- Amazingly bold and balanced flavor
- Fast shipping and excellent price
- Makes an excellent crema
Apart from a few damaged pods (due to shipping issues), nothing at all.
If you’re looking for serious coffee flavor, this is probably the Nespresso pod that you’ll want to start with – and for many, this is the place to end as well.
For a start, you’ll enjoy the smell of it brewing – and we can boil that (yes, we know, punny) right down to the intense roast and the finely ground beans.
Then you’ll spot the crema and wonder where this coffee was all your life; as the jolt kicks in, you’ll start swearing by it – and it’s not anywhere near the strongest in the line.
The taste is definitely full-bodied and rich, but with that creaminess you crave and not a hint of bitterness or acidity.
We love it as an espresso, but it’s a solid choice for a ristretto as well – and the flavor holds well enough if you’re more of a latte or cappuccino fan.
Pod type: Nespresso OriginalLine
Beans, roast, and origins: The beans are a combination of Central and South American Arabica, this coffee gets its intense flavor from intense roasting and very finely ground beans.
Flavor and aroma notes: While you’ll definitely taste the cocoa notes in this full-bodied coffee, it’s much deeper than that with woody notes and a serious “coffee robustness." And, the aroma is seriously addictive for anyone that can’t get enough of that quality coffee smell.
Price: You’ll pay $38 for a pack of 50 Arpeggio Nespresso pods which works out to 76 cents per pod. And, they’re available with Prime shipping which makes these one of the more reasonably priced Nespresso-branded capsules. You gotta love that.
