Vertuoline has four espresso pod types. Those are:
- Decaffeinato Intenso.
If you are looking for the devilish strength, power, and taste, then «diavolitto» is a beverage for you. It is the strongest one among the Vertuoline espresso pods and can be regarded as the strongest among all Nespresso pods. In fact, diavolitto espresso is a blend that combines split roasted Brazilian Arabica with Robusta of the South and Central America.
Diavolitto has a very strong bitter taste with the leather and oak wood shades. This combination is achieved thanks to the high but split roasting of the coffee beans and very fine grinding.Such an approach allows to save the taste and aroma of every bean, and that is why the oily dense foam appears in the cup, while the pod comes through the centrifuge. Each process, happening with the capsule, is absolutely natural.
The strength level of the finished diavolitto beverage is 11 of 11. This is the best energizing espresso for the morning. Each pod can produce 1,35 oz of the drink ― it is a small espresso cup, but with diavolitto, you will not need more.
Caution! Remember that this espresso type is very strong! If you have heart problems or high blood pressure it would be better if you choose some other pod type.
Nespresso Altissio is a unique blend of the South America and Costa Rica Arabicas with strong contrasting notes of Robusta that bring subtle cereal shades into the taste of the drink. It is a very strong but balanced beverage that becomes even softer with milk addition.
Altissio blend is highly but rather shortly roasted. Such an approach helps to save some unique coffee beans components that make the taste so balanced and strong it one and the same time. So, if you are looking for something special, try this bold blend of two Arabicas, grown in the South and Central parts of the American continent.
Nespresso Altissio is rather strong beverage with an intensity 9 of 11. It’s softer than Diavolitto but still is very energizing and could be dangerous for the people with weak heart and high blood pressure. One Altissio pod produces 1.35 oz of perfect espresso with its famous oily dense crema.
If you prefer something light, soft, and tender then Nespresso Voltesso is the beverage for you. The unique soft taste of the coffee appears thanks to the South American Arabicas combinations with some Brazilian Bourbon coffee beans. The taste and aromas of the finished drink are supplementing with biscuit notes and velvet sweet shades. Pour the milk into the cup of the Voltesso and you will increase the softness of your coffee.
Coffee beans for Nespresso Voltesso go through the split roasting. Colombian coffee is lightly roasted, and Brazilian comes through the long and deep roasting. The combination of two differently roasted varieties, in the end, gives a soft biscuity taste of the beverage.
Nespresso Voltesso is a coffee for the pleasure. It has rather low intensity: 4 of 11. So, it’s less energizing and invigorating than Diavolitto or Altisso. The soft sweet taste of the coffee will not leave anyone indifferent. This beverage is perfectly fit to the people with weak heart and blood pressure. One Voltesso pod produces 1.35 oz of perfect espresso.
