Nespresso Club - Page 30

post #436 of 882
I would recommend the strongest capsule you can find for lattes/cappuce. Also, more coffe grounds per ml is better, so just pull 30ml.

Secret coffee labs probably involving GMO, and Robusta.

I like the biodegradeable pods from Ethical Coffee Company in Cremoso... great for both ristretto and lungo shots... and slightly cheaper

What capsules do you guys like to use for lattes, and which do you generally drink straight?
Edit: Indriya is amazing. Gave me a big caffeine buzz.

I approve of these above poasts.

What's GMO? They are pretty open about using Robusta.

It's my understanding that using a small amount of Robusta in Espresso blends is pretty common (i.e. not just Nespresso). When it comes to espresso and robusta, I think it's usually less about cutting corners and more about getting a nice crema.

I really want more coconut... I knew I should have bought more right after I tasted it.

If you haven't tasted it there in no point trying to explain it to you. It's really a masterfully done coffee, nothing candyish about it.

Kona, on the other hand, was not worth $2 a pod. Kona seems to work much better as a pour over.

So does anyone know the difference between the CitiZ D120 and the D121? Does the 121 have any improvements or...?
