To create the dense richness of the new Fortissio Lungo Grand Cru, while yet maintaining balance, we chose specific coffees, rather than the roast level. An Indian Arabica called Monsooned Malabar and a Latin American coffee are split roasted in order to generate a prominent body yet retain a rich coffee flavour, not overshadowed by roasted notes.

In 2004, we introduced the Lungo range with Vivalto Lungo, being the first intense Lungo Grand Cru. By 2009, with more developed expertise in roasting styles, grinding, capsule loading and other technical aspects that bring out flavour, we created a truly intense Lungo, the first Fortissio Lungo Grand Cru.
In 2014, Nespresso expertise made it possible to redevelop and augment the intensity of Fortissio Lungo Grand Cru, yet not the roast level. We wanted to increase the complexity and boldness, the experience of coffee intensity in the cup, all without a darker roast.
Offering deep coffee flavour and full body in such a blend was made possible by the addition of a uniquely processed Indian bean, a Monsooned Malabar. These West Indian coffee beans are exposed to monsoon winds after harvest to recreate the conditions of the long sea journeys to Europe in the age of sailing ships, thus revealing a distinguished aromatic profile.
