A delightful espresso: the eyes sense it first. Thick, unbroken hazelnut-hued crema – that light-brown layer on top – painted by tiger stripes, darker brown. Next, aromas bring a sweet and complex tease, full with notes of chocolate, toast, honey and caramel. Telling taste: "Here is something special." Finally, the sip. Sweet, velvety, full bodied – a passing hint of bitter: here, then gone.
We could offer you every region, roast and blend under the sun. But we’d rather give you the perfect one. So we’ve spent eight decades refining a singular, signature blend - celebrated the world over as the pinnacle of what coffee can be.
