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.

Do any of these Nepresso capsules have a sweet taste to them? I like the white chocolate mocha drink from Starbucks which happens to have a rich and strong taste but sweet. I'm wondering if any of the Nepresso capusules have the same taste?
