not so flavoursome

Nothing can compare with the full flavour of my favourite LUNGO INTENSO

Mild but nutty

This has a nice mild flavour, and a subtle nuttiness about it. Its not a strong coffee, so might not be for you if you only like heavy bitter drinks.

no matter how much or little water i put with it, it always tasted woody aswell as having an awful aftertaste which took forever to get rid of! used 5 pods out of the box just to make sure and they all went down the drain! and the rest of the box went in the bin, it was such a disappointment!

lovely taste

I preffer weaker coffee and this one has a lovely smooth taste and smell, for me it's better than any other I tried. I am ordering again.

Fine drink if made correctly

Looked at the reviews of this coffee after I bought a box, so thought I may have a problem (I hate bitter coffee) When I had brewed it I took a sip and yes could understand comments of bitterness, but - Once I had added sugar and frothed milk it was absolutely lovely. Just the right taste and strength and no bitter aftertaste, so for all of you who have complained - try again as I have, adding sugar and milk to taste.

Not very nice.

This was a big disapointment compared to my usual grande intenso or lungo intenso. Having learned from my mistake I wont be buying another box.

Not good

Very weak if you follow the instructions for capacity (300ml) and not a good coffee flavour, kind of burnt taste but the weakness confuses it. It's hard to describe but tastes a bit like nescafe instant, which anyone who has worked in an office will know is the worst coffee in the world. Tastes particularly bad if you add milk, unlike most of the other americano derivatives.

Preludio Sample

I received a sample of Preludio pods but was most disappointed. I found it weak, even made with less water than recommended, and in addition it was bitter tasting. I'll stick to Americano or Grande Intenso in future.

I was looking forward to trying this new coffee, the marketing was good, but sadly this is probably the poorest coffee I have tried in my Dolce Gusto machine. It lacks taste and strength, even varying the amount of water does not help. Disappointed.
