Ice Forte Nespresso coffee (Delicious Coffee Beverage) Taste Test
I unboxed my Ice Forte Nespresso VertuoLine pods. It looked very nice. Their dark and light blue color was intermingled, and the pod looked amazing. It is a Vertuo pod, so I brewed it with my Nespresso VertuoPlus Deluxe machine. While brewing, it smelled wonderful. Once done, the drink had a thick layer of crema, and the color indicated it had an intensity of 6-7. When I smelled it, I got a woody and sweet scent. I took a sip and found that it was an excellent coffee cup. The woody and sweet notes danced on my palate, and I got a peppery aftertaste. The drink was good and well-balanced.
I brewed iced coffee with Ice Forte Nespresso VertuoLine capsules to find out how it works with ice. I filled the glass with ice and brewed Ice Forte coffee over it. I stirred it very well. When I tasted it, I came to know it had rich peppery notes and a bit of woody and tart (bitter) notes. I also felt hints of acidity across the middle of my tongue. Overall, it was a pretty good cup of coffee.
In another shot, I added ice and milk (oat milk) to the tall glass and brewed Nespresso Vertuo Ice Forte coffee over it. The drink looked lovely, with multiple layers of milk, coffee, etc. I mixed it and took a sip, I felt a bit of peppery taste, and the sweet notes graced my palate. The sweet notes reminded me of South American Arabicas. The drink had a decent flavor, and I liked it.
I also brewed the Ice Forte Vertuo pod differently. I added chocolate syrup and caramel sauce to the milk and frothed them. I added the frothed milk into the ice-filled glass and brewed the Ice Forte Vertuo pod over it. I took a sip, and I can say it was a lovely drink. The drink was sweet, creamy and best for summer.
