Type of Coffee for Espresso?

Golden Question: What Type of Coffee for My Espresso?

Many times we’re asked to introduce coffee to people, but where exactly do we start from? We all have different preference for our morning cuppa coffee. Some prefer it strong and intense for a day full of activities, some love the fragrance that fills their senses before indulging in the hot delight.

For this update, we would like to bring you through our coffee blends and flavours for a better selection and taste
match. As a start, let us recognise some of the basics. There are dozens of varieties of coffee beans, but the ones that truly matters are Arabica & Robusta, which are the 2 primary types of coffee cultivated for coffee drinking. These two varieties differ in taste and growing conditions. PITTI CAFFE sources for a wide range of green coffees to cater to individual preferences. Our beans come from all around the world: Africa (Togo, Ethiopia), Asia (India, Java), Central and South America (Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Panama and Colombia).

ARABICA: Sweeter, softer with a fruity taste. Higher in acidity with a winey taste.

ROBUSTA: Stronger, harsher with a nutty aftertaste. Contains twice as much caffeine as Arabica beans, especially valued in espressos for the deep flavour and crema (thin layer of foam at the top of a cup of espresso – alike the foam of beer, but way milder).
