What makes this so good:
There are some subtle differences between Nespresso and proper espresso coffee.
*Nespresso® uses only 5.5 grams of coffee per espresso whereas proper espresso uses 7-9 grams of ground coffee - coffee blends produced for *Nespresso® need to be stronger and able to eploit more of the ground coffee to deliver that authentic espresso experience.
Proper espresso is made using freshly ground coffee to maximise freshness and flavour - coffee loses flavour over time - even faster once it has been ground. *Nespresso® capsules are filled with ground coffee and then may not be used for weeks, months, or years - coffee blends produced for *Nespresso® need to have suffcient flavour and body to produce espresso weeks, months, or years after the coffee has been ground.
This is the skill, quality, and craftsmanship required to be able to produce a great quality *Nespresso® capsule. *Nespresso® do a great job of producing coffee blends for the *Nespresso® system.
Where most *Nespresso® compatible capsules fall short is that they use a coffee blend designed for proper espresso (7-9 grams of coffee freshly ground) resulting in a weak and underwhelming result - there is not enough ground coffee to produce a good crema and the blend is designed for fresh consumption. Often the crema may be flat and lacking body - you may need two capsules for a descent coffee.
This is where MOKITO is excellent. MOKITO have taken great care to develop the Intenso blend to deliver that authentic espresso experience from your *Nespresso® machine. The Intenso blend has been expertly crafted to deliver an intense and full bodied espresso using the standard *Nespresso® 5.5 grams of coffee. State of the art packaging equipment is used to create individually sealed *Nespresso® compatible capsules that maximise flavour.

The story of Mokito Milano begins in 1931, when Daniele De Bei founded ICAM (Import of Arabic Mokito Coffee). Deeply rooted in Milan, Mokito has always been a reference for Northern Italy. In the 1940s espresso coffee machines started to become common on the counters of Italian bars, restaurants, and cafes. Since then, Mokito’s goal has been to provide the best blends of high-quality coffee for Italian style espresso.
MOKITO believes in quality espresso - this quality comes from high standards, tireless work, and an innovative use of technology - combined with over seventy years of coffee rosting tradition and four generations of master roasters.
