The Nespresso Fortissio Lungo - What makes it so special?

A very popular blend of the Grand Cru Lungo is Nespresso Fortissio Lungo. Lungo means “long” in Italian and it refers to the process of using twice as much water to make a cup of espresso. This method produces a cup of espresso that is more aromatic and a little more bitter.

The Nespresso Fortissio Lungo is a favorite of people looking for a definite coffee experience but who don't want to be overwhelmed by too intense flavor. While being made of the finest Arabica beans available this coffee will definitely create a longer more pleasurable drinking experience for the most discerning coffee drinker.

A Nespresso Fortissio Lungo review highlights the blends South and Central American Arabica beans with an addition of Robusta. This special coffee carries a strong aroma of dark beans that might make you think of a strong (maybe too strong) cup of coffee. The Nespresso Fortissio Lungo offers malty hints, with sweet notes of cereal that finish bold and smooth.

Nespresso Fortissio Lungo - How to drink it?

Actually, the intensity of this blend is only rated at a 7. You might find this powerful but its doubtful you'll be overwhelmed. This coffee is perfectly combined with strong foods because it won't be overpowered by the tastes of the meal. It also makes a great after dinner coffee especially if the dinner was full of sharp or strong flavors.

Its aromatic profile highlights a full body and bitter base that supports the aroma of intensely roasted beans, along with woody notes, and the typical cereal note that comes from the Robusta. The choice for individuals who prefer their coffee strong is clearly the Nespresso Fortissio and its usually prepared as a Lungo but it also works well as an Espresso.
