple. Fades a bit in three parts milk, though a delicate floral-toned chocolate persists.

Notes: This espresso was produced in Switzerland for the Nespresso capsule espresso system. The Nespresso line offers sixteen different non-flavored blend capsules, twelve designed for espresso brewing and four intended to produce Northern-European-style long black or "lungo" (four-ounce) servings. The Nespresso capsules are coded by color and presented in boxes arrayed like precious bonbons, glowing in their contrasting matte-aluminum finishes. Nespresso is a brand and separate business unit of the Swiss-based Nestlé Corporation. Visit or call 800-562-1465 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A lively, cleanly refreshing straight shot for Nespresso owners; fades in longer milk but should show nicely with short milk in an espresso macchiato, for example.
