OVER-EXTRACTION: cup size is critical as too much water through too few grounds results in unbalanced flavour extraction.

The taste of a Grand Cru depends on its blend composition and terroir.

ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE

A TERROIR

At Nespresso, we define intensity as being a combination of roastiness, body and bitterness, not caffeine content.


Like the bitterness, the body and the roastiness, the acidity is one parameter that allows us to describe the taste.

Altitude

Soil Composition

Climate Temperature, exposure to sun/rainfall, humidity, etc.

INTENSITY

Intensity results from the combination of:

Body

Coffee fullness or weight in the mouth. A coffee with body is thick and dense, whereas a light-bodied coffee is perceived as watery, fluid

Bitterness

Think of dark chocolate, baking cocoa, aspirin, chicory. Coffee is bitter.

Roastiness

Perception of a coffee roast flavour, independant of the roast level.

At Nespresso, we define intensity as being a combination of roastiness, body and bitterness, not caffeine content.
Like the bitterness, the body and the roastiness, the acidity is one parameter that allows us to describe the taste.

AROMATIC NOTES

Dominant aromatic notes define the aromatic profile, the character of the Grand Cru, regardless of its intensity.

Aromatic notes are clustrered into 3 main families:

MILD


  • Flowery


  • Citrus


  • Fruity-winy

MILD


  • Honey


  • Cereals


  • Roasted

INTENSE


  • Cocoa


  • Spicy


  • Woody

  • Intensely

MILK RECIPES

Each coffee creates a unique alchemy with milk

Most people typically use intense espresso blends in their coffee drinks in the belief that the aroma of subtler blends will be diluted by the milk. Each Grand Cru, even with a delicate and subtle character when black, develops new dimensions when combined with milk.

The result ? This creates an almost infinite palette of taste variations starting from the same Grand Cru. Depending on which Grand Cru you use, a Cappuccino or Latte Macchiato can have many different, delicious flavours.

The coffee journey to perfection

The fruit of the Coffea Rubiaceae tree, coffee grows between the tropics of Capricorn and Cancer.

As with wine, great coffee draws its characteristics from its terroir: the result of harmony between soil, weather conditions, variety, aspect and altitude. We call the tree’s fruit a “cherry” for its luscious red colour when ripe and its cherry-like shape. As with any fruit, coffee tastes b 500
