    This is the UCC Lungo Forte coffee - It's been a long time since I had a dedicated Lungo pod, so I'm glad to get back into it!

    Initially, the coffee was incredibly bitter, leaving an unpleasant lingering taste at the back of the throat. However, as I continued drinking, acidity and subtle spicy and floral scents emerged, making the flavor more complex. The roasted aromas were quite pronounced, and the coffee improved as I progressed, though it remained quite strong.

    This pod has a roasty chocolatey scent, with detectable spicy notes and a fruity flavor profile, thanks to the acidity - 4/5, absent of any obvious defects.

    The manufacturer describes this pod as a blend of Arabica beans with a hint of lightly roasted Robusta, offering toast and cereal notes. With a medium roast at an intensity of 6/12, this coffee is described as "pleasant".

    It's time to revisit Coles' Urban Coffee Culture line! This is their Intense pod, rated by the manufacturer as a drink with an intensity level of 12.

    The primary flavor profile to expect here is the richness of dark chocolate, with some hints of earthiness. Overall a very strong, bitter coffee with a subtle sweetness, that leaves behind a lingering but not unpleasant bitterness. 3.5/5 - "Intense" is apt labelling here, be prepared to be hit hard by that bitterness, but if that's the kind of flavor profile you like, this is ideal for you!

    Today's coffee is from Coles' Urban Coffee Culture line, and is simply known as "Medium" with an intensity level of 6. Despite this labelling, I found this to be quite strong, with a heavy toasty aroma containing a hint of berries. The taste is a cross between sweetness and acidity, though its bitterness becomes more apparent in its aftertaste. Tempering this with milk makes it far more agreeable. Otherwise, on its own, this is a 3/5.

    While marketed as having hints of milk chocolate and cinnamon, and with a sweet caramel aftertaste, I, unfortunately, had quite a bit of trouble pinning down these notes. At SGD$0.68 a pod, this is a comparatively affordable option. A decaffeinated variant is also available, which we'll try next time!
