Located on this page, you will find everything about our lungo coffee, and we will focus in greater detail on some important topics regarding this subject. What is a lungo Nespresso®* coffee? How do you serve, drink, or make lungo with a Nespresso®* Machine? Why is it popular? What is the ideal flavor profile? Does lungo coffee suit me? You may be asking yourself a few of these questions, and we hope to clarify all of them here.

We offer savings of up to 35% off per capsule—compared to the original Nespresso®* capsules—without sacrificing excellent coffee quality. Our Nespresso®* compatible coffee capsules are available in 25 different Lungo and Espresso varieties. At the same time, it is very important to us to act responsibly—for the well-being of our earth. That being said, all Gourmesso capsules are filled with Fairtrade certified coffee.

What is lungo coffee?

Meet Lungo, the brother of Espresso! Espresso and Lungo may not be twins, but you can refer to them as brothers. A lungo is an extended espresso, using coarser coffee beans and twice the amount of water that is used to brew an espresso. A normal serving of espresso measures 25 to 60 milliliters, while a lungo might measure 130 to 170 milliliters. Although Espresso and Lungo may have a similar personality, a lungo manifests more complex flavors due to the modification in the brewing process.

What is a Lungo Nespresso®*?

1- Lungo is a long coffee!

Lungo is a long coffee (generally with double the amount of water) that uses the same high-pressure extraction technology as Espressos.

2- Designated Button to use with a Lungo capsule!

The Nespresso®* machine has a button to use with Lungo capsule varieties, and it automatically adds more water for the lungo sized Nespresso®*.

3- Lungo size espresso is 3.75 ounces, or 110 mL!

The original setting for Nespresso®* lungo size espresso is 3.75 ounces, or 110 mL, which is how much espresso coffee that will fill your cup.

4- More caffeine than an Espresso?

The Lungos of Nespresso®* do not contain more caffeine than an Espresso.

5- Long extraction for large cups!

Lungos are specifically designed to be optimally refined in a long extraction for large cups—maintaining their full flavor potential.

6- Who should drink it?

Lungo espresso is usually for coffee drinkers who enjoy a milder coffee with a great flavor profile.

You can learn more on our detailed page on Lungo Nespresso®* coffee .

The difference between Nespresso®* espresso and lungo capsules?

1- The difference between Nespresso®* espresso and lungo coffee comes from the roasting and grinding procedures and the dose of coffee per capsule, which are all optimized to ensure the best possible extraction and quality for your cup of coffee.

2- 6.25 ounces is the ideal cup size compared to the Espresso Cup Ideal of 2 oz (60 mL). Nespresso’s®* recommended Lungo Cup Size is 5 oz (140 mL), which is basically the size of a coffee mug; whereas, espresso is the size of a cup.

3- Lungos are long coffees crafted through a long extraction process to fill large cups. Their body and flavor remains full and satisfying.

4- The Lungos of Nespresso®* do not surpass an Espresso in terms of caffeine content.

5- Lungo espresso is usually for coffee drinkers who enjoy a milder coffee with a great flavor profile.

Lungo vs. Americano

Both of these fan favorites may seem similar at first, but if you look a little closer, it will be much clearer how the two differ. The Americano is simply an espresso with water added after the brewing to dilute the intensity of the flavor. To contrast, the lungo has more water added during the brewing process resulting in a more developed, bitter flavor.
