Parioli Italian espresso suggests the lovely region of Lazio, captivating the coffee connoisseur with a rich medium body, smooth yet subtle wine flavour, and ending with a distinct aromatic note. The beauty of Italy is experienced travelling through its varied countryside: music, art, language, culinary art and architecture all express their unique and relative historical cultures of each rich and distinctive region. Caffé D'arte espresso blends represent the vivid characteristics of each region. Your taste buds will travel to the places and times of Italy's most famous culinary regions!
For espresso, this has a lovely balance of dark chocolate & some sweetness but enough of a darker edge to make it more complex & interesting. It’s still a relatively dark roast; more medium dark than medium.
Hi Evan, Thanks for the review! The Parioli is certainly one of our more popular Italian style blends, we're glad you're enjoying it.
This is listed as a Medium Roast but I beg to differ; it’s more Medium Dark with some visible oil on the beans. Nonetheless, it’s an excellent bean if you are looking for dark chocolate & layers of nuanced vanilla & nutty tones. At 9 BAR & 93C it has no bitterness, just a lovely lingering finish. Fantastico!
Malcolm at Essrotec recommended these beans to me and they are awesome. Will definitely be ordering more.
This surprised me with the taste, just purchased more bags, medium tasting with great flavors.
