Boasts a sweet aroma of brown sugar and aromatic wood. Complex notes of sweet spices, Maraschino cherries, lemon zest, and vanilla carry from cup to its lingering finish. Full-bodied, smooth and mild.
Classic and chic, Espresso Nuevo is a Central Italian-type espresso blend designed for the American cafe. Darker roasted than our Espresso Classico, Espresso Nuevo is excellent in milk drinks and is designed to cut through dairy rather nicely. Best in cappuccinos as the milk creates additional dimensions of flavor and character.
"Great depth and complex range in aroma and flavor: crisp walnut and dark chocolate, cedary anise, lemon and floral top notes. Heavy, satiny mouthfeel; long, rich, sweetly resonant finish. Surprisingly delicate in two parts milk, but ultimately a sweet but complex chocolate, toffee- and mint-toned, impresses."
