Aroma

The aroma of Sontuoso is pleasantly intense, well-balanced and sweet. This sweetness has many layers from crème caramel through milk chocolate and cereals to the cherry cake. Balancing touch comes from the fruity acidity of sour cherries and cranberries. A hint of amaretto reveals the dark roasting.

Taste

On the palate, Sontuoso opens up with the intense bitterness of herbal liqueur. With another sip, this bitterness mellows into dark-cocoa tones but continues to dominate. A hint of sour-cherry acidity brings some balance, but the taste is not as smooth as the aroma. The aftertaste is long and bitter.

Extraction

The extraction process is flawless, producing tall crema.

Our rating

The intensity rating is 8.

Notes

Sontuoso by L’Or Espresso is well-done, intense yet balanced, darkly roasted coffee which offers similar characteristics as Arpeggio or Arabica Ethiopia Harrar from Nespresso.
