Subject: Looking for espresso bean simliar or equivalent to Nespresso Arpeggio capsule
 

The arpeggio is a very cocoa nutty flavor that is very, very smooth and rich.  It does not have a hint of bitterness or sourness to it and on the nespresso scale, it is a 9 out of 10.  It is 100% arabica from central and south america.

I have a super automatic saeco and I'm looking for a similar bean to use and, obviously, it needs to be not-so-oily.

I make primarily cappucinos but the wife makes an americano out of a single shot.  Either way, I want it strong and she wants it weaker so we have to settle for middle-of-the road.  She complains that the coffees I like are "sour" and that is different than "bitter".  She equates the term bitter with being overly strong.

I've been told Lavazza Qualita Oro is what I'm looking for but it's out of stock most places.  Any other suggestions to try that are reasonably priced like the Lavazza beans?
