Lungo Forte from Café René is a delicious, dark-roasted lungo made from Arabica and Robusta beans. This is a coffee for those who appreciate an intense flavour and unparalleled aroma.

Most types of coffee today are made from Arabica beans, but for an espresso-based coffee like this lungo, Robusta beans bring bitter notes, a high caffeine content, in delicious interplay with the sweeter and more fruity notes of Arabica beans.

This lungo is known for being extra strong in taste compared to a typical lungo, and with a caffeine content that is also at the higher end of the scale. The flavour and body are therefore reminiscent of a classic espresso. It comes with slightly acidic nuances, with a hint of citrus and chocolate.

Enjoy its darker tones and golden crema, while relaxing in the early morning or on a quiet afternoon break.

We deliver this powerful lungo from Café René at an attractive price, in pods that fit perfectly in your Dolce Gusto® machine.

Strong flavour and just the I like my coffee. Read More
Best coffee Ive had in a while Read More
Splendidly punchy with a full, rich flavour. Compares favourably with the big US chain coffee for strength and taste. Perfect to start the day. Read More
Excellent products at the fraction of the price of named brands. The flavour is intense but smooth. My partner tells me, it's like walking into a high end cafe when she enters the kitchen. I would definitely recommend this product. Read More
Très bon café prix intéressant Read More
Excellent customer service in as much as I was kept informed of delivery schedules etc, which was appreciated given the product comes from Denmark. However, hugely disappointed with the coffee, seems very weak compared to the original Dolce Gusto, even when made in a small cup to avoid over dilution. Read More
i enjoyed these, flavoursome with a kick Read More
First time tried this coffee lovely Read More
I bought a variety of coffee capsules, and the milk pods from this company. It is always a risk buying compatible capsules, but, without a doubt they are more flavoursome than the Dolce Gusto original ones. Each of the coffee capsules has a distinct flavour and the milk capsules are creamy and generate a nice froth. Compared to the originals, these are a better alternative. and will be buying from the company from now on. In addition, the despatch time is great! Read More
Not too pleased with this as 5 of the pods used so far haven't worked. I won't buy it again. Read More
Coffe is ok, but 50% of the pods burst during the preperation and water leaks all over. Read More
Nice strong flavour , thick crema , great price :) Read More
Ordered from Kaffekapslen on Sunday evening and by Friday the pods were here so fantastic delivery time to the UK. Really enjoyed these pods, they have a delicious almost nutty taste to them and I would recommend trying them. Read More
