Notes

Roma by Nespresso contains a blend of Robusta and Arabica coffee from South and Central Americas. The beans are roasted to a not-too-dark standard, delivering a very good balance between the intensity, bitterness and complexity. Roma is thus a great example of well-balanced Italian-style espresso, similar to its sister edition Ristretto, or Armonioso by Pellini Espresso and Forza by L’Or Espresso.
