The first sip of coffee in the morning is a blissful moment of sheer pleasure. Inviting coffee lovers around the world to savour this moment for longer, the coffee experts at Nespressohave created a new permanent addition to their range, introducing Envivo Lungo. An intense Lungo to enliven the senses and help start the day right.

New EnvivoLungo (intensity 9 on the scale from 1 – 12) is the most intense of the Nespresso Lungo range with a sumptuous and unique flavour.

This dark roasted coffee is a blend of distinctive Arabica from India with a Robusta from Mexico, with roasted notes and rich scents reminiscent of aromatic woods and gingerbread.

Alexis Rodriguez, Head of Coffee Development at Nespressocommented, “We carefully crafted Envivo Lungo with a high proportion of Robusta coffee beans to produce a strong, full bodied coffee. We specifically use washed Robusta which gives a more refined taste to deliver a final product that is intense but without any harshness on the palate.”

The Nespresso intensity scale has been created to help consumers differentiate between their favourite Grands Crus. The intensity is defined by looking at three aspects an evaluation of the roasted notes, the bitterness and the body.

When creating the new Grand Cru, the Nespresso coffee experts were inspired by the traditional morning coffee that many consumers savour with milk in a longer serving size so Envivo Lungo also marries perfectly with milk, maintaining its distinctive intense flavour for a deliciously rich and full-bodied start to the day.
