Lavazza for the Rivo system
Espresso Intenso Rivo Pack
|Roaster Location:||Turin, Italy|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Est. Price:||$14.99/18 capsules|
|Review Date:||July 2013|
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 www.keurig.com for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy darker roasted espressos. Should stand up to sweetener and longer milk.
