Stories told by the experts of Università del Caffè, stories full of images and anecdotes to let you discover every aspect of the beautiful life of coffee.

A biography in colour: discover how coffee constantly transforms, and how it passes through a thousand colours in the course of its life.

  1. Green - The colour of the seedling, the plantations where coffee grows, its leaves.
  2. White - The colour of a delicate flower, which only blooms when it is showered by the rains.
  3. Red and yellow - The colour of the coffee fruit, which resembles a cherry and holds two precious beans.
  4. Light Green - The colour of the green beans, which are collected and processed in distant tropical fields and then set out on a journey to reach us.
  5. Dark brown - The colour of the coffee bean when it is roasted: it does not just become beautiful, it also becomes fragrant.
  6. Brown - The colour of the crema on the surface of a perfect espresso, the guardian of a treasure-trove of aromas and flavours.
  7. Black - The colour of mystery, an expression of the remarkable virtues that coffee shares with all who taste it.
