This is the perfect espresso for straight shots and latte coffees if you prefer a smooth flavor, without any bitterness, acids, avoiding high caffeine. This espresso is comparable to Danesi Doppio, also at 100% Arabica coffee beans.
We offer Il Caffe Manaresi espresso coffee beans in 4 versions:
Smooth (100% Arabica Beans)
Elegant (92% Arabica Beans, 8% Robusta Beans)
Intense (60% Arabica Beans, 40% Robusta Beans)
Decaf (100% Arabica Beans Swiss decaffination method, left over caffeine less than in American espresso coffees)
Il Caffe Manaresi Blu guarantees a light bodied flavor as well as the lingering aftertaste with just a hint of chocolate as we know it from Manaresi Gold Oro. But don't get it wrong, it is not a chocolate flavored espresso, just a tiny hint of chocolate within the lingering aftertaste. If you extract it as an espresso, it is smooth to the fullest. You don't taste any acids, neither bitterness. If you use it in cappuccino or other latte coffees, it still keeps its smooth attitude but compared to the straight esspresso shot, the smooth attitude is less present caused in the dominant milk taste.
As the Manaresi Oro is primarly composed as an elegant and delightful espresso, the Blu comes smooth to the fullest withh an elegant taste, paired with an awesome hazelnut colored nice crema which stands a lot of sugar as well. If the crema does not show up as described, well, let's talk about your espresso machine how to adjust, improve your machine.
What's the difference in toasting the beans?
Based on the gentle and slow turning motion of the rotary drum, the astringent hard acids are volatizing and the remaining acids which are important for the flavor (comparable to great wines) as carrier of the aroma are still in the beans without later impacting the taste towards noticeable acids.
"A tradition that continues..."
In Florence, in via de' Lamberti, next to the church of Orsanmichele, "once upon a time..." there was a coffee shop filled with antique brass, mirrors and precious woodwork and a delicious aroma.
The aroma and flavour of a unique and unrivalled coffee which every Florentine remembers in his heart and palate.
That coffee was: Manaresi coffee.
Today the Manaresi coffee mix continues that same tradition, since 1898, with the same meticulous detail in choosing the highest qualities of the world's best coffees, with the same devoted care in roasting which is done now as it was in the past, a lime at a time, the old way, under the strict control of human experience that no machine will ever be able to duplicate.
The only concessions to modern life are: packages which conserve the product very well and a dynamic and efficient production and commercial organization.

The espresso is good, has very good creama.
when i saw that this coffee contained 100% arabica i got excited. my favorite coffee is manresi gold, and that has 92% arabica, so i thought this might even be smoother...it's a stronger coffee, but not as smooth as manaresi gold
