    Here's my first review of a L'or pod - The Profondo Lungo! This is a coffee with a unique personality, flooding your senses with incredible aromas of clove, cinnamon and dried berries. Its tastes are extremely well-balanced with no harshness whatsoever, making this a very pleasant drink. My only gripe is that the aftertaste is skewed towards the acidic and bitter side, so you might want to wash it down after you're done - 4.5/5! I see myself coming back to this a lot more.

    Pods from this box occasionally have the "clear start" problem - Where water finds its way around the pod at the beginning of the brew, causing the first few drops to come out clear.

    The Profondo Lungo is described by L'or as a medium-dark roast with an intensity of 8, with chocolatey, nutty and fruity notes, that is intense and spicy. At SGD$0.695 a pod, this is a relatively affordable way to get a great coffee. Highly recommended!

    It's time for another L'Or pod! Last time I tried the Profondo Lungo, I loved it, so I've got high hopes for the Onyx here and true enough, the Onyx doesn't disappoint. Being a stronger coffee, the Onyx doesn't hold back with heavy, nutty and roasty scents, so incredibly powerful, yet without any single overwhelming flavor. You can even taste a very subtle, lightly spicy note. Taste wise, expect a full-bodied cup, sweet with slight bitter and acidic notes that are amplified in the aftertaste - 4.5/5, pleasant all around despite it strength.

    The manufacturer states that this coffee is an Arabica-Robusta blend, created with extreme flavors in mind, with chocolate, spicy and bitter cocoa notes, and an intensity rated at 12. At SGD$0.73 a pop, this is an exemplary choice of an intense, flavorful drink that you won't go wrong with!

    Has a kind of burned toast type character, but not in a totally bad way. Slight burned toast is actually the way I like it.

    It'd say this roast is pretty smooth and there's no bitterness beyond that. Crema is medium and lovely. It's neutral and light enough to not overrun a milk drink. It could use a bit more acidity/complexity in the blend.

    I debated between a 3.5 and 4 and decided on a 4.

    Cupping Method:Nespresso capsule - bought a 10 pack at Carrefour. It was 4.70 Euro for 10.

    Good crema and mouthfeel. Straightforward dark roast with a bit of smoke. Limited complexity but smooth.

    Smooth espresso capsule in the medium range with a bit of earthiness. Low on the acidity and complexity with a good clean, mouthfeel.

Editor's Overview

We tested multiple L'or Nespresso capsules here in Spain - they are fairly ubiquitous in supermarkets here and have found them consistently solid and representative of the roast level they are going for and priced very fairly. -Ted Chan, Managing Editor
