Hi! I’ve been testing out the decaf versions of Nespresso capsules, especially the ones that have the intensity 4. Because I’m not really a fan of higher intensity Nespressos as they taste more bitter than others and can make you super jittery, I decided to give the decaffeinated versions a try, or better known as The Nespresso Decaffeinato capsules.
The Decaffeinated ones have two types; the ones with intensity 4 and the ones that are way darker and have an intensity of 7-9. I picked the two intensity 4 and one of them should be served in Lungo size to achieve the right kind of intensity. Also, the Decaffeinato pods are marked with red dots at the bottom.
Volluto Decaffeinato – Intensity 4. Sweet and Light. Has exactly the same ingredients are the original Espresso Volluto Capsule, but roasted differently. Though they both have the same Intensity, their preparation varies slightly. Of all the decafs, this is my most favorite.
Vivalto Lungo Decaffeinato – Intensity 4. Complex and Balanced. This decaf capsule needs to be prepared in Lungo size and it has a subtle and some sort of floral base. It is indeed light but it doesn’t have the sweet property of the Volluto Decaffeinato above. However, it’s not bitter, just a well-balanced decaffeinated coffee.
I decided not to try the higher intensity Decafs as most likely I won’t be able to drink them anyway. Usually, most high-intensity Nespresso pods require a brave heart to give it a try. 🙂
If you like coffee, but don’t want too much caffeine, try these two instead. They’re light enough to not make you jittery, but they’re good enough for a quick pick me up. 🙂
You can buy these HERE.
Happy Wednesday! Stay tuned for the next review…
