Fortission is a pretty strong lungo, making it feel like a long espresso, rather than just a simple lungo. It has a light texture, a burn flavor, a strong and slightly bitter aftertaste. It’s a bit rough for a lungo, which makes it a prime lungo choice for dark espresso lovers.
- Activities: A good way to wake you up and start the day with a caffeine kick. This is definitely the kind of coffee you will pay attention to and I would suggest following it with a lighter capsule.
- Music: Because it’s intense and dark, it works well with Interpol’s tortured tunes.
- Food: Something sweet like chocolaty cereals.
