Cafe Altura Espresso Italiano is a Dark Roast Blend of three coffees - roasted to a lighter degree than the typical western espresso shot. This blend combines the subtle sweetness of a Mexican coffee, the earthy and velvety body of a Sumatran, with the clean caramel like finish of a Colombian.
This blend is great for any brew method and it is especially nice for customers who struggle with clogged Espresso grinders and machines due to the natural oils found on the usual ultra-dark varieties like French Roasts.
