What is a specialty coffee?
The “specialty coffees” are high-grade Arabica beans, fully traceable in terms of varietal, farm and region of origin, manufacturing process, altitude, etc. They have no primary defects while, on the contrary, their organoleptic profile is amazingly rich of flavors and stand out for sweetness and acidity, which is why they are graded 80 points or above according to protocols set by the Specialty Coffee Association, , on a scale of excellence ranging from 0 to 100.
Specialty coffees are roasted in small batches with an artisanal process and brewed in compliance with well-defined standards.The result is a cup with total absence of bitterness where the hints of fruit, flowers, chocolate, toasted bread are easily distinguishable. Each coffee has its own personality and its own distinctive aromatic profile, depending on the origin, the variety, the processing method.
