Get to know the Japanese coffee preference

And a new coffee capsule by this world-famous Swiss company

SPEAKING FOR THE JAPANESE Nespresso coffee ambassador Rika Ueno 

There are four clearly perceived seasons in Japan per year. The Japanese enjoy tasting the ingredients of each season. The sweetness of rice is a taste they have been used to since ancient times. “The Japanese appreciate the naturally sweet taste of rice,” explains Nespresso coffee ambassador Rika Ueno, “so it is difficult for us to accept the unpleasant acidity that low-quality coffee is thought to bring.”

It is the search for this preferred flavor that led the people of Japan to add milk to dark roast coffee. With the spread of coffee culture, caffeinated drinks became a beverage for the Japanese to enjoy as they relax.

In pursuit of the coffee taste and culture Japan is used to, Nespresso created World Explorations Tokyo Vivalto Lungo. Born from the Japanese coffee lover’s affinity for the hot drink, one can enjoy a natural bittersweet taste, refined roast flavor, delicate flowery notes, and lower acidity. It is a delightful surprise to the palate, capturing the essence of this exceptional profile with refined Ethiopian and Mexican Arabicas.

To maximize the new Tokyo Vivalto Lungo here are two coffee recipes.
