The aroma of this single-origin Brazilian coffee is mellow, sweet and fruity. Its creamy, butter-cookies sweetness and a touch of walnuts in caramel are nicely complemented by plum jam and a hint of cocoa.
On the palate, this espresso is pleasantly intense, creamy yet refreshing. Its fruitiness brings to mind baked apples and stewed red berries with a dash of salty caramel on the top. A pleasant cocoa bitterness appears after the fruity notes. All is finished by long-lasting, toffee aftertaste.
The extraction is slow and steady. The resulting crema is rich.
The brightly coloured capsules of Colonna Foundation edition come neatly packed in a modern, minimalist box. The capsules are fully aluminium and can be recycled when disposed of in metal refuse. Alternatively, you may use recycling schemes, such as that offered by Nespresso. Colonna tells us to look for notes of dates, cocoa and hazelnuts in this coffee.
