A careful selection of fine coffees of the Arabica and Robusta species, coming from the best tropical crops in the world and roasted in an expert way respecting the Italian tradition.
From the roasting of seeds of some species of small tropical plants (belonging to the genus Coffea), and from their grinding, the coffee drink is obtained. Among the various types of species the most used are the Arabica and the Robusta.
The Arabica is native to Ethiopia, Sudan and Kenya and its use has ancient origins. The beans are recognized for their elongated and oval shape and have a lower caffeine concentration than the Robusta, its ideal habitat is the high altitude cultivation. The Arabica typically has a delicate flavor, with hints of acidity more or less pronounced and with intense aromatic sensations (appreciable especially in the best qualities).
The Robusta is one of the most cultivated species and is native to tropical Africa, between Guinea and Uganda, it adapts well to environmental conditions and is therefore of simple cultivation. The beans have a more rounded shape than the Arabica and have a more or less straight furrow in the center. The Robusta is typically vigorous, characterized by a sense of bitterness, and makes the drink dense.
