Since this company (Torrefazione) and its cafes were acquired and promptly closed by Starbucks, the quality control of the various Torrefazione blends is doubtful. The blends now prepared by Starbucks varies widely. The original objective was not, of course, to expand the coffee offering range of Starbucks but to erase a competitor. If they had continued the quality of Torrefazione I would have no complaints but Starbucks does not.
I have lived and worked in the coffee-loving Pacific Northwest and western Europe.
Torrefazione was the best coffee house experience.
Perugia whole bean make the best espresso.
I hear Starbucks is discontinuing Torrefazione whole bean and will sell ground only.
To make great espresso, you must grind your own beans.
This is a terrible mistake. Please write Starbucks and let them know.
This is a truly great coffee for espresso. I've tried many different roasts and keep coming back here. It's smooth and slightly nutty, with a chocolate finish. No bitterness or bad aftertaste. I ran out and bought some from a well-known large national chain and compared to this it was tasteless to drink and afterward tasted like I'd swallowed a dead rat compared to this. The only downside is that once you get it you won't want to drink anything else.
Through the years, I have made Folgers coffee (like my Mom) on the stove top; used quality coffee in a french press carafe; and the past few years use Torrefazione Italia coffee in an espresso maker. There is no comparison in taste - this italian coffee has a wonderful aroma and a fabulous taste both of which I enjoy first thing in the morning. I like this coffee better than that of most high end restaurants, it's the best coffee I ever tasted.
I tried the Napoli but my wife didn't seem to enjoy it as much as the Perugia and I think it's great as well. I'm glad we tried it and have it on out ship to save program so we never run out.
