    Origin: a flavoured coffee inspired from the norwegian Kvæfjordkake, based off Livanto Intensity: 6 Bitterness: 3 Acidity: 3 Body: 3 Roasting: 3 Order: Buy Nordic Almond Cake capsules at Amazon A Nordic Variations Limited Edition from 2019. Light brown foam. Sweet aroma, of a good intensity. Very much almond-like. A medium-heavy cup, with hints of cereals and meringue mixed with some bitterness. Low acidity. Closely resembling a more subtle version of the Macaron limited edition. A blend of cream, meringue and almond flavours over the Livanto base. Delicate and flavourful.
