1. Il Piacere Coffee capsules Espresso Pods / Coffee Capsules Origin and Taste:

Origin: An "Italian Style" coffee blend sourced from Brazil, Ethiopia and Asia.

Taste: Perfumed with exquisite floral fragrances, its powerful palate is paired with tastes of milk chocolate pralines. This sublime composition, is favored by baristas, and leads to an intense feeling of pleasure. The nespresso compatible coffee pods are roasted at the altitude of 1000 meter in the SWISS mountains.

High altitude roasting in the Swiss mountains: Roasting at an altitude of 1000 meters allows the bean to flourish at a temperature which does not affect its essential aroma or flavors. The atmospheric pressure being lower at high altitude than at sea level, boiling occurs at a lower temperature. This physical property acts favorably on the quality of the coffees of La Semeuse, which are distinguished by their subtle power, their lack of bitterness and acidity.

Coffee can be served with milk or cream:
Coffee can be enjoyed as is (black coffee), or mixed with milk or cream. It is frequently sweet, and sometimes we add chocolate or spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom to it. Iced coffee drinks have recently spread, but it is usually served hot. The taste for coffee isn’t spontaneous, it must be cultivated, for its flavor is strong.

Among the most popular types of coffee drinks, we can mention:

  • latte coffee, or caffè latte, obtained by mixing a volume of milk for a volume of coffee
  • latte macchiato (spotted milk) which differs from caffe latte in that this drink contains more milk in liquid form and in the form of foam
  • coffee coffee, a coffee in which you add a little cream or a cloud of milk; In French-speaking Switzerland, coffee with added milk is called "reversed"
  • the hazelnut, an espresso coffee in which one adds a cloud of milk
  • cappuccino, an espresso on which milk froth is placed, usually sprinkled with cocoa powder
  • chocolate coffee, a coffee in which you melt an equal volume of chocolate
  • Liège coffee, a cold drink with coffee and ice cream
  • Irish coffee, an alcoholic drink prepared with a volume of whiskey for three volumes of coffee
  • the Viennese coffee, or espresso con panna, a preparation consisting of a fairly light elongated espresso, to which hot milk with whipped cream is added, and like cappuccino, the Viennese coffee is embellished with chocolate powder or sprinkles.

4. Storage Advice:

Unlike conventional food, coffee does not have an expiration date, it is more about the deadline for an optimal use (best before date) after which the taste quality begins decreasing. For full enjoyment of La Semeuse coffee's distinctive taste qualities – body, aroma, flavour – we recommend a Best Before date. Past the Best Before date, coffee taste qualities gradually lose strength.

Coffee storage:

  • In an airtight box or a perfectly closed hermetic bag
  • Protected from light and moisture and at room temperature (avoid extreme hot / cold temperatures)
  • For longer storage, the freezer may be an option
