What Makes Italian Coffee & Espresso Unique?
Roasters must consider a series of complex variables that intertwine to produce optimal flavors, requiring a level of focus that makes coffee roasting as much an art as it is a science. Beans are often collected from different regions of the world, coming together to produce a unique combination of flavors. Much like a piping hot dinner is roasted to reveal full fruition of its flavors–coffee recipes develop their aromatic presence through roasting techniques designed to unfold specific levels of acidity, flavor profiles, and crema quality.
Italian roasted coffee evokes from these variables a unique character of depth. Italian culture has developed its love of espresso over the course of a century, built from the mastered craft of hundreds of Italian roasters and those devoted to these expansive flavors. Many roasters come to Italy in search of insight, and although great coffee can be made anywhere in the world–the rich vivid flavors of an authentic Italian espresso are known to many as a definitive experience in quality.
