Dark, intense and with wonderful aromas of hazelnut and liquorice, Ristretto Ardenza takes the classic espresso to another level. A little shorter, Ristretto is made by passing less water through the coffee. What this means is that you get a short, robust espresso that has a smoky aroma with a deliciously peppery aftertaste. Our Ristretto Ardenza pod coffee is our most intense coffee capsule drink yet, so if you love the full-bodied taste of a bold espresso, this one is definitely worth a try.


Also known as ‘corto’, Italian for ‘short’, Ristretto Ardenza is definitely proof that good things come in small packages. As well as a wonderfully woody character with a bold, hazlenutty taste, these punchy espressos are also topped with a silky layer of crema thanks to the maximum 15-bar pump pressure in our stylish machines. The colour of caramel, the delicious crema is frothy, rich and helps give your espresso pod coffee a high quality taste, just as you would expect from a coffee shop.


An online exclusive, Ristretto Ardenza is an espresso pod coffee not to be missed. Elegant and robust, we think that they’re best served in an espresso cup that presents the irresistible layers of your masterpiece at their best.


And if you’re looking for a delicious ristretto espresso, but with a slightly less intense aroma, our Ristretto coffee capsule drinks might be just what you’re after.

It's even stronger than Barista!

Barista is my favourite pod but Ristretto Ardenza is just as tasty with a bit more kick to it. I drink Espresso with some frothy skimmed milk as the pods are strong enough to make a longer 150 - 200 ml drink.

After trying this one you wont want any other Espresso, it is full boddied and smooth lots of flavour

Intense and one simply amazing.

This is a short intense coffee and I make sure I always have it in stock. This coffee is as good as any of the high street chains but at a fraction of the cost. Add a dash of warm milk and you have a cortado, or a bit more milk to get a late or flat white. A great coffee!

Lovely taste of Italy

Just close your eyes and you will be in Rome, MIlan or Firenze. Many thanks, Dolce Gusto! Best expresso ever! <3

Top taste

I like espresso for the flavour and not the buzz. This has by far the most intense flavour I have come across so far

Simply The Best

The smoothest, tastiest and richest coffee they do. It's a must have for any coffee lover!

Review by David (Posted on 14/03/2015)

Out of all the Dolce Gusto pods this one when added to milk (to make a latte) or drunk as an espresso is most like the costa coffee...I would recommend!
