    Indriya from India review

    Origin: a blend of Arabica and Robusta from Southern India Intensity: 10 Bitterness: 4 Acidity: 3 Body: 4 Roasting: 4 Order: Discontinued A Pure Origin capsule, now discontinued in favour of Master Origin India. Dark brown foam. A pleasurable freshly roasted aroma. Hints of nutmeg at first. Quite dry and heavy cup, with little acidity. Cocoa flavours prevail, with subtle hints of spiciness. The crema is persistent and remains thick till the end of the tasting. A bitter and strong cup overall, with a strong character.

    Rosabaya de Colombia review

    Origin: 100% Arabica coffee from Colombia Intensity: 6 Order: Buy Rosabaya de Colombia capsules A Pure Origin capsule discontinued in favour of Master Origin Colombia. Medium brown foam, nearly copper. Sweet, fruity aroma. Quite acidic, with a subdued bitterness. A medium cup, with a not very noticeable crema. At lower temperatures it’s well balanced, acidity becomes less dominant but bitterness doesn’t increase. A fruity, velvet-y, nearly wine-like cup of coffee. Easy on the palate, medium/low intensity (more a 4 than a 6 as claimed).

    Macaron review

    Origin: Arabica coffee from Central and South America Intensity: 6 Order: Buy Macaron Nespresso capsules A Festive Limited Edition from 2018. Brown foam. Very distinct smell of macarons, obscuring the coffee classic aroma. A dry, medium bodied and with high/medium acidity cup. Quite contrasting is the coffee bitterness, not very high but not a light roast even, with the macaron sweetness. Some almond can be discerned. Definitely works better with a teaspoon of sugar as it enhances the macaron flavour.

    Dulsão do Brasil review

    Origin: Pure Burbon coffee from southern Brazil Intensity: 4 Order: Buy Dulsão do Brasil capsules A Pure Origin capsule now discontinued. Light brown foam. Pleasurable coffee aroma, sweet. Medium acidity, peculiarly bitter at a first taste. Cereals, malt and some gingerbread flavours, with acidity increasing at lower temperatures while the bitterness subsides, making it a more balanced cup. Not very flavourful nor sweet overall, an easy and mellow cup.

    Praline review

    Origin: a blend of Central and Southern America Arabica coffee. Based off Livanto‘s blend. Intensity: 6 A Festive Limited Edition from 2018. Light brown foam. Distinct smell of almond. Sweeter smell than the actual taste though. In the mouth results quite dry. Low acidity. Sweet notes during the tasting, more like caramel with hazelnut than almond. It belongs to the same category of the strongly flavoured blends, Ciocattino, Vanilio and Caramelito.

    Café Venezia review

    Origin: Ethiopian Arabica from the Harrar region mixed with Indian Arabica coffee. Intensity: 7 A Limited Edition from 2018. Light brown foam. A slight, nutty/flowery smell. It gets closer to a cereals aroma when smelled more. Very dry at taste, but overall a smooth cup. Slightly bitter. Acid. During the tasting the flavours of fruit, flowers and cereals mix together to make it an interesting experience.

Sweet, biscuits-like aroma, not very pronounced. Quite acidic at the first taste, with woody notes. A bit sour too, not bitter.
