Every cup of coffee has a tale to tell. An intriguing tale that begins with the growing and picking of coffee beans in very diverse countries and parts of the world. From these countries the coffee then travels in order to continue the saga of how it is blended, roasted, and ground. These procedures are the fruits of craft traditions that are handed on from generation to generation and that have contributed to the creation of a veritable cult of coffee. However true it may be that behind every cup of coffee there lies an evocative and charming tale, behind every cup of “espresso” there lies a good deal more! Espresso is coffee that is made “expressly for you”, quickly and individually The most important advantage of this extraordinary process stems from the capacity, which is unique to espresso, of obtaining an emulsion of the oils present in the ground coffee.
The literal meaning of the word Espresso could be expressed as Made There and Then. This method of coffee preparation was created in order to find a remedy for the slowness of other methods and the consequent loss of the infusion’s aroma when already hot and before being drunk, speeding up the passage of the water through the dose of round coffee by means of greater pressure. It is an extraordinary drink, a marvel of chemical and physical engineering, aromatic, of a full and velvety flavour: aromatic because the emulsion given by the pressure of the oils present in the coffee frees the aroma which dissolves in the hot water, trys to escape, but is immediately trapped by the cream; Velvety because the sugar, protein and fats emulsified together.
Why did we ask our Master tasters to create a “stomach-friendly” coffee blend?
Always more work, more responsibilities, more things to do in our everyday lives: the pace becomes more frantic and your stress level rises!
The first effect of all this combined with a bad diet can cause digestive problems!
So Bristot Gentile – Stomach Friendly, dewaxed coffee, was created. >>
