This Italian style roast is great for espresso and stovetops. The triple blend draws on powerhouse coffees from Colombia, Ethiopia and Papua New Guinea to create a rich, full bodied, classic cup.
A classic Italian style coffee, this blend combines Colombian, Ethiopian and Papua New Guinean Arabicas. The Colombian provides a rich, syrup body while the Ethiopian and Papua New Guinean beans offer floral aromatics and beautiful berry notes. Designed expressly for the espresso, this coffee also presents a superb cup through a stovetop or plunger.
The Body & Brightness Profiles:
When you first taste a coffee, you should first assess its body or mouth feel and also just how acidic or bright it is. You may like a coffee that has a whole lot of body but with low acidity. Or you may like a mellower mouth feel but a brighter acidity. It really is a personal preference, there is no right or wrong.
Espresso has good bold body and a mellow brightness.
The Flavour Profiles:
What sets each individual coffee apart will be the flavours or what we call the “tasting notes”. The tasting notes are many and varied ranging from floral to nutty, spicy to berry, chocolaty to citrusy, just to name a few. These flavours make each coffee very different and so special. Where the coffee is grown, climate, elevation, soil type and harvesting techniques will all impact on the flavour so unique to each coffee.
Espresso releases dark caramel, cocoa and toffee notes.
