Nespresso Fortissio Lungo Grand Cru

By  |  0 Comments

Nespresso re-releases its Fortissio Lungo as a Grand Cru for a richer, more full-bodied, long coffee experience.

Five years have passed since Nespresso’s intense Fortissio Lungo was launched, in that time Nespresso has increased its range of intense Grands Crus, moving its coffee intensity scale beyond 10 to 12.

The work the Nespresso coffee experts have undertaken in increasing the complexity, richness and intensity of the Fortissio Lungo Grand Cru coffee has been achieved without moving to a darker roast. The coffee’s texture comes from the full-body and raw character of the Monsooned Malabar Arabica and its profile complexity derives from the structure, roundness and subtle characteristics of acidity thanks to Latin American Arabicas. The process undertaken is a split roast that has attained a prominent body with the retention of desired richness.

The Fortissio Lungo rejoins the Nespresso Lungo range of Grands Crus, which includes the Bukeela ka Ethiopia, the only Pure Origin Lungo with its wild, musky and woody notes and an intensity of 3, and Linizio Lungo with its malted cereal notes and Vivalto Lungo with its subtle floral and roasted notes, both with an intensity of 4. Rounding out the Nespresso Lungo range is the light and full-flavoured Decaffeinato Lungo, with an intensity of 3.

Priced at S$9.90 per sleeve of 10 capsules, the Fortissio Lungo will be available from 1 July 2014. Nespresso will also introduce a special five sleeve Lungo pack (S$50.30), which has a sleeve of Fortissio Lungo, Bukeela ka Ethiopia, Vivalto Lungo, Linizio Lungo and Decaffeinato Lungo, together with a complimentary breakfast recipe card set.
