The Genova Livanto is perhaps one of the best Nespresso flavours to have flown under the radar.
It’s a beautiful aromatic coffee with restraint from some of the strong roast and bitterness that most of the other Ispirazione Italiano coffee bring to the table.
It is design to only be extracted as an espresso shot, unlike most of the other coffees in this range which can be made as a ristretto too.
It’s sweet, floral, with a big sweetness on the mouth. There’s a little acidity, while very little bitterness, making this a very approachable coffee.
Crafted from 100% Latin America Arabica coffee, Livanto has a base of Brazilian Arabica layered with high-altitude Arabicas from Central and South America.
Toasted nuts and cereal. Caramel sweetness. Highly aromatic. Balanced and rounded. An excellent coffee.
Pros of the Livanto:
If you enjoy more aromatic and flavourful coffees then this one is for you. We also love how it’s 100% Arabica beans. This means it’s a lot more like the coffee you’d expect from a cafe.
Cons of the Livanto:
It lacks a little bit of body, and could be perceived as somewhat weak (compared to the other big hitters in the Ispirazione Italiana range). Unfortunately for a pure Arabica it’s not possible to get enough coffee into such a small capsule.
