Review of the New Lungo — Linizio

My first Linizio Lungo

My first Linizio Lungo

Update March 2: After some ordering delays due to our Midwest snow storms, I’m finally this morning drinking my first Linizio Lungo. Before I tell you my thoughts, a disclaimer: I’m not a coffee aficionado. I just like coffee, especially Nespresso. Here’s what I think about the new lungo: While brewing, the aroma was just as compelling as any coming out of my Essenza. The first sip revealed a new flavor that I’d call slightly citric. It’s definitely light. Very light. My husband used the words “mild” and “smooth,” but he aslo wondered why this would be marketed as a morning blend, when he prefers a more stout coffee in the morning. Now finishing my first cup, I agree with my husband when he call it “watery.” It tastes like I might have pushed the espresso button after making a lungo, just to get more water in the cup. I know people who do this — push twice every time they make a Nespresso.

So, if you’re a two-push Nespresso drinker, or if you like your lungos light, then you might like this new Linizio. If we never order more, I’ll certainly miss the beautiful orange capsule — good color, Nespresso!

Original Post: Here it is! A new lungo!!  I can’t wait to try the new Linizio pure Arabica from South America. Has anyone here tried it yet? If so, please leave a comment below. I’ll review it once my order arrives.

Nespresso Linizio Lungo


Now there are four permanent lungos: This new Linizio, Fortissio, Vivalto and Decaffeinato.
You can read the entire description on this Nespresso page.Nespresso announced the new lungo this week, and describes it as a “well-rounded blend made of Brazilian and Colombian coffee… The split-roasting gives a cereal, malty note typical for the Bourbon variety, while maintaining its mild and smooth character.”
