Nespresso®* Linizio Lungo

The single-serve coffee industry has grown in popularity year after year all over the world, with several different types of machines that have made it increasingly easy to brew your own single-serve coffees or espressos. However, even if you do not live in an urban area where exclusive boutiques offer Nespresso®* blends, you can still have your gourmet latte or coffee drink in the comfort of your own home with more than 20 Nespresso®* varieties.

The Nespresso®* Linizio Lungo

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.

For a similar experience, try Gourmesso's Lungo Latino Mezzo, which is made of a similarly mild blend of Arabicas with the unique addition of a Vietnamese Robusta that results in a perfect flavor profile with fruity notes and a very rich crema. Should you be looking for a little more variety we recommend the Gourmesso Bundles. Offering 10 different blends and varying intensity levels from 3-10, the Trial Bundle Small is the perfect starter kit for Gourmesso novices.
