Starbucks by Nespresso Original-Line Pike Place Pod Taste Test

I found these pods on the Starbucks store but bought them from Amazon. I unboxed my Starbucks by Nespresso Original-Line Pike Place pod, which had a greenish-teal color. It was compatible with Nespresso Original-Line machines, so I brewed it (only one pod) with my Pixie machine. My 3.7 oz drink had a pleasant aroma. I took a sip and found it smooth. The rich chocolatey, and nutty notes hit my palate. The bit of bitter notes touched the tip of my tongue and made my cup enjoyable. It is a drink that you can enjoy any time of the day. I also felt an earthy flavor in my strong cup. It was a good coffee cup.
