Firstly, hit this link and come straight back to continue reading. That sound takes us straight back to Italy, the type of song you would hear in a cafe there, in Milan even. We paired this tune with a coffee we haven’t tasted in years. The moment was lovely.
Many years ago Nespresso ran a limited edition release of three Italian varieties in their capsule range. Milano was one of them and we’ve missed it ever since. The 2017 release of Milano is fantastic to see and the taste, well, it’s great to see it return.
Nespresso describe the Milano as “a delightful balance between fine fruity aromas and a sweet cereal note.” We just think it tastes like good coffee, a smooth blend which works wonderfully straight, black and strong.
The intensity rating from Nespresso is 9, the Milano is made from a blend of Arabicas from South and Central America and is reinforced with a Guatemalan Robusta. The Milano is available for order now, again in a limited run, for 93 cents each. Enjoy the rest of that song…
Living in Sydney his entire life, Geoff has always had a close eye on technology. Through school and immediately after, tech held his focus. Attending University later in life, Geoff began his IT career immediately after leaving high school and has been in the industry ever since. In his spare time he launched a YouTube channel focused on consumer tech that had millions of views. This led to work on community radio talking tech every week and has now stepped him into the studios of 2GB / 4BC every Saturday helping people with tech problems and reviewing the latest gadgets.
When Geoff is looking away from the screen he can be found holding a glass of red wine, spending time with friends and/or watching the Formula 1.
