ORIGIN

The Arabica coffees from Brazil and Colombia that go into this blend have been sustainable coffees for a long time now and they give the gold Nespresso pod its true harmony. The farmers are among the original AAA Program troupe and they meticulously care for their coffee and their environment. A naturally processed Brazilian coffee gives Volluto a balanced profile – the edgy freshness eases off as the harvested and processed crop is left to rest and mellow. They call this local coffee tradition reposoVolluto’s other component coffee is an Arabica from Colombia’s mid-range mountains. It’s washed and sun-dried to bring out the soft fruity flavors of the coffee.

Ispirazione Roma

The fragrance wafting out of Rome’s traditional coffee bars is a testament to a rich history of contrasts: popular tastes, tempered by the capital’s elegance. This complexity is mirrored in a subtle roast, balancing intensity and finesse and deep flavor spiked with hints of acidity.

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. This Mexican Arabica grows in rich and fertile volcanic soils, and it’s processed so carefully – the farmers dry the coffee on what they call ‘raised drying beds’ to protect it from the rains. You can taste the results in the cup. The excellence of these coffees – and the complexity of the blend – are an homage to the beautiful story of ancient tradition and modern elegance that you find in Rome.

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.

Ispirazione Genova Livanto

From this important trading city, sailors navigated the globe in the quest of discovering a myriad of aromas and flavors. Latin American coffees were among the treasures they brought back from their explorations. Ispirazione Genova Livanto’s medium roast brings together in beautiful balance all the rounded flavors of Brazilian, Colombian and Guatemalan coffees, crowned by their classic sweet caramel note.

ORIGIN
True to the character of northern Italian coffee Ispirazione Genova Livanto is an Arabica-centric blend with a complexity of tastes. We began with Brazilian Arabica – an approachable, mellow coffee. Into this base we blended reputable, high-grown Arabicas from Central and South America with malty and fruit profiles that develop beautifully during roasting. We chose them because they bring the delicate aromas and rounded taste northern Italian coffee is known for.

ROASTING
The coffee roasting tends to be lighter in the north of the country. That’s why we gave the coffees in Ispirazione Genova Livanto a medium roast that lands lighter than what you’ll find in the south but is still dark enough to develop those caramel and toasted cereal notes. It gives Ispirazione Genova Livanto that rounded mouthfeel and keeps its delicate acidity intact.

AROMATIC PROFILE
Ispirazione Genova Livanto is a smooth, rounded and delicately aromatic coffee. Its lighter roast develops the smooth and full body and keeps the finer aromas present. You’ll catch a toasted cereal fragrance and a sweet caramel note.

Ispirazione Firenze Arpeggio

This exquisite blend is a true reflection of Florence’s cultural significance: An intellectual hub in the heart of Italy, drawing influences from all the country. Ispirazione Firenze Arpeggio’s roasting style brings these influences together by combining fruity notes traditionally found in the North of Italy with cocoa notes from the South, culminating in a velvety, dense and creamy cup.

Origin
Ispirazione Firenze Arpeggio is a blend of Latin American Arabicas centered around an inherently malty Costa Rican coffee. All the other coffees used are also Arabica, and that unified taste is as magnetic as Florence during the Renaissance.

Roasting
We crafted Ispirazione Firenze Arpeggio to pay tribute to the culture of this city which draws from the light North to the dark South. An intense roast of the coffee beans develops the distinct characteristics of each of Ispirazione Firenze Arpeggio’s coffees. It may be a blend, but it seeks to let each coffee shine in the cup. The malty aroma turns into the cocoa notes that give this espresso its gravitas.

This creation is shared with lovers of pure flavour, even where they prefer a decaffeinated version.

ORIGIN
Ispirazione Firenze Arpeggio Decaffeinato is a blend of decaffeinated Latin American Arabicas centered around an inherently malty Costa Rican coffee. All the other coffees used are also decaffeinated Arabica, and that unified taste is as magnetic as Florence during the Renaissance.

ROASTING
A dark and deep roast of the Brazil and Costa Rica really pushes the intensity of those cocoa notes. We gave the fruitier coffees a lighter roast for balance in this decaf coffee pod. It’s an homage to the complexity of Florence’s roast style. It gives this espresso dolce its gravitas and its class.

AROMATIC PROFILE

Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar

Palermo inspired our long, dark roasting style plus a high Robusta content: hallmarks of this Southern city. At a crossroads of influence from African and Arab traditions, multicultural Palermo made us dream. The result is an exceptionally intense, syrupy, woody and spicy coffee, crowned with very dark, thick crema.

ORIGIN
Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar ’s daring intensity comes from blending four distinct coffees – it speaks to the multicultural heritage of Palermo. It’s a coastal city sitting on the edge of three continents, with centuries of Arabian, Byzantine and Spanish cultural influence shaping it. We picked four bold coffees to pay homage to this history. Traditionally you’d look only to unwashed Robusta to bring brute strength. And that’s what you’ll find dominating the coffee blends of southern Italy. But our washed Robusta is a rare find that balances out the Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar coffee pod with its clean taste and creamy texture. These Robusta farmers process their coffee with the same care that washed Arabica farmers do. It helps add that elegant touch to the robustness in Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar . The other coffees are Latin American Arabicas that lend a natural sweetness to Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar.

ROASTING
We split roast the coffees to bring out distinct qualities of each coffee in the Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar blend. Most of the Arabica and Robusta get an intense roast to develop their bitterness and body. We give the unwashed Robusta a shorter and lighter roast to bring out some of the finer aromatic notes. Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar ’s roast style reflects the Arab and African influence you see across southern Italy’s dark and intense coffees.

AROMATIC PROFILE
Did you catch the scent of spice drifting across the waters from Africa? You’ll taste the audacious bitterness and peppery notes leaping out through the thick syrupy body. Together the Arabica and Robusta balance each other out in this espresso. It reflects both the Palermo coastal lifestyle and its rich history. You can sit back in the sun and enjoy your Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar on the terrace, with everything from the food on your plate to the architecture surrounding you whispering the histories of all who’ve passed through Palermo.

Ispirazione Napoli

From the streets of Naples, the local deep-rooted coffee ritual inspired our dark roasting method, which masterfully developed the coffee to an intense degree. Leavened with Robusta, the result is a velvety, creamy cup with an extremely thick body and a pleasant, bitter aftertaste. A tribute to the roasting proficiency of the Italian capital of coffee.

ORIGIN
We created Ispirazione Napoli as a blend of Robusta from Uganda touched with Arabcia from . We carefully selected coffees that could stand up to the intense roasting this blend calls for – bold coffees that would develop the gritty yet beautiful aromas, tastes, and textures that reflect Naples’ deep-rooted coffee history and traditions.

ROASTING
Ispirazione Napoli’s very dark and intense roast reflects Naples’ traditional dark roasting method. Long ago, you could walk the narrow lanes of Naples and catch the bold aroma of this roast as Neapolitans roast their coffee in the ground floor homes that opened out into the street. During this deep roast, the coffee beans develop gritty yet beautiful characteristics. This is reflected in a thick, velvety body, the creamy mouthfeel, and the delicious bitter note. It takes real skill to roast to such a degree, and the boldness of Ispirazione Napoli ’s roast endeavors to be an homage to the skill we’ve long seen in the Italian capital of coffee.

AROMATIC PROFILE
Ispirazione Napoli pays tribute to the short, strong and dark espressos of this southern Italian coastal city – a thing of grit and beauty. It’s a velvety, creamy cup with an extremely thick body and a kiss of pleasant bitterness in its aftertaste.

Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano

Long roasted in part for body, short for brightness and fruit, this coffee is the culmination of all we explored in the emblematic Italian cup.

ORIGIN
Italians say coffee is all about the four Ms of miscela, macinazione, macchina, and mano. Crafting Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano with respect for this Italian classic begins with the blend – the miscela. Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano is a sophisticated recipe of coffees – both Arabica and Robusta – that each lends its distinct personality to create this iconic Italian taste. We crafted it to reflect the elegance and excellence of Italian culture and coffee. On top of a neutral base of Brazilian Arabica comes a dash of Robusta from South India. It adds a kick to Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano. The best of South American and East African Arabicas add a hint of a crisp fruit note to the Ristretto Italiano pod.

ROASTING
Split roasting means you can taste what each coffee brings to the cup. The long-roasted Robusta coffee gives Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano its body, its roastiness, and its cocoa bitterness. Putting the Arabica coffees through a quick roast keeps their bright acidity and fruity notes alive and gives Ispirazione Ristretto Italiano more in the cup.

Ispirazione Venezia

Bridging the Ottoman Empire to Western Europe, Venice has a long history of importing the world’s coffees and expertly roasting them to balance their diversity. The muse for our cup: delicately aromatic, all elements balanced harmoniously, caramel notes and thick body.

ORIGIN
Coffee first came to Italy through the port of Venice. The Venetians developed a finely tuned ability to know their green, unroasted coffee beans and became master blenders. It wasn’t long before Italy’s first coffee shops and coffee houses sprung up here – many with their own roasters serving up their own blends. We wanted to honor this distinct heritage by crafting the Ispirazione Venezia blend to reflect this creativity and know-how. One of Italy’s biggest coffee imports is Brazilian Arabica, and so our experts began here. We blended in reputable, high-grown Arabicas from Central and South America with malty and fruit profiles that develop beautifully during roasting. We chose them because they bring the delicate aromas and rounded taste northern Italian coffee is known for.

ROASTING
This northern trade city is not just skilled in blending, but in roasting too. The coffee roasting tends to be lighter in the north of the country. That’s why we gave the coffees in Ispirazione Venezia a medium roast that lands lighter than what you’ll find in the south but is still remaining dark enough. It gives Ispirazione Venezia that rounded mouthfeel and mellowed acidity with just a hint of bitterness.

AROMATIC PROFILE
Ispirazione Venezia is a mellow, rounded and delicately aromatic coffee that will remind you of coffee beans fresh out of the roaster – taking you back in time to the early days of Italy’s coffee trade. Its lighter roast keeps the delicate aromas intensely present while developing a thick body. In Venezia you can’t miss the distinct cereal fragrance and those notes of sweet caramel that we all find so reassuring.
