Winter Blends: Christmas in Italy
1 -100% Arabica Centopercento – Caffe Mauro
First on the list, here is a 100% Arabica blend from Central and South America roasted by the iconic Italian roasting company, Caffè Mauro.
I know I keep on talking about Italian-style coffees but I like playing it safe ;)
If, like me, you love a powerful coffee with a syrupy texture, these Centopercento coffee beans are perfect for you! You’ll discover a strong coffee with subtle notes of ripe red fruits and cocoa. Ideal as an espresso, ristretto or as a base for cappuccino or a latte!
2 – Pellini Top: for an Intense Coffee
After mentionning Caffè Mauro, it would be hard to miss Pellini Top when talking about Italian roasts. This coffee comes from Verona in Italy and is ideal served with milk: as a Cappuccino, a Latte, or a Macchiato! The typical bitterness of Italian dark roasts are here smoothed by milk offering chocolatey notes and a balanced cup.
