COFFEE'S FINEST QUALITIES, IN A TINY CUP
Sweetness, bitterness, acidity, citrusy hints. Vibrant notes of chocolate and caramel, spicy scents, an aftertaste of dried fruit, almond, vanilla. A little cup of true Italian espresso has more than 800 different aromas. A few sips which divulge stories of faraway lands, of ancient, unique traditions, of skilful hands and rigorous processes that create this tiny masterpiece of flavours, sensations and perfumes.
The word espresso does not indicate a particular quality of coffee bean or a special kind of roast, but a method of brewing ground roasted coffee. This typically Italian coffee-making method is absolutely unique because it succeeds, more than any other, in highlighting and enhancing the characteristics and qualities of the coffee blend, magically revealing its aromas and evoking its origins, journey and history.
A symbol of Italian culture that is loved the world over and still has much to say.
