Among Gimoka capsules you will find all the coffee classics, and of course different Espressos of varying flavours and strengths.
With this variety 'Vellutato', you get an Espresso made from 100% Arabic beans from Columbia, Brazil and Honduras. The mixture of the different beans from the 3 countries together with a medium-dark roast has resulted in a fruity Espresso with great fullness, delicate sweetness and mild bitterness.
Vellutato, which means velvety soft, perfectly describes this Espresso. Too often you see Espresso blends that have been mixed with Robusta beans for a little extra edge and acidity. Here Gimoka has chosen to use only the milder Arabica bean, which has made the coffee’s body extra soft.
This is, in other words, a classic Italian Espresso, but with an extra mild and (velvet) soft body.
In the package, you receive 50 Nespresso Pro® compatible capsules, so you have more than enough to offer an extra cup when you have guests.
Gimoka is an Italian coffee producer that can trace its origins back to the early 1980s. Based in Andalo Valtellino, Lombardy, the company is one of Italy's leading coffee roasters with exports to over 50 countries.

I felt the own branded coffee was nice, but expensive for what it was. Thought I'd try my luck at a box half the price.
It did not disappoint!!
When it arrived however, I panicked. It said strength "8". Given 10 is the strongest I thought I'd been sent the wrong one! But looking back on the website it said 6/10 for strength. With it being the 100% arabica beans, it's much smoother and lighter than those blended with robust (and the likes).
Really very impressed! Read More
