The Nespresso Roma - What makes it so special?

The Roma is one of Nespresso's most popular and promising flavor. The Nespresso Roma consists of lightly roasted South and Central American Arabica beans with Robusta. This gives Roma sweet and woody notes and a full lasting taste to your palate. The beans that make up the Nespresso Roma are Arabica and Robusta sourced from South America. The coffee beans then go through a light roasting process that brings out a sweet and woody note that lingers perfectly. The smooth auburn capsule of the Nespresso Roma helps bring out that woody flavor, and its warm color embodies the fullness of this espresso.

Roma by Nespresso - How to drink it?

The Nespresso Roma can be made either as an espresso, a ristretto, or even a lungo/Americano, if you’re looking for a more mild cup of espresso. When the Roma is prepared as an espresso there are mildly sweet and chocolaty aromas, which are bittersweet at first, and finish on a woody note. When prepared as a ristretto there is a more pronounced chocolate aftertaste and brighter acidity. The review of this Nespresso points out that when prepared as a ristretto, the note kind of gets lost in the sea of flavors available.

Toasty and woody hints reach up through the light roasting of this intensely flavored mix of beans from distinct origins. This warm intensity is also what makes the Roma great for a cappuccino. Another great way to top off a shot of Roma is with a light sprinkle of sugar, to add just a subtle touch of sweetness.
