UMUTIMA wa LAKE KIVU RWANDA
Savor the result of modern post-harvest practices of coffee growers from Lake Kivu, Rwanda. They produced this aromatic Arabica, guided by their dedication to growing high-quality coffee. Discover the refreshing union of fluid texture with bright, juicy fruit notes, enhanced by a delicate aftertaste. Intensity 6.

Origin
Highly aromatic Arabica, purely sourced from the small coffee communities of Lake Kivu region in Rwanda.

Roasting
One half of the green coffee beans undergoes a lighter roasting which highlights its juicy fruit notes. The other half gets a darker roast for delightful strength and texture. By thoughtfully selecting these parameters, Nespresso experts ensure that all the brightness and complexity of the beans’ flavour is delivered into your cup.

TANIM de Chiapas Mexico
Relish the result of the traditional craftsmanship of coffee growers in Chiapas, Mexico. They produced this delightful Arabica, guided by their dedication to growing high-quality coffee. Discover the sweet harmony of a silky-smooth texture and bready aromas with delicious nutty notes. Intensity 7.

Origin
Highly delightful Arabica, purely sourced from the small coffee communities of Chiapas region in Mexico.

Roasting
To honour the versatile aromatic profile of the green coffee beans, Nespresso experts apply split roasting technic. One part if the beans gets a long-time low-temperature roast to protect the specific nutty and bready notes, while the other part takes a shorter, darker roast to enhance intensity and develop a silky-smooth texture.

Anyone tried them yet? Gonna order some today.

The Tanim at first sip isn't that complex but it is quite nice. I greatly prefer the Umutima but I've only had one of each, so...

Not a fan of either, tbh.

Thoughts on the new Envivo Lungo?
post #995 of 1019
^Not a fan. I don't dislike robusta, but this is just unpleasant. Too bitter etc.
post #996 of 1019
Too bitter? I mean, to me at least (and I am hardly an expert) it is no more bitter than an average cup of coffee/espresso.
post #997 of 1019
Yep. Very bitter. I have a dark Italian-style espresso roast with 25% robusta here that I brew in a French press that's far more balanced.

Are you drinking it as a lungo? Standard-sized lungo or significantly less?
post #998 of 1019
Has anyone tried the Cubacita or the other LE? I'm having a Rosbaya and it's just perfect.

Hoo boy. The Cafezinho do Brasil is just not good.

I've found that Brazilian coffee (or at least coffee in Brazil) has this harsh, medicinal/chemical taste to it and the Cafezinho just accentuates those flavors. There's a little nuttiness at the beginning and end but the crescendo is the bad flavor. Thank goodness I only have one capsule.

This aftertaste is awful, bleh.
post #1001 of 1019
frown.gif I ordered one sleeve of the new Brasil. Did not get the Cuban. My habits have converged on the Envivo lungo and the Arpeggio, Indriya, Rosbaya and Dulsao de Brasi, depending on what I feel like and time of day.
post #1002 of 1019
I've had a few shots of the Brasil and liked it.
post #1003 of 1019
Well your face is ugly. I can see why people would like it, FWIW. It's just a... distinctive profile.
post #1004 of 1019
Does anyone have experience with any of the Nespresso alternatives? I have some from the Ethical Coffee company that are thoroughly middle of the road. Had some when I was somewhere overseas that was so acrid and foul no cream or sugar could mask the awfulness...

I've been going with the Envivo lungo for cost purposes. I can use one capsule instead of two of the espressos. Not quite as good as the double espressos I generally drink (Ristretto, Kazaar, Dharkan), but it does the job.
