The Nespresso®* Fortissio Lungo

Historically, espresso has been a drink that required much preparation for a short amount of pleasure. Today, thanks to Nespresso®*, that isn't the case at all; a cup of Nespresso®* Fortissio Lungo is a couple of minutes away with one of their machines. These sleek, Swiss engineered machines are able to produce a cup of espresso in a short time with many Nespresso®* varieties that equal any European Café.

Nespresso®* Fortissio Lungo

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®* Foritssio 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. 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.

The Gourmesso Lungo Arabica Forte has the same intensity and flavor as the Nespresso®* Fortissio Lungo but at a considerable savings to what Nespresso®* charges for their pods.
