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

Similar to the Kazaar blend, the Nespresso®* Dharkan goes above and beyond the Nespresso®* intensity scale of 1-10, coming in at an 11. This rich, savory, and unforgettable blend has been raved about since it's release, and similar to the Kazaar blend, the Dharkan is one of the best selling Nespresso®* varieties.

For a Nespresso®* Dharkan review it is important to focus on the unique ways this coffee is harvested, washed, and roasted. These different steps create an espresso that expresses itself in a silky, velvety texture. It takes its character from Latin America, and Asia and its intense flavor reveals itself with hints of cocoa powder, toasted cereal and heavy roasted notes. This espresso is roasted slowly at a low temperature, giving it an exquisite personality. There are very distinct notes of a bitter cocoa powder along with toasted cereal.

Nespresso®* Dharkan - How to drink it?

The blend is made up of finely selected Arabica beans from Latin America and Asia. These coffee beans are washed and then undergo a long roasting process at a low temperature to bring out an astonishingly smooth intensity. This roasting process creates and unveils an irresistible velvety-smoothness to the finished espresso. The choice of coffee beans is also what puts the Nespresso®* Dharkan blend so high on the intensity scale and makes it perfect to drink as an espresso.
