Espresso Leggero is a mild, refreshing blend of South American coffees with secret depths. Lightly roasted Brazilian and Colombian Arabicas and Robusta give it a well-balanced and velvety body, toasted cereal and cocoa notes, and just that whisper of acidity and bitterness. Coffee milk recipes bring out a malty, caramel mellowness in Espresso Leggero, but the espresso coffee’s rich aromas still shine through.
Rich & Velvety
Dry processed Arabicas from Brazil are known to be mild. It makes a solid base onto which we add Colombian Arabica for its lively acidity. A dry Robusta brings body - that velvety texture - and slightly vegetal notes. Though its predominantly a blend of mild coffees, that Robusta gives this Nespresso pro capsule its secret depths.
We light roast the Arabica and Robusta coffees in Nespresso Espresso Leggero. It keeps the Colombian coffee’s acidity alive and it gives the others those gentle toasted cereal and cocoa notes. All in balance.
Espresso Leggero is velvety on the tongue, and full of smooth cocoa and cereal notes. That hint of acidity in this Nespresso espresso is balanced out by bitterness in the coffee blend.
