When in Rome, your sugar-laced bold and dark espresso with its foamy head of hazelnut-hued crema will taste as strong as the Roman Empire in its heyday. The Romans like their espresso served scalding hot and drunk in 30 seconds, and deeply dark. But we wanted to pay tribute to the chicness of modern Rome, and so we gave Ispirazione Roma a subtle light roast. It balances the intensity and deep flavor of the coffee with that hint of acidity that gives Ispirazione Roma its elegance. A fine grind preserves the coffees’ aromatic finesse. It helps keep Ispirazione Roma strong yet mild – true to Rome’s rich history of contrasts.
