Nespresso re-released its Fortissio Lungo Grand Cru, as a richer, more full-bodied, long coffee experience. Fortissio Lungo has been re- mastered to deliver a more intense Grand Cru which has jumped one notch to 8 on the Nespresso coffee intensity scale.
It is five years since Fortissio Lungo was launched, introduced as the first truly intense Nespresso Lungo. In that time Nespresso has increased its range of intense Grands Crus, moving its coffee intensity scale beyond 10 to 12.
The Fortissio Lungo Grand Cru has an exquisite fullness on the palate. With a dash of milk and as a Caffè Latte it becomes a sublimely intense coffee and milk experience.
Increasing the blend’s intensity was achieved while continuing Nespresso relationships with growers in its AAA Sustainable QualityTM Program at the same time adding new farmers so that it could attain the heights of intense complexity that its coffee experts were seeking.
Fortissio Lungo rejoins the Nespresso Lungo range of Grands Crus, which includes Bukeela ka Ethiopia, the only Pure Origin Lungo with its wild, musky and woody notes and an intensity of 3, and Linizio Lungo with its malted cereal notes and Vivalto Lungo with its subtle floral and roasted notes, both with an intensity of 4. Rounding out the Nespresso Lungo range is the light and full-flavoured Decaffeinato Lungo, with an intensity of 3.
Priced at SGD 9.90 per sleeve of 10 capsules, Fortissio Lungo will be available from 1 July 2014.
