Nespresso Tanzaru Espresso Capsule - Light Roasted Excellence
I have been drinking Nespresso Tanzaru Espresso all weekend and have to offer a quick review of these capsules. If you like a lighter roast, you need to try these out; I think that the blenders and roasters deserve an "A+" for this one; it's really well done.
Quickly - the Arabica blend is from Peru and Tanzania and is light roasted - a "4 of 10" on Nespresso's little box side scale. I blew through a couple of sleeves since Thursday and am going back for more after I work off a few sleeves of Livanto and Ristretto. Upon brewing the Tanzaru, you get a multi-layered blend of light roasted caramel and nutty flavors. Upon further inspection, the citrus and blueberry notes appear with a good acidic backbone in tasting to support the fruitiness. Drinking is nicely tart without being overly acidic, offering a good display of coffee flavor neat, without having to add sugar or milk. There really are no dark roasted notes; no pungent smokiness.
With the sunny days just hitting the Boston area, and temps back up to springtime delights, I have to say that these lightly roasted delicate shots of Tanzaru are a great companion to the new season.
If you like a lighter roasted cup, do not delay on buying some of these; they are some of the best limited or special edition espresso capsules I have had from Nespresso.
These can be enjoyed on the whole line of Nespresso brewers including, The Nespresso Citiz, Nespresso Essenza and the Nespresso Le Cube.
