The Nespresso Arpeggio - What makes it so special?

The Nespresso Arpeggio is designed to provide an extremely aromatic texture, with several notes of cocoa and a rather intense, lingering smell. The dark roast, which is produced from South and Central American Arabica coffee beans provides you with an interesting option, if you are looking for a heavy, intense flavor. The name Arpeggio comes from an Italian musical term, where several cords are played right after another. The flavors and aromas of the Arpeggio do exactly this, as you experience multiple flavor sensations and smells, one right after the previous one to give you a truly unique coffee experience.

The purple-colored Nespresso Arpeggio is part of the Intenso section of capsules by Nespresso, and has been part of the original Grand Crus since the Nespresso varieties were introduced. In a survey conducted in 2013 by Nespresso, they found that the Arpeggio was the most beloved flavor out of all of the OriginalLine Grand Crus.

Arpeggio by Nespresso - How to drink it?

The Nespresso Arpeggio can be made either as an espresso, but its also quite common to use it in Cappuccinos or Macchiatos, due to its velvety, floral flavor that is light in cocoa aroma. In this case, if you want a blonder roast this one isn't as dark as others but still holds up with milk well.
