• Nespresso Long Black Over Ice

    Long Black Over Ice review

    Origin: Ethiopia and Peru coffee Intensity: 5 Order: Buy Long Black Over Ice capsules A 2019 Summer Limited Edition. Light brown foam. Pleasurably roasted smell, pronounced. Medium-strong body, with a thick and persistent crema. An acidic cup, just a bit bitter. Hints of chocolate can be discerned but not above the citric, fruity ones. A fresh, velvety cup overall, with the acidity very noticeable throughout the tasting. To be tasted cold as Nespresso suggests, which makes the acidity and fruity notes overcoming the other flavours and hints.

  • Nespresso Flat White Over Ice

    Flat White Over Ice review

    Origin: A blend of Ethiopian and Indian coffees Intensity: 5 Order: Buy Flat White Over Ice capsules A 2019 Summer Limited Edition. Light brown foam. Sweet and aromatic aroma, resembling malt and spices. Slightly on the bitter side but not too much as to be classified as a bitter capsule. Quite acidic and spicy, punching through the milk and enabling to taste it regardless of the amount of milk added. A thin bodied cup, with a strong leaning towards spicy and malty flavours. Probably not possible to drink it as black coffee as the taste would be quite unlikeable.

    How Long Do Nespresso Capsules Last?

    One of the most common questions about the durability, and safety, of the Nespresso capsules is: how long do capsules last? Is there any expiration date? Is it safe to drink them afterwards? Short answer, yes, there’s an expiration date and it’s reported on the package of every Nespresso capsule. Yet you can brew them even a long time after that date. Coffee is not subject to a dangerous deterioration like most other foods and the capsules especially are airtight, preventing microbes and fungi to grow. The Nespresso capsules can be safely drank even many months after you bought them, even years. There are no health risks involved in drinking…

  • Nespresso Rosabaya de Colombia

    Rosabaya de Colombia review

    Origin: 100% Arabica coffee from Colombia Intensity: 6 Order: Buy Rosabaya de Colombia capsules A Pure Origin capsule discontinued in favour of Master Origin Colombia. Medium brown foam, nearly copper. Sweet, fruity aroma. Quite acidic, with a subdued bitterness. A medium cup, with a not very noticeable crema. At lower temperatures it’s well balanced, acidity becomes less dominant but bitterness doesn’t increase. A fruity, velvet-y, nearly wine-like cup of coffee. Easy on the palate, medium/low intensity (more a 4 than a 6 as claimed).

  • Nespresso Barista Scuro

    Barista Scuro review

    Origin: Arabica coffee from Colombia and Ethiopia Intensity: 8 Bitterness: 3 Roasting: 2 Order: Buy Barista Scuro capsules A 2017-2019 Barista Limited Edition. Brown foam. Nice aroma, just slightly burnt. Quite acidic, especially at first, but not much bitter to be tasted. Good intensity, with a medium, oily, body. Very well balanced aromatic profile overall, with no flavour being more noticeable than any other. A tiny hint of sweetness can be savoured at lower temperatures. With milk at first retains mostly the bitterness, which instead subsides at lower temperatures. Acidity dissipates. A very well balanced cup also with milk.
