Specialty coffee and fully automatic machines don't go together? We beg to differ. In recent years we've seen continuous improvements in the performance of fully automatic machines, so decided to take on the challenge and develop a fantastic specialty espresso for fully automatic machines.

The roast profile is based on classic Italian roasts - with a strong roasted note and pleasant sweetness. Perfect for your fully automatic machine as well!

The beans in Italo Disco are a Catuaí variety from Brazil. They come from the farm Santa Cecilia and are special because they bring all the flavor of the Peaberry to the cup. 

About the farm

Pedro Veloso is a third generation coffee producer. His family has been producing coffee in this privileged area for over 160 years. For the municipality of Carmo do Paranaíba, his activities are of great importance.
This is due, in part, to the fact the very advanced set-up with high yield capacity: It is irrigated by a drip system with water intake from dams and reservoirs and has its own administration, workshop and quality laboratory. Pedro Veloso lives on site himself and structures his daily routine according to what happens on each farm. He spends his mornings visiting the farms and overseeing harvesting and processing. Then, later in the day, he takes care of business by going to the trading room in Carmo, where he personally handles calls with international clients.

Our goal was to roast a coffee that can happily be brewed by a fully automatic machine, without losing any complexity, and that can still yield great results in an espresso machine or a Moka pot.

Italo Disco is reminiscent of the Italian roasts of the 80s and 90s and spends a minute longer in the roasting drum. The result is a 100% Arabica coffee from the Santa Cecilia Farm in Brazil that comes across with surprising clarity and a powerful punch of dark chocolate paired with subtle fruity flavours of cherry jam and caramel.

It's an excellent espresso, worthy of the title of specialty coffee, and one which can be prepared a myriad of different ways. Have fun!
