We were recently introduced to luxury Belgian coffee brand Belmio which offers a range of Belgian coffees with intensely rich flavours in the convenience of a pod for your Nespresso system.
The pods are made of aluminium pods and are an industry first because they enable the coffee to stay fresher for longer for an authentic coffee-house taste.
Belmio coffee pods are compatible with the following Nespresso machines – Lattissima, Citiz, Pixie, Maestria, Inissia, Essenza and Magimix.
We were sent a selection of coffees to try including
Allegro – a medium roasted blend of Arabica and Indian Robusta beans. The flavour is rich in ‘colourful and spicy accents with hints of pure chocolate and an aftertaste containing a suggestion of honey and wood.
Origio – a full bodied blend made from 100% Arabica beans.
Intensio – Of South African origin, this coffee is subjected to a very intense roasting process to give a highly powerful flavour and low acidity. It has “subtle hints of cacao and deliciously spicy elements.
Risoluto – a darker roast made from a special selection of Robusta and the finest Arabica with spicy accents and a hint of caramel.
Largo – an all round coffee composed from the best 100% Arabica beans of Central and South American origin. This one is a slightly lighter roast with a subtle and fresh aroma and “its flavour is soft and full-bodied with sweet and fruity accents”.
The Husband’s favourite was the darkly rich Risoluto whilst I preferred the more easy drinking Allegro. It’s clear there’s a lot more to coffee blends than you’ll find in your standard jar of instant and if you have a Nespresso system then Belmio coffees are great for trying new flavours and impressing your guests over Christmas.
I have a 50 capsule assortment comprising 10 pods of each of the coffees mentioned above to give away – plenty to see you into the New Year to brighten those grey January days!
