    Vanilla Eclair review

    Light brown foam. Very sweet aroma, clearly with vanilla qualities merging with a delicate roastiness. A dry cup, barely any acidity. Lightly roasted, medium body. Neither particularly sweet nor bitter at first, but more prominently sweet at medium to low temperatures. A mix of vanilla, cereals, biscuit-like and almond flavors. Overall a well-round, smooth cup, with an aromatic profile that it’s more than just of vanilla, as the name of the capsule would imply.

    Vanilio Review

    Light brown foam. The aroma of vanilla is strong and immediately recognizable. Biscuits notes underlines it. Quite a dry coffee, with bitterness and some acidity in the aftertaste. Acidity more prominent at low temperatures. A light-medium bodied pod, it distinctly works better as a ristretto as it may result being watery in longer cups. Not sweet, the vanilla flavoring is dominating, overcoming nearly completely the Livanto‘s malt and cereal notes. Moderately bitter and of average intensity, Vanilio greatly benefits from added sugar or a splash of milk as they can accentuate the vanilla flavor and mitigate the bitterness. A gentle cup of coffee, not flavorful but strong in vanilla notes.
