in flavour and body, Ristretto combines the best South American Arabicas, from
countries such as Colombia and Brazil, with great East African Arabicas, famous
for their citrus aromas with a touch of Robusta for added zing. The slow split
roasting of the beans creates a contrasting bouquet, bringing together subtle
fruity and acid notes, with intensely roasted and chocolate ones.
Nespresso experts surveyed the best local bars and roasters in Italy and drew inspiration from their tasting experiences to craft a sophisticated recipe that combines arabicas and robustas coming for all three producing continents. Brazilian arabicas serve as a neutral base that is spiced with a dash of high quality robusta from South India. Finally, the best of South American and East African arabicas add a hint of a crisp fruit note, masterfully finishing the Ristretto Italiano.
Split-roasting means you can taste what each coffee brings to the cup. The long-roasted robusta coffee gives ISPIRAZIONE Ristretto Italiano its body, its roastiness, and its cocoa bitterness. Putting the arabica coffees through a quick roast keeps their bright acidity and fruity notes alive and gives ISPIRAZIONE Ristretto Italiano more in the cup. We celebrate Italy’s rich history of master blenders and roasters in ISPIRAZIONE Ristretto Italiano.
A roasty and
intense coffee but with fruity notes and a hint of acidity dancing through the
blend – ISPIRAZIONE Ristretto Italiano is mysterious and magnetic in its
complexity. It’s a profile worthy of an ambassador – a coffee that explains
Italians’ passion for coffee and makes sense of why it’s ingrained in daily
life. Extracted to the classic 25 ml, you’ll soon see how right the Italians
are – this drop of deliciousness shows how less can truly be more.
