I never drink their nespresso capsules but their espresso in their outlets are all darkroast in singapore, and done in a way to make it even more bitter.

I believe their's are also with a lot of Robusta. Robusta produces nice crema and has a very thick body. Bad thing is 90% of the robusta out there taste very nasty. There are good ones that taste almost like Arabica and maintain the same trait with thick body though.
wow you're the connoisseur! peifu peifu! i only go by the taste, maybe u can try the starbucks capsules sometime and see whether u like or not? šŸ˜¬ expert advice always appreciated.

My 1kg of good dark roast can pull max 140 espressos.
1 espresso is about 7g of coffee. Nespresso only use 5.5g.

My amdk staffs and neighbours all like to come into my pantry and take all my coffee
1KG $26, so about 20 cents a shot.

My staff all don't wfh, come back office yolo one. :(
I default 19 gram in 38gram out lol. Tat is my 1 shot

I see Starbucks sell pure arabica beans before, i bought some to try, tbh they were like 1/10. :(

Vacuum container, standard practice.

1) 1kg beans come put 50% in freezer.
2) store all in vacuum container
