Meanwhile, In Italy…
This time of year, Italians anxiously await several seasonal events. There are festivals for saints, a jazz festival, a film festival, but the 2 most important food-related fests are the Truffle Festivals and the annual return of roasted chestnuts.
Chestnuts are considered a fall fruit in Italy, and have been grown in the area for centuries, with some chestnut trees honored as state monuments. Being low fat and high fiber, these vitamin-filled nuggets of flavor helped many Italians, especially those without access to farmland, to survive winters. Today, you will find street vendors roasting and selling chestnuts across the country, then serving them in paper cones. It’s a sure sign that winter, and the winter holidays, are coming.
From street gourmet to culinary gourmet, here’s a look at the various Truffle festivals held across the country in November. Many towns celebrate the fungus, which looks similar to a mushroom but has a mild garlic and earthy flavor, and just happens to deliciously complement Italian cuisine. The largest gathering is the Alba International White Truffle Festival. Also eagerly anticipated are the truffles available for sale. In 2018, two pounds of Alba truffles sold for the equivalent of $85,000 USD. Parma and San Miniato are other towns that have large gatherings in honor of the precious truffle.

In the heart of Rome, just a few steps from the Pantheon, Sant Eustachio slow roasts beans over wood in the back of the shop. This roasting technique creates a mild coffee with a fragrant aroma. Try the Sant Eustachio Filtro and Sant Eustachio Moka, in ground, or the Nespresso-compatible capsules. You’ll really save with the discount above.
With origins in Trieste, illy coffee is always rich and full-bodied with a velvety texture. Try the Medium Roast Fine Grind Espresso, Dark Roast Fine Ground Espresso, Moka, and Decaffeinated, in ground or, whole beans Blend Classico Medium Roast and Intenso Bold Roast.
In The Spotlight: Kimbo
Based in Naples, in the south of Italy, Kimbo has produced premium coffee for more than 50 years. We have a wide range of Kimbo coffees, including several signature espresso-ready roasts, available in ground, whole beans, and capsules.
Our popular roasts include Kimbo Antica Tradizione in ground, which is the original rich and flavorful Kimbo blend; Kimbo Espresso Napoletano in ground, roasted and prepared using the Neapolitan tradition; and Kimbo Premium Espresso Bar in whole beans, which creates an intense espresso drink.
Just in, soon-to-be favorites: Kimbo Crema Suprema Espresso (balanced, perfect espresso); Kimbo Dolce Crema Espresso (light roast, smooth and velvety); Kimbo Crema Intensa Espresso (medium, full-flavor).
For Nespresso connoisseurs, try these from Kimbo: Delicate Armonia, medium, balanced Napoli, medium/dark toasty Lungo, and full-flavored Intenso. Kimbo BIO Organic capsules are a medium roast, with organic Arabica beans.
The founder was a merchant marine, eventually opening a coffee roasting business in Italy. His innovations revolutionized packaging, storage, and transport of fresh coffee in proper containers made for long hauls. We offer Caffe Hausbrandt roasts in whole beans. On the delicate side, there’s Gourmet Columbus, a balanced coffee, and Gourmet, spicy and citrusy. Academia Espresso is a single origin medium roast, smooth with fruit notes. The more intense roasts include Trieste Espresso, full-bodied, with toast notes; Classic Espresso, from Robusta beans and is full-bodied, and H. Hausbrandt, a sweet, spicy, nutty roast.
When Vittorio Trombetta began roasting and selling Caffe Trombetta coffee in 1890, he opened his shop near the main terminal of the train station in Rome. Over the next 60 years, the company grew and gained its current reputation as a producer of quality coffee, particularly espresso. Try Nespresso-compatible capsules available in 3 roasts: Arabica (balanced), Crema (creamy), and Organic BIO (100% Organic beans).
