    Cape Town Envivo Lungo Review

    The new 2021 blend for the classic Envivo Lungo that looks at Cape Town as inspiration for its renewed taste profile. Dark brown foam. Not a coffee with an intense aroma.

    Envivo Lungo review

    Origin: dark roasted, washed, Robusta from Mexico along with Arabica from India. Intensity: 9 Bitterness: 4 Acidity: 1 Body: 4 Roasting: 4 Order: Buy Envivo Lungo capsules at Amazon Dark brown foam. Delightful roasted/woody aroma. A low acidity and medium bodied cup. Woody and cocoa flavours predominant, with bitterness that is at first balanced but more pronounced in the aftertaste. Some gingerbread can be discerned but we personally barely found it. A strong, dark roast with a wood/cocoa skew, for a medium cup.
