- Intensity: 4
- Roasting: 1
- Acidity: 2
- Bitterness: 1
- Body: 1
The new capsule in the World Explorations line, inspired by the coffee culture of Buenos Aires.
Light brown crema. Sweet, clearly cereals-like, aroma. The smell has a good intensity too. A hint of spices, cardamom and nutmeg primarily, can be found within the aroma.
Quite a dry coffee at the first sip, with a bitter aftertaste. Thin body, low intensity. A mellow coffee for sure.
Dark cocoa flavors are the main source of bitterness, which can then clearly be considered a pleasant type of bitterness. Acidity comes out only at low temperatures. A soft, pleasing, roasty component becomes more noticeable as the coffee cools down.
The lack of body makes us think of a very low Robusta to Arabica ratio. Sweet, yet not overtly so, as this sweetness is not fruit-like but possessing only cereals qualities.
Quite thick and long lasting crema. Larger amounts of acidity, like of raspberries, can be tasted in this coffee when brewed in shorter quantities, like as an espresso. A mellow, easy to drink, gentle cup of coffee.
