Light brown foam. Intense aroma of hazelnuts, as expected. Clearly smelled from afar, yet less from close up. Both a sweet and roasted aroma. It is very resembling of a sweetened hazelnut cream.
At the taste it is much less sweet, but maintaining the roasting notes in full. With a medium body, it is a pod possessing a hint of acidity and sweetness throughout the tasting process. Weak aftertaste, primarily of medium roasted hazelnuts.
There are few proper coffee notes, the hazelnut flavoring overpowers them. The taste profile is therefore dominated by hazelnut, with secondary almond, light milk, cereals, and pepper notes.
Long-lasting crema. Quite low intensity, very gentle coffee.
Infiniment Gourmand works best as an espresso or ristretto. As a lungo it can feel watered down. It is a great pod to add hazelnut notes to a milk-based drink like a latte or cappuccino. Sweet and warm, a coffee for any sweet moment of the day, and a good base for dessert preparations.
