Caramel Creme Brulee

Caramel Crème Brûlée review

Light brown foam. Strong aroma of caramel, with hints of sweetened eggs, like in a proper crème brûlée.

Quite burnt taste at first but not bitter. Not an unpleasant type of burnt. Low intensity and practically no acidity. Taste is less sweet than the aroma, with notes of vanilla and coconut.

The actual flavour of crème brûlée comes out only at low or medium temperatures, making it a capsule to not be drank very hot. Medium bodied. Average intensity for a medium roasted cup of coffee.

If you liked it, please share!

    I definitely preferred the caramelito over Creme Brulee. Unlike you, I found that “burnt” taste quite bitter, and after the first sip flavors mellowed to a point that you were wishing for more. I will try again with your suggestion of letting it drink warm or low temp, maybe that will change my opinion.

      You can surely consider “burnt” as “bitter”. Bitterness is a component of being “burnt”. I used “burnt” because it more similar to the burnt parts of a toast or of a creme caramel, so not just “bitter” but a bit more complex. It’s a subtle difference 🙂
