Espresso is made from a blend of several types of coffee.
Italian espresso, by definition and by tradition, is obtained from a skilful blend of coffees with different origins, indispensable to achieve that rich, characteristic aroma and velvety consistency for which it is renowned. The perfect espresso is a feast for the eyes, with the creamy head ranging from hazelnut to dark brown with reddish tinges. Its intense aroma presents distinct notes of flowers, fruit, toasted bread and chocolate, while its full-flavoured taste is round and velvety, with a perfect balance of acid and bitter; sour notes should be practically absent. The overall sensory perceptions generated by coffee-based drinks are divided up into four categories: sight, smell, taste and touch.
Espresso: a gift for the senses.
