Ispirazione Italiana
8 Intensity

Ispirazione Roma is inspired by the different layers of civilization towering up to the present day, where the Modern adds its layer of elegance to the history of the city. The coffee has a popular taste forged by time and the rich southern Italian influences, enlivened by a dash of modern elegance found in its delicate acidity. Roman roasters shrewdly developed their roasting techniques to achieve an aromatic profile that wisely combined the popular ancient taste with a twist of modernity. To mirror their skill, we gave Ispirazione Roma the shortest and lightest roast of our range. It results in a subtle balance between the intensity and depth of the woodsy, cereal notes, and the finesse of the acidity and elegant aromatics – true to Rome’s rich history of contrasts.

Origin

To hit the complexity of a classic Roman espresso requires starting with the right blend. The magnetic complexity of a Roman roast comes from its signature 70/30 blend of Arabica and Robusta. Inspired by this style, we crafted Ispirazione Roma to be our coffee with the most finesse. We chose a natural Arabica and Robusta from Brazil to give Ispirazione Roma its deep base. Adding a high-grown washed Arabica coffee from Ixhuatlan in Mexico provides a flourish of acidity and delicate green fruit aromatics.

Roasting

When in Rome, your sugar-laced bold and dark espresso with its foamy head of hazelnut-hued crema will taste as strong as the Roman Empire in its heyday. The Romans like their espresso served scalding hot and drunk in 30 seconds, and deeply dark. But we wanted to pay tribute to the chicness of modern Rome, and so we gave Ispirazione Roma a subtle light roast. It balances the intensity and deep flavor of the coffee with that hint of acidity that gives Ispirazione Roma its elegance. A fine grind preserves the coffees’ aromatic finesse. It helps keep Ispirazione Roma strong yet mild – true to Rome’s rich history of contrasts.

Aromatic profile

From the days of Ancient Rome, a great many cultures passed through this metropolis. Different layers of civilization towering up to the present day when Modern Rome adds its layer of elegance to the rich history of the city. Ispirazione Roma, too, is beautifully complex. There’s a subtle balance between the strength of the roastiness, the depth of the woodsy, cereal notes, and the finesse of the acidity and elegant aromatics. Ispirazione Roma is the ideal coffee if you’re after a bold yet graceful espresso – it’s a classic taste crowned with elegance.
