The word “classic” sums this one up pretty well. Close your eyes and imagine yourself at an outdoor table on the streets of Rome (watch out for that Vespa!). I shot the photo used with this product on the streets of Rome, in fact, and this blend takes me back to that place. Good body, nice crema. Pungent flavor profile will stand up to milk in milk-based espresso drinks. Not bitter as one finds with Illy, however. I finish mine in the northern Italian style… full city , not what most Americans would identify as a “dark” roast. I recommend four days rest post-roast on this one, so if you buy it locally, look at the roast date.
Note that on this blend I do occasionally change out the inputs from time to time, based on the best of what’s available at that time.
