Montanaro is a Medium Roast espresso with rich caramel crema, a full, sweet body and intense flavors of brown sugar, berry, and cocoa.
We believe a good espresso should reveal the natural fruitiness and rich round coffee flavors of traditional Northern Italian style espressos. Montanaro delivers the rewards of a traditional medium espresso roast with a broad range of complex aromas and flavors, a balanced palate of berry, smooth caramel-sugar overtones, rounded chocolate and berry highlights and a satisfying semi-sweet aftertaste. Montanaro is a perfect blend for a classic cappuccino—traditionally a mix of one-third espresso, one-third steamed milk, and one-third foam—and with natural flavorings such as chocolate, cinnamon, or honey, this espresso delivers palate-expanding complexity.
Montanaro is the quintessential classic espresso blend in the Northern Italian tradition.
We manually slow-roast Montanaro to a chocolate-brown Viennese Roast, creating an espresso of stout, sinewy body with full flavors of caramelized sugar and cocoa.
