Italian roasted blend with sweet, chocolate and nutty notes.
The Italian Blend has been roasted with a good combination of strength and flavour. Our coffee roaster says this blend is roasted to derive its natural sweetness. A popular option for espresso or a rich filter with those that buy coffee online and in our retail store. Our coffee roaster alternates between this and the Meebz Blend as they are both a similar roast degree but with different flavours.
A good balance of strength and flavour. A good body with nutty and chocolate tones. It exhibits flavours of sweet plum and prune.
Recipe (commercial espresso machine):
Espresso Brew Ratio: 1:2.1
Extraction Time: 30-35 seconds.
This means that for every gram of ground coffee dosed into the porta-filter there is 2.1 grams of coffee extracted. If using and dosing with an 18g porta-filter you can extract approximately 38-grams of liquid (coffee). Still stuck?

Where it’s from:
This blend is a four bean blend with a South American base to give the coffee its big bold body and chocolate notes. Central American and Ethiopian beans are added that give this blend its distinctive character and sweet flavours. All origins are ethically sourced and picked based on their quality, consistency and flavour characteristics. As this blend is predominantly used in espresso we have chosen a base with a heavy mouth feel and flavour characteristics that will minimise bitterness.
