Hi there, I’m back with my reviews of Nespresso Vertuo-compatible coffee pods, and this time I am reviewing Melozio.
I hope you’ve been reading my Nespresso Vertuo coffee pod reviews and will continue to stay on these roads with me. It’s truly a rewarding journey to be on!
Nespresso has carved a niche for itself in the world of coffee with its wide range of coffee pods, each catering to diverse palates and preferences. Among their offerings, the Nespresso Melozio coffee pods stand out as a captivating blend that combines depth and balance.
So without wasting more time, let me share my thoughts on Nespresso Melozio with you!
What is Nespresso Melozio?
Nespresso Melozio is a lyrical blend of Brazilian and Central American Arabica beans that gives you a well-balanced cup that’s nice and mildly sweet with just a hint of bitterness. It’s one of the many Nespresso Vertuo coffee pod varieties that delight coffee lovers all over the world.
My Nespresso Vertuo machine automatically brews a whole mug (7.77oz or 230ml) Melozio since it’s the best way to savor this aromatic coffee.
The coffee blend is packed in recyclable aluminum pods that are environment-friendly and also keep your coffee fresh for longer. Each capsule contains 12.5 grams of roasted and ground coffee.
Nespresso Melozio Flavor Profile
The Nespresso Melozio coffee pods are a harmonious symphony of flavors that cater to those seeking a well-rounded and approachable cup of coffee. It boasts a medium roast profile that strikes a beautiful balance between mild sweetness and subtle bitterness.
The dominant notes are that of honeyed cereal grains from the Brazilian coffee beans of the Bourbon type. For a perfectly rounded coffee experience, Central American Arabica beans are added to the blend.
With hints of toasted nuts, Melozio’s flavor profile ensures that it’s an ideal choice for those who prefer a coffee that isn’t overly bold but still offers complexity and depth.
Add milk to Nespresso Melozio for a delightful softer and sweeter experience with marked biscuity notes.
Nespresso Melozio Caffeine Content
One mug of coffee made with a Nespresso Melozio capsule contains about 170 milligrams of caffeine. This is about 70 milligrams more than you would have in an average 8-ounce cup of coffee.
I just enjoyed a cup of Melozio before starting to write this review. At this point, I can definitely feel the caffeine kicking and my fingers are starting to move faster on the keyboard!
Want even more caffeine?
Then consider buying Melozio Boost capsules that have about 20% more caffeine than the regular ones.
And if you want to avoid caffeine, then go for the Melozio Decaffeinato capsules.
Nespresso Melozio Features
From bold and bitter to sweet and smooth, you can get a wide range of flavor profiles with Nespresso Vertuo coffee pods. But how would you know if Nespresso Melozio is right for you?
Well, let’s delve into its features.
The Melozio blend is a fusion of South American and Central American Arabica beans.
Brazilian Bourbon Arabica beans are known for their sweet taste and cereal, biscuity notes. The pulped natural process is used to process these beans. In their semi-washed state, the Brazilian Bourbon beans taste even sweeter.
The Central American Arabica beans have a nutty undertone. When these are blended to create Nespresso Vertuo Melozio coffee pods, the result is a sweet and subtle coffee blend with a slightly nutty and mild taste.
The subtle bitterness complements the blend’s sweet notes without overpowering them. With 2 out of 5 on the bitterness scale, Nespresso Melozio is mildly bitter and mostly sweet.
I feel like this coffee is for a coffee pause at work. But I could also enjoy it on days when I want to take a break from the regular routine and just sit back, relax, and count all the blessings in my life.
The acidity is present but mellow, adding brightness without being too tangy.
Scoring only 1 out of 5 on the acidity scale, Nespresso Melozio has mild acidity. This makes the Melozio blend an excellent choice for those who appreciate a coffee that’s neither overly sharp nor overly bitter.
Nespresso strikes a masterful balance with the medium roast level of 3 for the Melozio blend. This roast level allows the coffee to preserve the inherent characteristics of the beans while still extracting enough flavors to create a well-defined taste profile.
The split-roasting method allows the Brazilian Bourbon beans to bring out the cereal and sweet notes, while the Central American beans are lightly roasted to provide a nutty undertone and a rounded cup.
The Melozio blend boasts a medium-bodied profile that’s luxurious and satisfying on the palate.
Scoring 3 out of 5 on the body scale, it offers a body that is well-balanced, with a creamy and smooth mouthfeel that’s neither too heavy nor too light.
In terms of intensity, the Melozio blend leans slightly towards the milder end of the spectrum at 6 on a scale of 13. This means that it falls almost in the middle of the range, and is neither too weak nor too strong.
It’s a coffee that can be enjoyed throughout the day, whether you’re seeking a morning pick-me-up or an afternoon indulgence.
If you’re looking for a bit more intense coffee pod with stronger woody and earthy notes, read my review on Nespresso Fortado.
The finish of the Melozio coffee is clean and lingering, making each sip a pleasurable experience.
The honeyed notes from the cereal grains and the nutty undertones remain on the palate, leaving a delightful aftertaste that’s both comforting and inviting.
To truly appreciate the nuances of the Melozio blend, it is best enjoyed as a black coffee or with a splash of milk.
That’s why the perfect portion size is a 230 ml or 7.8-oz mug size. This portion size allows the flavors to develop and unfold, giving you the chance to savor the blend’s sweetness, mild bitterness, and delicate acidity.
If you want just an espresso shot instead of a whole mug of coffee, try Nespresso Voltesso for a light and sweet espresso experience.
Nespresso Melozio comes at a price of $12.50 in a sleeve of 10 pods. You can also get a pack of 3 sleeves for $37.50.
However, the price may vary depending on the country, market, and the retailer.
Nespresso Melozio Review Conclusion
The Nespresso Melozio coffee pods offer a delightful journey through a smooth and well-balanced flavor profile that highlights the best qualities of Arabica beans from South and Central America.
Its medium roast, moderate bitterness, subtle acidity, and full body make it an excellent choice for coffee enthusiasts who appreciate a harmonious cup without extreme intensities.
