Nespresso®* Ristretto

Ristretto is the Italian word for ‘limited’. A Ristretto espresso uses a limited amount of water - about half as much as is used for a standard espresso - for a very intense espresso. The drink is fuller and bolder than the regular espresso, and it’s also less bitter. Ristretto is clearly the choice for individuals who prefer their coffee strong and dark.

The Nespresso®* Ristretto uses a blend of South American and East African Arabica beans with separately roasted Robustas to give a fruity note in the espresso shot. Arabica beans are known to be the best coffee beans available as they have a bright, sophisticated flavor. The Nespresso®* Ristretto is intended to be drunk black, with just a dash of sugar to taste. This allows you to savor the intensity and full bodied nature of the coffee.

These are roasted separately to bring out their individually unique flavors.
