Segafredo IS Italian Espresso

2015_Segafredo Espresso Classico

If you like Italian coffee (and honestly, what’s not to like?!), then you already know that Segafredo Coffee company is passionate and creative. Their dedication to continuous innovation in all aspects of coffee production has allowed the company to grow into the titan it is today. Massimo Zanetti started a coffee roasting business in Bologna in 1973. Today, Segafredo is part of a larger beverage group. The company runs a coffee plantation and a processing plant in Brazil, has more than 10 roasting plants and hundreds of Segafredo Espresso cafes around the globe and operates an entire Food Service line for commercial and office use. When you do the math, that means more than 50 million cups of Segafredo espresso are drunk every day.

Not surprisingly, Segafredo is one of our most popular coffees. For home preparation, Segafredo Intermezzo and Espresso Casa coffees are two of our best sellers. Intermezzo has an authentic Italian flavor thanks to its blend of Arabica and Robusta beans. The flavor is relatively strong, with spicy notes, good structure and a full aroma. With medium crema, Intermezzo is perfect for espresso. Espresso Casa is a balanced dark roast, with good crema and also perfect for espresso. We have both roasts in stock, in ground and whole bean.

The First Day Of Spring

2016_spring party robin williams quote with flowers

As of March 20th, Spring has officially sprung.

Also known as the March Equinox or the Spring or Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, this day marks the moment when the Sun crosses the equator. At that precise time, the Earth’s axis is neither tilted away nor towards the Sun. Interestingly, in the Southern Hemisphere, this is known as the Fall Equinox.

In many countries and cultures, the Spring Equinox marks a time of change and renewal. With Easter only a week away, decorated eggs will be popping up all over, eggs themselves being symbols of rebirth.

In the spirit of new beginnings, we would like to offer you an opportunity to try something new – or rediscover an old favorite – by giving you $5 off your order of $40 or more at*

Brand Info: Pellini

You’re the Tops

Pellini is one of the most popular coffee roasters in all of Italy.  The company’s humble beginnings in Verona over 90 years ago grew into a mission to make every cup of coffee more than a habit.  Instead, it should be a special ritual capable of expanding the pleasure and sense of well-being of those drinking Pellini coffee. The Arabica beans are roasted in a very specialized slow process that produces the best results without sacrificing any of the delicate beans.  Hot air is used to gradually heat the bean, followed by cool air to stop the natural roasting process.

Pellini also employs the  Panel Test method, which controls quality and flavor.  They are one of the few Italian companies to voluntarily follow this method, since the coffee must get the approval of these strict judges in order to be sold.  The Panel carefully inspects and reviews the coffee, judging based on all the senses, not just taste, but the smell and the appearance, to make their determination.  Pellini trusts in this level of quality assurance!
