Dharkan’s long roast could easily chisel away the flavor gems locked inside the bean. And a long search led us to a few Arabicas born to deliver this incredible intensity despite the heat. We found them in Java and we found them in Costa Rica.
We found coffees in a few other Latin American countries - all with this in common, they grow below 1400 meters.
The stronger sun of these lower altitudes causes the coffee trees to develop more lipids in the fruit - it’s the tree’s natural sunscreen, and it also protects the bean during those long roasts.
This Arabica coffee blend is roasted at low temperatures for a long time
- that gives the Dharkan espresso the roasted, toasted cereal notes, the low acidity, and the pleasant bitterness you often only taste in a Robusta.
When you go beneath the surface with the Nespresso Dharkan you uncover an evolving
complexity - a dusty cocoa powder bitterness that lingers long and is elegantly velvety on your tongue.
