If ever there was an Espresso blend that would make the gods on Olympus cry; this is it. Uncomprimised goodness and ruthless intensity are exemplifyed in the Classic Northern Italian "profiled" espresso roast. Great care is given to roasting this blend of Indonesian, African, and South American. "Slow and Low" brings out all the dank and burnt sugar funk out of this blend. Bitter sweet notes of bakers chocolate, wood smoke, carmel burnt sugar, and blackberry fruit are bountyfull. Jolting initial bite and pleasing play between muted acidity and a lively tannic drying leave for complex lingering finish. Aromatics are heavy and sharp waking the senses to increasing alertness.
Avoid banishment from your "Olympus" rule by keeping the Italiano always stocked. This is one of our most popular blends. Fights over the last bag have needed moderation. Makes an outrageous Drip style cup as well. Great after dinner with heavy chocolate and cream desserts. If your friends catch wind of this they might just move in with you; buy them a bag too.
