Today, I experienced my first espresso coffee that was filtered through a Nespresso Mr. Coffee machine. This blend is composed of the most prestigious Central and South American Arabicas found in Costa Rica and Colombia and is cultivated according to traditional methods to preserve their malted and fruity profiles. This blend of Central and South American Arabicas is medium roast to bring out a round and very balanced bouquet. It evokes the scent of freshly toasted coffee escaping from the roaster: roasted and caramelised notes.
For me this is not the same as brewed coffee. I find it a solid jolt, and slightly bitter with thick form. It is easy to say traditionally pressed espresso coffee is not my cup of tea.
