Barista Scuro Nespresso capsule review and cup

Being a fan of mocha – besides espresso of course – I find this espresso macchiato drink made with Barista Scuro capsule quite satisfying because of its hint of cocoa and roasted feel that brings some roughness. Also with an intensity of 8, it is strong enough to provide some caffeine kick and, contrary to the underwhelming Barista Chiaro, this coffee is able to speak for itself rather than let the milk talk.


  • Activities: Good for breakfast, finishing lunch or for morning breaks.
  • Music: The National’s dark melodic tunes prove to be a good match for this espresso macchiato drink.
  • Food: You need something that’s both sweet and can match the chocolate flavor like French brioche with Nutella spread.
