Light brown foam. Sweet and delicate aroma of cereals and milk. Roasty notes are also prominent, making it a coffee with a very “breakfast-like” aroma.
A light roasted pod, with a spumous crema that is quite persisting. A bit of acidity and bitterness that mix together equally. Gradually more acidic as the coffee cools down, which can make the acidity harsher, like grapefruits, rather than a gentler milk-like acidity.
Weak aftertaste. Medium-low intensity. Quite a milky pod, with flavors and characteristics that remember a macchiato coffee.
Overall a well rounded cup, where notes of cereals, milk and a caramel-like sweetness nicely blend together.
Light enough to be a good base for milk-based coffee or for flavoring it with syrups without losing the coffee element. It is easy to see why Livanto is used as the starting coffee for flavored pods by Nespresso.
A smooth and light cup of coffee.
