Torino Italian Espresso: The Heart and Soul of Espresso

Espresso coffee beans are the cornerstone of one of the world's most cherished coffee beverages, the espresso. These beans are specially selected and roasted to perfection, allowing them to produce a concentrated shot of espresso that embodies the essence of coffee.

Torino Italian Espresso is a blend of high-quality Arabica and Robusta beans. Our unique blend creates a balance of the flavor, crema, and body of our espresso. The Arabica beans contribute nuanced flavors and aroma, while Robusta beans add crema and body to the shot.

Roast Profile: medium-dark to dark roast level. This extended roasting process enhances their robust and complex flavors. The roast can vary from light to dark within the medium-dark to dark spectrum, depending on the specific blend and the roaster's preferences.

Appearance: Dark brown to nearly black in color. They have a glossy sheen due to the oil that emerges during the roasting process, making them easily distinguishable from lighter roasts.

Aroma: Bold and enticing. The rich, earthy notes with hints of roasted nuts, dark chocolate, and a touch of caramel. This sets the stage for the intense flavor experience.

Flavor Profile: Concentrated and full-bodied flavor profile, which is brought to life in the form of an espresso shot.

Key characteristics include:

Richness: A velvety, dense mouthfeel that lingers on the palate.

Low Acidity: A smooth and mellow flavor with minimal tanginess.

Bitterness: A very pleasant bitterness to the flavor, which is balanced by the sweetness of the concentrated coffee.

Complexity: Chocolate, caramel, toasted grains with subtle fruity or floral undertones

Crema: Creamy, tan-colored foam on top of the coffee, which adds to both the visual appeal and the overall taste experience.

Brewing Method: Espresso coffee beans are specially ground to a fine consistency and brewed under high pressure in an espresso machine to extract the concentrated flavors and crema. Espresso shots serve as the foundation for a variety of coffee beverages, including cappuccinos, lattes, and Americanos.

In summary, espresso coffee beans are carefully selected and expertly roasted to deliver a rich, full-bodied, and complex coffee experience. They are the cornerstone of espresso, the beloved Italian coffee style, and are perfect for those who appreciate a concentrated, bold coffee with a balance of bitterness and sweetness. Whether enjoyed on its own or as the base for various espresso-based drinks, espresso coffee beans are a true coffee lover's delight.
