As summer winds down, Nespresso releases their Limited Edition into the stores; this year we are looking at the Cubania, a very robust little capsule that tips the scale at a 13 on the Intensity meter.... that used to go only to a 10, until Kazaar broke the scale at an 11. Hang on.
Nespresso bills this as a Cuban inspired coffee, and no Cuban coffee beans were hurt, or even used in the making of this blend. Given the state of trade relations here in the US with Cuba, that makes some sense.
This capsules is "Inspired by the passion, and warmth of the Cuban way of life.... a bold blend of Arabicas with a specially prepared Indian Robusta, steam treated to obtain a dense texture and a powerful bouquet with complex aromatics and inimitable strength of character, but without an overwhelming bitterness."
