Notes from the roaster:
We were getting requests for a traditional Italian style espresso. This made us nervous as cheap Italian espresso blends can be bitter from over roasting and cheap robusta.
So we set about making a much higher quality version, an elegant modern interpretation in the Dark Woods style.
The blend starts with speciality arabicas from South America and India. Finally, we add in the very best quality robusta from the award-winning Harley Estate in India. It’s just mid roast resulting in a smooth rich bodied espresso that will make people reassess this style.
