The Nespresso®* Dharkan

Nespresso®* is a premium coffee company based in Switzerland. A Nespresso®* machine is an espresso maker that uses single use capsules filled with coffee and different flavors from around the globe. Eric Favre, the inventor of Nespresso®*, patented and introduced the system in 1976. Upon introduction the idea was not hugely popular and it wasn't until 1988 that the Nespresso®* machine became a success.

The Nespresso®* Dharkan

The Nespresso®* Dharkan is second among the two most intense and rich Nespresso®* varieties. Similar to the Kazaar blend, the Nespresso®* Dharkan goes above and beyond the Nespresso®* intensity scale of 1-10, coming in at an 11. This rich, savory, and unforgettable blend has been raved about since it's release, and continues to be one of the best selling. Similar to the Kazaar blend, the Dhakar is one of the best selling Nespresso®* varieties.

For a Nespresso®* Dharkan review it is important to focus on the unique ways this coffee is harvested, washed, and roasted. These different steps create an espresso that expresses itself in a silky, velvety texture. It takes its character from Latin America, and Asia and its intense flavor reveals itself with hints of cocoa powder, toasted cereal and heavy roasted notes. This espresso is roasted slowly at a low temperature, giving it an exquisite personality. There are very distinct notes of a bitter cocoa powder along with toasted cereal.

The blend is made up of finely selected Arabica beans from Latin America and Asia. These coffee beans are washed and then undergo a long roasting process at a low temperature to bring out an astonishingly smooth intensity. This roasting process creates and unveils an irresistible velvety-smoothness to the finished espresso. The choice of coffee beans is also what puts the Nespresso®* Dharkan blend so high on the intensity scale.
