Perfect coffee is no coincidence. Which means we push the boundaries uncompromisingly at every step of the long value chain from tree to cup, deliberately creating our Nespresso Coffee for your pleasure.
Where Nespresso Coffees come from?
POWERFUL AND CONTRASTING COFFEE
Strong in flavour and body, Ristretto combines the best South American Arabicas, from countries such as Colombia and Brazil, with great East African Arabicas, famous for their citrus aromas with a touch of Robusta for added zing. The slow split roasting of the beans creates a contrasting bouquet, bringing together subtle fruity and acid notes, with intensely roasted and chocolate ones.
LONG ROASTED AND VELVETY COFFEE
This blend of washed Arabicas from Latin America and Asia fully unveils its character thanks to the technique of long roasting at a low temperature. Its powerful personality reveals intense roasted notes together with hints of bitter cocoa powder and toasted cereals that express themselves in a silky and velvety texture. In cup it creates a subtle balance and a pleasant bitterness that lingers in the mouth.
EXCEPTIONALLY INTENSE AND SYRUPY
A daring blend including Robustas from Brazil and Guatemala, specially prepared for Nespresso, and a separately roasted Arabica from South America, Kazaar is a coffee of exceptional intensity. That full bodied Ristretto is rich in roasted notes. In cup it develops a powerful bitterness and notes of pepper that are balanced by a dense and creamy texture.
INTENSE AND CREAMY COFFEE
Arpeggio takes its distinctive character and full body from a blend of Central and South American Arabicas. The long roasting allows each aspect to develop into an intense bouquet, combining cocoa and roasted notes.
FULL AND BALANCED COFFEE
A subtle balance between strength, finesse and fullness, Roma sets itself apart by its woody and roasted notes. Central and South American Arabicas combined with Robusta have been lightly roasted to preserve the delicate aroma of the blend. Roma is the ideal coffee for those looking for an Espresso that is both short and mild.
ROUND AND BALANCED COFFEE
This blend of Central and South American Arabicas is medium roast to bring out a round and very balanced bouquet. It evokes the scent of freshly toasted coffee escaping from the roaster: roasted and caramelised notes.
MILD AND DELICATELY TOASTED COFFEE
A blend of East African, Central and South American Arabicas which has been lightly roasted to preserve the fragile citrus note that creates the personality of Cosi. This very refreshing lemony note develops on a light body.
SWEET AND LIGHT COFFEE
Delightfully scented, Volluto has a round body, with sweet biscuit and light fruit notes. A combination of Brazilian and Colombian Arabicas, its light roast allows all the finesse of this coffee to be expressed.
RICH AND DISTINCTIVE COFFEE
Capriccio is an Espresso with a balanced bouquet, a light acidity and a very characteristic cereal note. It is composed of Arabicas from South America including Brazil, in ideal proportions, and a touch of lightly roasted Robusta.
FRUITY AND VIBRANT
Master Origin Colombia with Late Harvest Arabica uses only high-grown, washed processed Colombian Arabica. Can you taste the lively acidity and the burst of winey red fruit aromas? That comes from those coffee farmers who dared to wait longer before harvesting their crop.
FLOWERY AND BRIGHT
This is Ethiopian Arabica at its finest - decadently aromatic. It has an orange blossom aroma, but the rich fruit jam notes come from the sun-dried coffee in Master Origin Ethiopia with dry processed Arabica. Continually hand-turning the coffee cherry to ensure even drying calls for great care. And Ethiopian farmers have used this method for longer than anyone else.
SWEET AND HARMONIOUS
If Black Honey processing were the easy road to a nectarous coffee, they’d all do it. But only a few farmers dare. It’s a rare process because it calls for meticulous monitoring. Master Origin Nicaragua with ‘Black-Honey’ processed Arabica contains this coffee. It gives this Nicaraguan Arabica its smooth honeyed texture and sweet cereal notes.
INTENSE AND SPICY
Master Origin India with Robusta Monsoon gets its intense, woody, spicy aromatics from the monsooned Robusta blended into Indian Arabica. Monsooning coffees is unique to India’s southwest coast. Months of monsoonal winds repeatedly swell and dry the beans. It mimics the journey it used to take when sailing to Europe.
RICH AND WOODY
Master Origin Indonesia with wet-hulled Arabica is a race against rain. Sumatran farmers wet-hull their coffee because of the humid climate. They remove the parchment when the coffee is soft and moist because exposed beans dry faster. The method is unique to them and produces the classic Indonesian taste - velvety thick, wildly aromatic, notes of cured tobacco.
RICH AND FULL-BODIED COFFEE
As in the age of sailing ships, Indian Malabar Arabica beans are exposed to monsoon winds after harvest to reveal a distinguished aromatic profile. We blend these with Latin American Arabica beans to create a Lungo with a truly intense character. This full-bodied Lungo, rich in aroma, expresses itself in beautiful sweet cereal and malty toasted notes, and it offers a pleasant bitterness with an exquisite fullness on the palate thanks to its round and smooth texture.
COMPLEX AND BALANCED COFFEE
A complex yet balanced marriage between South American Arabicas cultivated at high altitude, among which “Cerrado” from Brazil, and an East African Arabica. Vivalto Lungo combines roasted and subtle floral notes. Split roasting of the beans enhances the character of each origin.
POTENT AND CARAMELIZED COFFEE
Envivo Lungo was specially designed for the morning by Nespresso Coffee Experts. It is a long-cup that stimulates the senses through its high intensity and generous character. This dark roasted coffee is a blend of a distinctive Arabica from India with a Robusta from Mexico. In cup, it reveals a bold character and a full body, roasted notes and rich scents reminiscent of aromatic woods and gingerbread.
ROUND AND SMOOTH COFFEE
Pure Arabica from South America, Linizio Lungo is a well-rounded blend made of Brazilian and Colombian coffee. The split-roasting gives a cereal, malty note typical for the Bourbon variety, while maintaining its mild and smooth character.
POWERFUL AND CONTRASTING COFFEE
Intensely roasted and rich in flavour, Ristretto Decaffeinato has the same powerful character and contrasting taste as the original Ristretto. A selection of the best Latin American and East African Arabicas is sophisticatedly blended with a touch of Robusta, roasted separately to create the subtle fruity note of this full bodied, intense Espresso.
Vivalto lungo decaffeinato
COMPLEX AND BALANCED COFFEE
A complex yet balanced blend, Vivalto Lungo Decaffeinato has the same rich character as the original Vivalto Lungo coffee: roasted, lightly woody with sweet cereal and subtle floral notes. It is a pure Arabica blend from several origins including South America and East Africa. The aromatic profile of these coffees is carefully preserved during the decaffeination process, which respects the coffee bean’s true nature, allowing us to maintain the strength and richness of its aromas.
SWEET AND LIGHT COFFEE
Delightfully sweet and smooth, Volluto Decaffeinato has the same rich flavours and round body as the original Volluto coffee. The selected pure Arabica beans from South America are roasted lightly and separately to highlight their specificities and reveal the sweet biscuity, fresh and fruity notes. The aromatic profile of these coffees is carefully preserved during the decaffeination process, which respects the coffee bean’s true nature, allowing us to maintain the strength and richness of its aromas.
CHOCOLATE FLAVOURED COFFEE
Ciocattino is a coffee elaborated on a base of Livanto coffee, a blend of Arabicas from South and Central America with a round and very balanced bouquet. The dark and bitter chocolate notes create an indulgent harmony with the roasted notes of the Livanto coffee. A rich combination reminiscent of a square of dark chocolate.
CARAMEL FLAVOURED COFFEE
Caramelito is a coffee elaborated on a base of Livanto coffee, a blend of Arabicas from South and Central America with a round and very balanced bouquet. The sweet flavour of caramel softens the roasted notes. This delicate gourmet marriage evokes the creaminess of soft toffee.
VANILLA FLAVOURED COFFEE
Vanilio is a coffee elaborated on a base of Livanto coffee, a blend of Arabicas from South and Central America with a round and very balanced bouquet. The rich and velvety aromas of vanilla subtly express themselves in a mellow texture. A blend distinguished by its full flavour, infinitely smooth and silky on the palate.
Only the best conditions and the most proper environment lead to the perfect cup of coffee.
