Roma just isn’t strong enough

I’m in the mood for coffee. Luckily I have a brilliant espresso machine that uses Nespresso pods. Now you may be thinking Nescafe coffee is shit, and so did I, but these pods in my machine make the best titting coffee this side of the Alps.

When we got it we decided to taste through the range of strengths and buy the ones we liked most. We decided we liked the strongest three.

I just had a Ristretto (strength 10) with plenty of sugar and it was bloody marvelous. I then had an Arpeggio (strength 9) which was probably even better. Then a Roma (strength 8), it was weak and lacking focus.

Tonight I will be trying their new blend from India, also strength 10.
