This blend bears the signature of the founder, Domenico Barbera, handed down from generation to generation.
This very old recipe was revived reverting to Barbera’s original, historical raw coffee bean blend, recalling the early spread of coffee in Europe and the world. The original Arabica variety, carefully and skilfully selected, is blended with the pleasantly full-bodied Robusta variety to reobtain that long-lost aroma. The blend is characterized by a rich, intense aroma with sweet, elegant floral, nutty and honey notes.
The crema of the fine, compact texture gives good body and a pleasant, particularly persistent aftertaste. After roasting and mixing the blend is processed in three different formats. In beans, with slow roasting to bring out the aromas of a high-quality coffee, thanks to the perfect, top quality beans used, ready for professional use. Ground, in an elegant tin with a clip, a real collector’s item, with a fine grind and medium intensity roasting to obtain the most from the traditional moka coffee-pot. In capsules, where the traditional blend meets modernity and advanced technology in making an espresso.
