Fortissio Lungo coffee capsules are sold in sleeves of 10.
This Nespresso coffee capsule is an Arabica coffee blend. And what anchors Fortissio Lungo is the Monsooned Malabar. Back in the age of sailing ships, Indian coffees took on a wild ocean-air taste on their journey around the Cape of Good Hope. Today we recreate that mellowed acidity and full-bodied taste by warehousing the coffee for months along India’s southwestern coast.
The Monsooned Arabica gets a darker roast to enhance its body and cereal notes. A lighter roast of the washed Colombian coffee means all the classic finer aromatics stay in the balance of Fortissio Lungo. A very particular grind keeps this long black coffee smooth and rounded.
This Arabica coffee blend is as rich and deep as the metallic green Nespresso coffee capsule its housed in. The richness of the Fortissio Lungo pod is all in the balance of the coffee origins, their distinct processing methods, and the distinguished roasts.Sweet cereal and malty toasted notes lie beneath a spray of acidity and a lively bitterness in this Lungo coffee.
