We chose an Arabica coffee from Brazil to give this Vertuo coffee pod a roundness and balance. We blended in Ethiopian coffee so its delicate aromatics would add finesse to this black coffee. Half the coffee is Nespresso decaffeinated – this careful process keeps the character of the coffees alive. The other half is left caffeinated.
The Arabica coffees in Half Caffeinato are split roasted. The Brazilian beans are roasted lightly and quickly to develop their sweetness. The second split gives this Vertuo coffee its velvety texture.
Half Caffeinato is a half caffeine coffee that’s sweet, smooth and velvety. It makes a medium intensity long black or Americano with a delicate biscuit note. If you’re going to reduce your caffeine – why settle? Half Caffeinato is half the caffeine, but all the taste.
