Inspired by the ambassador of all Italian coffees, we chose not to imitate but to roast our own version. The ristretto is the essence of Italy’s iconic coffee culture. It’s not reflective of any one city – it’s Italy. It’s the fashion, the art, the cuisine – it’s the consistent elegance and excellence of Italy as a whole. Inspired by this ambassador of all Italian coffees, we chose not to imitate but to roast our own version. Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano is a blend of diverse Arabica and Robustas – a contrasting bouquet from around the world – together they recreate the iconic Italian taste. Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano is a medium-dark roast. In one short, sharp sip, this blend reveals all its intensity and complexity of aromas. It’s a roasty and intense coffee accented by fruity notes and a hint of acidity dancing through. It’s a profile worthy of an ambassador – a coffee that explains Italians’ passion for coffee and makes sense of why it’s ingrained in daily life.
Powerful & Contrasting
Italians say coffee is all about the four Ms of miscela, macinazione, macchina, and mano. Crafting Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano with respect for this Italian classic begins with the blend – the miscela. Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano is a sophisticated recipe of coffees - both Arabica and Robusta - that each lends its distinct personality to create this iconic Italian taste. We crafted it to reflect the elegance and excellence of Italian culture and coffee. On top of a neutral base of Brazilian Arabica comes a dash of Robusta from South India. It adds a kick to Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano. The best of South American and East African Arabicas add a hint of a crisp fruit note to the Ristretto Italiano.
Split roasting means you can taste what each coffee brings to the cup. The long-roasted Robusta coffee gives Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano its body, its roastiness, and its cocoa bitterness. Putting the Arabica coffees through a quick roast keeps their bright acidity and fruity notes alive and gives Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano more in the cup. We celebrate Italy’s rich history of master blenders and roasters in Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano.
A roasty and intense coffee but with fruity notes and a hint of acidity dancing through the blend – Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano is mysterious and magnetic in its complexity. It’s a profile worthy of an ambassador – a coffee that explains Italians’ passion for coffee and makes sense of why it’s ingrained in daily life. Extracted to the classic 25 ml, you’ll soon see how right the Italians are – this drop of deliciousness shows how less can truly be more.
