When it’s time for a stronger tasting coffee let the Lungo Intenso take you away. This ‘long coffee’, an espresso made with a little more hot water, is created with an intense coffee pod that has more bite than the regular Lungo blend - but all of the classic taste.


With a classic layer of crema swirled over its surface, the Lungo Intenso marries a delicate aroma with a full-bodied taste experience. The ideal companion to breakfast as well as a tasty drink throughout the day, this is way more than you’ll find in an instant coffee.


Its deep colour, enticing aroma and lingering aftertaste are brought out expertly by your NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® machine, bringing you an unmissable coffee-drinking experience at home time and time again. A great option to have on hand for visitors who like their coffee strong, our Lungo Intenso coffee pod drinks are an indispensable part of a varied coffee pod selection.


Intensity 9 out of 11


Each box contains 16 coffee pods designed for NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® coffee pod machines, for allowing you to prepare 16 cups of Lungo Intenso.


If you want to add some pizazz to your everyday coffee experience, bring out the style in your Lungo Intenso by serving in one of our Iconic Porcelain Lungo Cups. We think the stylish design makes our coffee look as striking as it tastes.



Simply slide your Lungo Intenso coffee pod into your NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® machine. Your coffee will be ready right away.



With our hermetically sealed coffee pods, which preserve the fresh coffee taste , you’ll enjoy rich aromatic cups every time.



Create professional quality coffees with a thick velvety crema, thanks to the coffee pod machine’s high pressure (up to 15 bars).



With NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto®, you can enjoy over 50 premium coffee creations, whether you like your coffee short or long, black or white. Enjoy a choice of bold Ristretto, intense Espresso, aromatic Lungo and full-bodied Grande or frothy Cappuccino, smooth Latte Macchiato, or even hot chocolate, teas, and cold beverages.

Wake up call

It picks me up and never lets me down

Review by MICHAEL (Posted on 19/04/2020)
Big, bold and intense!

Morning, 5.30am, our two cats start to wake up. Me, very asleep! What is tickling my face? Why is someone drilling for oil in our bedroom? Why is my face being sandpapered? I start to wake up and open my eyes. One cat is giving my face a wash with her sandpaper tongue and the other is purring so loudly, 2 cm from my ear, that I thought he was drilling for oil. I get up, have a quick wash and go downstairs to feed them. Happy cats eating their breakfast, but my brain is not working yet. Turn the coffee machine on and reach for the Lungo Intenso. It's a nine, a caffeine hit awaits. In the machine the "POP" sound means that the pod is burst and the dark rich liquid starts to pour out. The smell is amazing, my brain starts to wake up. Some gurgling and my Intense caffeine hit is waiting. A quick sip, hot, smokey, delicious. More brain cells waking up. I savour it, slowly taking small sips to make it last longer. The aroma is as good as the taste, I bring it to my nose and inhale. Another caffeine hit. After 5 minutes of ecstasy the caffeine has reached maximum and my favourite drink has sadly gone. The cats are now asleep on my lap, I'm savouring the lingering rich coffee taste on my tongue, I'm very happy. A wonderful. way to start my day.

Good, strong coffee

Great taste, good aroma and strength. I usually have it in a double-espresso size cup.

What Intenso

I've been enjoying the Essenza di Moka as my regular early morning coffee but sadly it's been discontinued so thought I'd give this a try. I have previously tried the Lungo but was very disappointed. Unfortunately this is not much better. It's no better than an upmarket instant coffee. It lacks depth and leaves a horrible dry taste in the mouth. I'll be putting the machine back in the cupboard and getting the grinder out.

A rich,dark,deep,robust and intense one,this will be my morning kick start coffee,a great hit to start the day..as i like a little milk,zapped a small amount in the microwave then ran the coffee in it,fantastic stronger one.

My favourite

If I had to choose just one pod, Lungo Intenso would be it. I have one large coffee a day and this it is. Bold but not harsh/bitter. On the days I don't have time for a large coffee, it's good to have Grande - sooo smooth. It's good to have a choice though. Thank you DG.

Really good coffee

Review by Manuel (Posted on 09/08/2016)
excellent product

excellent taste, aroma and just the right amount of crema. I take mine with milk, but drink it straight also

The Goldilocks coffee (not too short and not too long)

My favourite; just right for after lunch.

Review by Jonathan (Posted on 13/03/2015)
My favourite so far

I have tried quite a view of the different varieties but this one is the favourite one that I keep going back to - it is full of flavour without being bitter, and perfect with just a little milk.
