ESE Review: Caffe Gimoka Decaf Espresso Pods
Gimoka pods come to us courtesy of Miami Espresso an importer of great Italian ESE espresso coffee pods, and ESE machines. The Gimoka roasters are located in the heart of Sondrio province near the gateway to the Alps in northern Italy where they blend and roast great coffees from around the world. Their pods are nitrogen flushed for packing and to eliminate oxidation of the precious coffee flavors.
These ESE Espresso pods are made to be used in popular makers like the Breville Café Roma, the Krups XP4050 and the Hamilton Beach 40729 espresso machines; all have the ability to use ESE Espresso pods.
When you open the Caffe Gimoka pod, a sweet aroma jumps out at you and gets our mouths watering for a bit of the nectar. The brew is good, and leaves us with plenty of crèma. The taste is a well-rounded very clean finish, indicative of an all Arabica blend. I can’t be sure, but that is the flavor profile that comes through. It has moderate acidity, but nothing stands out of place in this well-rounded flavor: no strong bitterness, no strong aftertaste, and not too much acidity. The finish is clean, if even a bit weak, which is the only possible small indication that it’s a decaf. Otherwise, this is a solid cup of espresso that will be well received by anyone looking for a decaf.
