Nespresso Capsules - The Difference Between Espresso & Lungo

Many of us are familiar with Espresso. Espresso forms the base and the heart & soul of coffee drinks. Many of us have ‘a shot of espresso’ or two (or three or more!!) in our coffee. a Lungo is slightly different, It is a longer coffee. Nespresso Machine extracts the coffee in the capsule based on your preference at a touch of a butten. Its that's easy.

Each Nespresso Coffee machine provide you with both Espresso and Lungo making facilities. Both these options will extract the flavor from Nespresso Coffee Pods under high pressure as it flows into your cup. Espresso would fill up one shot of coffee while Lungo would essentially fill up more of your cup – basically taking up a little more room. This process is what differentiates Lungo from Americano, which is an Italian style Coffee with Hot water added and a Long Black, where you add a short black directly to the hot water – basically the opposite of an Americano.

Common misconception is that Lungos are less intense than Espresso. But this is not the case. The strongest Espressos are more intense than the strongest Lungos, but the possible range of how mild or intense a roast is ultimately comes down to the coffee the capsule is produced from. On a scale of one to ten, Nespresso Lungo capsules have an intensity ranging from 2 to 7 – so you can already see that some of them are stronger in flavor than many regular Nespresso Espresso capsules.
