This medium dark roast embodies Italy’s iconic coffee culture in just a short, quick sip. So, if you’re after a small taste for yourself, this is it.
Nespresso experts surveyed the best local bars and roasters in Italy and drew inspiration from their tasting experiences to craft a sophisticated recipe that combines Arabicas and Robustas coming for all three producing continents. Brazilian Arabicas serve as a neutral base that is spiced with a dash of high quality Robusta from South India. Finally, the best of South American and East African Arabicas add a hint of a crisp fruit note, masterfully finishing the Ristretto Italiano.
Split roasting means you can taste what each coffee brings to the cup. The long-roasted Robusta coffee gives Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano its body, its roastiness, and its cocoa bitterness. Putting the Arabica coffees through a quick roast keeps their bright acidity and fruity notes alive and gives Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano more in the cup. We celebrate Italy’s rich history of master blenders and roasters in Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano.
