Nespresso’s World Explorations coffee range showcases distinct coffees inspired by cities from around the world. The intense Cape Town Envivo Lungo and Stockholm Fortissio Lungo, and the more balanced Vienna Linizio Lungo and Tokyo Vivalto Lungo, are now joined by two new mild cups – Shanghai Lungo and Buenos Aires Lungo, inspired by the flavour profiles typical of these Asian and South American cities.
The Shanghai Lungo captures China’s newly developed modern coffee culture. It has a distinctive light roast blend that combines Kenyan, Chinese and Indonesian Arabicas. The coffee’s berry notes and fine acidity are best enjoyed as a longer cup to appreciate the drinking experience like a local.
In a nod to Argentina’s vibrant food scene where sweetness prevails, Buenos Aires Lungo blends a gently roasted Colombian Arabica with Ugandan Robusta, to deliver distinct cereal and sweet popcorn notes. Paying tribute to the city’s love for smooth long cups characterised by a sweet, milky flavour, this coffee is best served with a generous drop of milk and sugar.
South Africa’s preference towards Asian coffees has shaped local tastes over time. Cape Town Envivo Lungo, therefore, blends Indian Arabica and Robusta to deliver an intense and full-bodied Lungo with a punchy, bitter note and woodsy aroma. The coffee’s smooth roasted notes unfold with a splash of milk to enjoy it like a local.
Taking consumers on a leisurely wander through the capital of Sweden, Stockholm Fortissio Lungo recreates the aromatic profile of a Swedish coffee by coupling Monsooned Malabar with Colombian Arabica for an intense, sweet cup with a hint of bitterness. To recreate a true Swedish experience, this flavourful coffee is enjoyed with friends and family over a plate of cinnamon rolls.
The Japanese enjoy a richer coffee with balanced, elegant aromas. Tokyo Vivalto Lungo captures these preferences with refined Ethiopian and Mexican Arabicas that deliver a complex, floral cup with a hint of acidity. To enjoy like a local, extract this long black cup and take time to savour its aromas.
Taken from Vienna’s coffeehouse tradition, Vienna Linizio Lungo pays homage to the smoothness of Viennese coffee. It pairs sweet Brazilian and Colombian Arabicas, lightly roasted to enhance the malty and aromatic notes in the cup. For an authentic Viennese experience, it is suggested that this lungo be topped up with hot water for an even longer cup and served with a slice of cake.
To complement the two new World Explorations flavours – Shanghai and Buenos Aires Lungo – Nespresso has added two new colourful cups to its iconic Pixie Lungo collection. The range of beautifully crafted, double-walled coffee cups, now has a red one for Shanghai and a glossy silver one for Buenos Aires; to match the brightly coloured cups representing the two cities.
Nespresso also recommends the Creatista Pro machine to takes things to the next level, to deliver barista-style results at home. The stainless-steel design exudes high-tech excellence, with features like simultaneous brewing and milk frothing, onscreen recipes, an intuitive touch screen and multiple adjustable foam settings to deliver satisfaction, consistently.
The Nespresso World Explorations coffee range and accessories are available online and at Nespresso boutiques.
