- Roasting: 4
- Acidity: 2
- Bitterness: 3
- Body: 3
The new version of the classic Fortissio Lungo, inspired by the coffee culture of Stockholm. Another capsule part of the new World Explorations range.
Brown foam. a moderate aroma of hazelnuts, malted cereals, delicate. The aspect of the coffee is of a dark roasted one but the smell is more subdued.
Quite more dark roasted at the taste, with cocoa, malted cereals and nutty flavors reigning over any others. Moderately bitter when hot. A low-key acidity appears among the bitterness, slightly more noticeable at lower temperatures yet remaining in the background. Medium/heavy body, leaning towards the intense end of the Nespresso’s line.
Roasty and moderately dry, at low temperatures the bitterness becomes more filling, covering any side of the palate, leaving a pleasant mouthfeel. Not much sweetness to be savored.
Good lasting crema. The finer aromatics of the Colombian Arabica beans highlight with their acidity an otherwise intense and dark-only coffee. Definitely the Monsooned Malabar beans have the upper hand, for a capsule that is firstly potent, yet without having an extreme taste profile. A dark coffee that can be appreciated by those who aren’t great fans of the darker roasts thanks to the softening of the Colombian beans.
