Favuzzi Italian Stallion coffee is a full-bodied coffee with aromatic notes of caramel, dark chocolate and brown sugar.
This coffee is a blend of beans from Guatemala (1/3) and Colombia (2/3). Guatemalan beans bring a caramelized taste and a light acidity that gives a nice length in the mouth. Colombian Supremo type (high quality) beans stand out for their power and their smoke and fruit taste.
Full-bodied roast: 21 minutes.
The Italian Stallion espresso is the strongest of the Favuzzi family, making it a perfect blend for a Neapolitan coffee. Its long roasting process brings out the oil in the beans and releases all its aromatic notes. With the right grind, it also lends itself very well to drip coffee. It will delight ristrettos lovers and anyone looking for a strong coffee taste in a preparation with milk (flat white coffee, affogato coffee).
Italy, which is known for its roasting know-how, does not grow the beans. They have to import and process them, and we have to import them into Canada. This has a significant impact on the taste of the coffee, which is at its best when freshly roasted.
That's why we've partnered with local roasters of Italian origin who have mastered the art of Italian roasting, i.e. slow roasting in small batches to eliminate acidity and enhance aromas. As we perform roasting several times a week, our coffee is always fresh and at its best.
This type of Italian-style roasting is characterized by a longer roasting time of 18 to 20 minutes at low temperatures (190°C to 230°C [375°F to 445°F]). Slow roasting allows the beans to be roasted more evenly from the surface to the centre, like a good loaf of bread that is baked slowly to help dissipate the heat.
Although slow roasting is not the most productive or cost-effective way to roast coffee, it provides several benefits in terms of taste: chocolate and nutty aromas, a comforting taste and a long finish in the mouth.
Our coffees are roasted by Alex Sereno and Enrico Serena, two coffee lovers... and childhood friends! Enrico is the creator, and Alex is the communicator. Together, they have won the challenge of offering a high-quality product - "Slow Roast" coffee inspired by Italian tradition - for true espresso lovers.
Over the years, their company, Barista, has created a communication and Web marketing department, the National Barista Institude, a complete range of event coffee services, a gourmet platform (On s'en food) and even a book!
