The Nespresso®* Capriccio - What makes it so special?

The Nespresso®* Capriccio rates a 5 on a scale of 1 to 12, so it is perfect for those of us who prefer a somewhat less intense coffee drinking experience. The light/medium acidity of this blend comes from the presence of South American Arabica beans grown at high altitudes. That acidity is perfectly balanced by the perfect amount of Brazilian Arabica and just a touch of Robusta. It is then lightly roasted in order to preserve that light/medium acidity. It carries a rich aroma and a typical cereal note.

A Nespresso®* Capriccio review typically mentions how the blend is full-bodied flavor, its lack of bitterness and its smooth finish. It's been called bright and delicate, smoothly balanced, with a clean, sweet, lemon-toned finish. The Arabica coffee beans that are used in the Capriccio come from the high mountains of Brazil. There is also a touch of Robusta coffee beans from a similar region added to give the espresso it's balanced flavor.

Nespresso®* varieties such as the Capriccio fall are divided into different categories. The Capriccio blend is part of the Intenso category as it is not as strong as some of the other Nespresso®* varieties, and is also a blend of both Arabica and Robusta coffee beans.

Nespresso®* Capriccio - How to drink it?

Featuring a light/medium acidity and a medium body, Nespresso®*’s Capriccio provides a pleasant experience, if you usually are a fan of bitter espressos. Due to its light roasting and medium body, it also might work well as a cappuccino but be aware that the acidity still manages to pierce through the milk.
