Little Italy is one of the original house blends roasted by us and enjoyed by our customers for over 6 years. This blend is a total crowd pleaser and a very good all rounder coffee suited to milk based coffee and black coffees.

In 2021 we have formed a new direct trade relationship with Ismael Andrade and his son Romulo Andrade from Sao Silvestre Estate and now our Little Italy blend is roasted with 50% Brazil Sao Silvestre estate sourced directly in co operation with Ismael and Romulo.

We can proudly say that their premium coffee has made a significant further improvement to our Little Italy blend and added a richer aroma and deeper, longer lasting finish to the blend.

The Brazil from Sao Silvestre estate blends perfectly with Certified Organic natural process Ethiopian Coffee which adds more body and sweetness and a touch of dried stone fruits to the blend.

This blend is roasted with traditional Italian espresso in mind with rich body and delicious flavour notes of dark cocoa, roasted hazelnuts and almonds with dark chocolate finish and salted caramel sweetness. This coffee is very easy to use for a home barista and the professional barista alike!

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
Everyone loves the Little Italy blend! Its our oldest running Mikro blend created at the time of inception of Mikro Coffee Roasters back in Mount Gambier, SA in 2014 and still is a real crowd-pleaser coffee that tastes like coffee and will not dissapoint the modern or the old-school coffee palates alike.
STRENGTH AND FLAVOUR
Strength 7/10 with the flavour of traditional Italian espresso with notes of roasted nuts, toffee, dark chocolate with low acidity and medium to heavy body. This is not a really dark roast like you might think with the name Little Italy but it will surely satisfy.
