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.
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
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.
