WHY WE LIKE IT
This is the perfect coffee for those looking for a classic taste. The tasting notes remind us of granola with hazelnuts: a perfect after-meal or breakfast flavour. At the end it has a taste similar to roasted apple. It is an ideal coffee to drink on its own or with milk, as an espresso or as a filter.
You can prepare it in your Italian coffee machine or if you have an espresso machine:

STORY BEHIND THIS COFFEE
The Primavera Family lot was created from 10-15 producers who are improving their quality, but this year were not strong enough to stand on their own. We decided to buy the coffee to give them the opportunity to use the extra income they receive from selling at a higher price to re-invest in their farm and wet mills. We hope that, with some improvements, next year they will produce wonderful coffees that can be presented as single origin coffees.
We are constantly working with our producers to help them improve the quality and therefore the price of their coffees. For this lot, we bought 84 and 85 point coffees to create a high quality and affordable blend. This regional lot is unlike anything you will see on the market as it has full transparency and traceability to each producer.
VARIETY AND PROCESS
The process for this coffee is washed, which consists of completely removing the mucilage from the bean, and leaving it to ferment in water tanks for 12-18 hours before leaving it to dry in the sun.
