    Paris Espresso Review

    A Paris-inspired pod for espresso-based coffee. A limited edition belonging to the World Explorations line. Brown foam. Moderately intense aroma, consisting mainly of a cereals component, a bit of sandalwood, pepper and vague sweet notes. A mix of bitterness and acidity can be smelled too. Medium-low body. The mix of dark roasted bitterness and light acidity remain present at the taste. A low intensity pod. Quite nice acidity aftertaste, there’s no sweetness whatsoever though. The acidity isn’t much of a juicy, fruity type. Citrus-like but lacking the freshness of a true lemon juice. Instead, bitter, herbal notes hit the tongue while drinking Paris Espresso, making it feel stronger and bitter…

  • New World Explorations pods coming: Paris, Rio de Janeiro and Istanbul

    On the Malayan Nespresso website three new pods appeared, as can be seen at these links: Paris Espresso Istanbul Espresso Rio de Janeiro Espresso As with the recent Miami Espresso, these seems to be limited edition pods in the World Explorations line, inspired by the coffee culture of the relative named cities.

  • Nespresso Paris Black

    Paris Black Review

    A Limited Edition from 2018, inspired by the Parisian cafés and French roasts. Brown foam. Nice aroma, burnt and nutty. Medium body. Definitely bitter at first sip. Medium acidity throughout the tasting. Strong and bitter overall, trumping all other flavors, the most noticeable being pepper/spicy. A very dark roast and experience, closely resembling the one of French coffee houses.
