Behind every one of our new espresso or filter coffee blends, there is inspiration, the careful selection of the origin of the green beans, an entire creative process and, of course, the masterful control of the roasting phase.
Barista's co-founder, Enrico, was the first to seek out the knowledge and techniques to become a master roaster in his home country of Italy. He met peers with the same training in order to further his knowledge and become fully immersed in the Italian way of doing things. Enrico now works with Jocelyn, our Production Manager, to create Italian-inspired coffee for both our espresso and filter coffee ranges.
All our coffee is made following the artisanal Italian slow-roasted tradition. This means that all our beans are roasted at low temperatures, between 200 °F and 210 °F, for 18 to 20 minutes. Most of our blends are a medium-dark roast, with beans cooked just enough to obtain the most lovely of espresso brews.
