The brand “Nespresso” is already synonymous with providing the finest coffee experiences. So why should decaffeinated coffee moments be any different? The coffee experts at Nespresso took the three most popular Grands Crus – one Intenso, Espresso and Lungo and created decaffeinated mirror images specially for you when you don’t wanna get to excited before bed time. This means that you can extend your Nespresso pleasure any time of the day or night.
Each Nespresso Grand Cru has what is known as its own sensory profile. This profile comprises a set of specific characteristics that include qualities such as intensity, bitterness, roastiness, acidity and aroma. What Nespresso experts have been able to do with this launch is ensure that the caffeinated and decaffeinated blends of the respective Grands Crus share the same sensory profiles which is a very special feat in the world of coffee and ensures the same moments of pleasure can be enjoyed with or without caffeine.
Dark roasted and rich in flavour, Arpeggio Decaffeinato boasts the same strong character, intense body and indulgent cocoa notes as the original Arpeggio Grand Cru. The split roasting reveals the specificities of each origin: longer roasting yields a darker bean and releases the intense, cocoa-like flavours of the Brazilian and Costa Rican Arabicas; a shorter and lighter roasting of the selected Arabica from South America highlights its softer fruity notes.

Delightfully sweet and smooth, Volluto Decaffeinato has the same rich flavours and round body as the original Volluto Grand Cru. The selected pure Arabica beans are roasted separately to highlight their specificities: a shorter roast unfolds the sweet biscuity notes of the Brazilian Arabica, while longer but lighter roast preserves fresh and fruity notes of the Colombian beans. Intensity 4
Vivalto Lungo Decaffeinato
A complex yet balanced blend, Vivalto Lungo Decaffeinato has the same rich character as the original Vivalto Lungo Grand Cru: roasted, lightly woody with sweet cereal and subtle floral notes. It is a pure Arabica blend from several origins including South America and East Africa. Separate roasting of the beans brings out the characters of the different origins and develops the complexity of the flavour: a shorter and lighter roast preserves the subtle flowery bouquet of the Ethiopian beans and the fruity notes of the Colombian, while a darker and longer roast reinforces the character of the blend and develops its bitterness.
