Roma Nespresso capsule and cup

With a title like Roma, a city where they don’t mess around with their espressos, Nespresso couldn’t afford delivering some wishy-washy blend and, as you would rightfully expect, this is a subtle, Italian-style coffee. With a slightly woody flavor and a high than average intensity, Roma is both smooth and dark, revealing slowly its moderate bitterness without leaving a too strong aftertaste.


  • Activities: Smooth and not too intrusive, the Roma capsule is your go to capsule for various occasions, from breakfast to working, reading and wrapping up lunch.
  • Music: Don’t’ worry, because it has Italian references doesn’t mean I will recommend Eros Ramazzotti here, rather going for smooth, charismatic tunes by Arcade Fire.
  • Food: Roma can be paired with a wide variety of foods as its taste isn’t too overpowering. Personally, I enjoy it with some simple toast and butter.
