Unexpectedly Thick and Dense

Try Intenso - a Vertuo coffee that’s dense and dark as night but glowing with golden brown sugar notes. It’s a blend of Guatemalan Washed Robusta coffee beans and Latin American Arabica. It’s thick with roasted notes and has a lingering finish. We split roast the Nespresso Intenso blend. The Guatemalan coffee gets a long roast to develop the Robusta coffee beans’ bold and bitter notes. The Arabicas get a shorter, dark roast to lower the acidity and bring out that brown sugar aroma. It’s an intense long black with a distinctly lingering aftertaste and a thick coffee crema.

With milk, Intenso keeps its full body and rich caramel note. Try Intenso as a Reverso - pour a dash of cold milk in your cup first, then extract Intenso on top and stir for a luxurious coffee with crema.

Origin
We chose the rare Washed Guatemalan Robusta for its typical cereal notes, its clean and smooth taste, and that unmissable intensity you get from Robusta coffee beans. This Vertuo coffee capsule also contains Arabica from Mexico and other Latin American countries. The Arabicas’ subtler aromatics blend smoothly with Guatemalan coffee.
Roasting
We split roast the Nespresso Intenso blend. The Guatemalan coffee gets a long roast - it develops the Robusta coffee beans’ bold and bitter notes. The Arabicas get a shorter, dark roast to lower the acidity and bring out that brown sugar aroma. The split roast and specific grind give Intenso its lingering aftertaste.
Aromatic Profile
Brown sugar and roasted notes are the signature aromatics of this Vertuo coffee capsule. It’s an intense long black with a distinctly lingering aftertaste and a thick coffee crema.
