The new 2021 version, inspired by Tokyo and Japan coffee culture, of the classic Vivalto Lungo capsule.
Very light brown crema, nearly white. Thick and decidedly bubbly. A coffee with a clear aroma of cereals and flowers, with jasmine being the prevalent one.
Medium-low intensity, with a thin body. A delicate floral-based blend, with a basic bitterness and acidity at high temperatures. A pleasing roastiness element comes up as the coffee cools down.
Barely bitter overall, with a slightly more pronounced acidity, sign of a light-medium roasting and Arabica beans. Cereals, perhaps some biscuits, flavors on one side pairs well with the mellow floral flavors on the other side. A coffee with a feeble aftertaste, where the bitterness and roastiness are more noticeable.
Definitely leaning towards the bitterness more when brewed in smaller quantities. As an espresso it becomes a much darker cup of coffee, where the floral flavors take the backseat and the coffee feels decidedly more intense.
Overall a refined blend, where the Ethiopian and Mexican Arabica beans merge well together, showing some of the best qualities of both origins. A delicate, classy, and relaxing coffee.
