Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso produced as a ristretto 25ml (.85-ounce) shot using a Nespresso capsule espresso brewer with whole milk heated using a conventional steam wand. Delicate, savory-sweet. Fresh-cut cedar, a hint of chocolate, orange zest, lily-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate and cedar linger in a gently drying finish. A lightly-stated, slightly savory chocolate dominates in three parts milk.

Notes:

This coffee is Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price; it is also certified EU and USDA Organic. Produced in Europe by Gourmesso in partnership with the Munich-based San Francisco Coffee Company. Visit www.gourmesso.com or email service@gourmesso.com for more information.

The Bottom Line: A crisp, gentle espresso with Fair Trade credentials and a value price point for Nespresso owners.
