Packaging

The aluminium capsules with ‘Indonesia’ sign are packaged in the typical sleek Nespresso box. You can easily recycle them either via the Nespresso collecting scheme or in your metal refuse. Just empty the used capsules onto your compost beforehand. Nespresso describes this coffee as highly aromatic, with rich notes of tobacco leaves and green wood. The intensity rating is 8 out of 12.

Notes

This single-origin coffee from Indonesia uses the wet-hull processing method typical of the region. This method, which dries the coffee beans in two stages and strips them of their parchment, gives coffee robustness and complexity. These qualities can be certainly found in the aromas of Master Origin Indonesia. However, the dominant bitterness on the palate masks most of the subtle notes in the taste.
