    PRODUCT DETAILS

    Little Italy is one of our original house espresso coffee blends roasted on the surf coast in Torquay and enjoyed by our customers for over 7 years and they love this coffee!

    This premium coffee blend is a total crowd pleaser and a very good all rounder espresso coffee suited to milk based and black coffees.

    The Little Italy Premium Espresso Coffee is Direct Trade

    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 and to top it all off we also add a Certified Organic Honduras coffee to add some more depth to the blend.

    This espresso coffee 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!
