    Nocciola Review

    Light brown foam. Intense hazelnuts aroma, completely overpowering any typical coffee smell. A pod with a medium body, and medium roasted, with average intensity. It is very creamy, with a velvety mouthfeel. Rather dry and mostly acidic and bitter, in mostly equal parts when the coffee is hot. It possesses some sweetness, showing qualities of a sweetened hazelnuts spread. The hazelnut flavoring clearly dominates the taste profile, but notes of cereals, biscuits, ripe banana, and licorice can be tasted as well. While the top of this coffee is mainly dry and velvety, the bottom has a peculiar oily mouthfeel. It feels as two different coffee layered on top of each…

    Infiniment Gourmand Review

    A festive limited edition from 2022, born of a collaboration between Nespresso and Pierre Hermé. Light brown foam. Intense aroma of hazelnuts, as expected.

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.

    Italia Torta di Nocciole review

    Light brown foam. Cereals, almonds and nutty aroma, intense and very sweet overall. At the first taste it’s an extremely dry cup when hot. Somewhat of a bitter aftertaste, very heavily leaning towards hazelnuts and walnuts. Thick crema, medium body. The tasting experience is much less sweet than the aroma, quite balanced instead between bitterness and sweetness. The roasted flavor, a bit salty in the aftertaste, covers most of the other flavors, among which the primary ones are hazelnuts, vanilla, walnuts and cereals. No acidity at all at high temperatures, only noticeable at medium-low ones. Blueberries-like acidity. The crema is long lasting. A medium roasted, intense and deliciously smelling capsule.
