What is it About Italian Coffee?

By: Kara Mae Adamo

Italians have their thumbs on the heartbeat of the culinary soul.

Rich sauces, savory reductions and zesty seasoning intertwine with the textures and smells of pastas, braised meats and broths to create an atmosphere immediately recognizable and impossible to resist.

Authentic Italian meals—the kind where the salad comes after the meal because it’s a palate cleanser—are finished off with espresso. There is no argument here. It is just a fact. Unless grappa is around (an after-dinner drink that no Italian can rightfully justify), small one-ounce cups of richly complex espresso are set in front of all dinner guests.

A complex and sophisticated medley of pleasantly aromatic and expressive flavor, espresso can be mixed with a touch of steamed milk to create a delicious cappuccino or served on its own.

The ideal blend for those seeking a traditional espresso, Lavazza of Turin, Italy is consideredItaly’s leading espresso coffee company. Known for their technologically innovative roasting technique, Lavazza monitors the entire process by computer. Roasted in air convection roasters, each and every bean is inspected and evenly browned; creating a blend that is rich and full but lacks the bitter flavor found in most espresso. Lavazza blends are made exclusively with Arabica and Robusta coffees, providing a flavor spectrum that ranges from sweet and fragrant to fuller and decisive.

Close your eyes and savor the full, chocolaty flavor of the Brazilian coffee or the delicate and mildly acidic notes from the Arabica of Central America. Lavazza Super Crema Espresso comes in 2.2 pound bags (1 Kilo) and is available in ground, whole bean and espresso pods. Purchase it here: http://www.1stincoffee.com/lavazza.htm
