Whenever you visit a new country, one of the things to always try is their local coffee. Coffee can define one’s cultural identity as each country has a unique way of producing, processing, and serving coffee. Fortunately for us, we no longer have to travel far to try out various coffee cultures as Nespresso’s World Explorations is bringing it straight to our homes.
Following the warm welcome towards the limited-edition Miami Espresso blend earlier this year, Nespresso continues to further its World Explorations range by adding three new permanent espresso variants that would help expand our horizon in traveling through coffee.
Rio De Janeiro Espresso
Reflecting the city’s deeply rooted heritage of growing and drinking coffee, Nespresso’s coffee experts give their creative spin on the Brazilian cafezinho. As the world’s largest coffee producer, you can expect that the lively and colorful city has a wide variety of coffee tastes, which the blend’s complexity perfectly reflects. Herbal, spicy, pleasantly bitter, and velvety with a hint of walnut and sandalwood, this blend will surely give you a glimpse into the Brazilian way of life. Drink it like a local by doubling Rio De Janeiro Espresso with hot water to taste the typical smooth Carioca coffee.
When you hear the word Paris, one of the first things that come to mind is their cafés. The city of lights prides itself on its rich café culture, with locals regularly philosophizing over a cup of coffee. This blend will surely transport you to the Parisian café terrace with its lightly roasted Arabica with a touch of high-quality dark-roasted Robusta, delivering a balanced coffee with light bitterness, cereal biscuity notes, pleasant acidity, and a hint of citrus. Enjoy it like a local by having it in black or as a café au lait with a French pastry.
The eclectic and harmonious hustle and bustle in the world’s earliest coffeehouses found in this cosmopolitan city of the bygone Ottoman Empire inspired Nespresso coffee experts to create this blend. The thick and velvety espresso that is full of wild aromatics and a balance of bitter roasted and fruity notes, with a touch of acidity and almond finish, will take you back in time to the original coffeehouses. Savor it like a local by pairing it with a glass of water and a piece of Turkish Delight.
