The Nespresso Linizio Lungo - What makes it so special?

The Nespresso Linizio Lungo is a popular roast due to its mild and well-rounded flavor that scores only a very mild 4 on the intensity scale. This rich and velvety blend combines the strong cereal and enhancing malts of multiple roasts in order to create a balanced, smooth aroma profile.

For the Nespresso Linizio Lungo, Nespresso starts with a darker Bourbon blend of beans from Brazil, which are washed, de-pulped, and dried in the sun with mucilage intact. They then meld that roast with Colombian Arabica beans that are fermented with mucilage and then washed to create a sweetness that evokes memories of sugar cane. The Nespresso Linizio Lungo blend uses split roasting to enhance both flavors, pairing the Bourbon’s cereal notes that result from a longer roast harmoniously with the softer notes of the Arabica’s lighter, shorter roast.

It has remained a popular blend since its launch in 2013 as part of Nespresso's permanent Grand Cru coffee range, and it was designed specifically for morning coffee drinkers, as the “inizio” refers to the start of the day. Even as a lungo, the Nespresso Linizio Lungo is quite mild, but maintains its flavor profile through the blending of unique roasts that together create a stimulating coffee drinking experience.

Linizio Lungo Nespresso - How to drink it?

A Nespresso Linizio review highlights this lungo as very smooth, feeling light with a stronger after-taste coffee. On one hand, longer roasting yields a darker bean that reveals the malted cereal notes of the Bourbon beans. On the other hand, shorter roasting of the Arabica from Colombia yields lighter beans and highlights the softer notes reminding of sugar cane, specific to its region of origin. As consequence, Nespresso Linizio results in a coffee best enjoyed in a large cup as a Lungo.
