This is a truly great coffee for espresso. I've tried many different roasts and keep coming back here. It's smooth and slightly nutty, with a chocolate finish. No bitterness or bad aftertaste. I ran out and bought some from a well-known large national chain and compared to this it was tasteless to drink and afterward tasted like I'd swallowed a dead rat compared to this. The only downside is that once you get it you won't want to drink anything else.
Since this company (Torrefazione) and its cafes were acquired and promptly closed by Starbucks, the quality control of the various Torrefazione blends is doubtful. The blends now prepared by Starbucks varies widely. The original objective was not, of course, to expand the coffee offering range of Starbucks but to erase a competitor. If they had continued the quality of Torrefazione I would have no complaints but Starbucks does not.
I have lived and worked in the coffee-loving Pacific Northwest and western Europe. Torrefazione was the best coffee house experience. Perugia whole bean make the best espresso. I hear Starbucks is discontinuing Torrefazione whole bean and will sell ground only. To make great espresso, you must grind your own beans. This is a terrible mistake. Please write Starbucks and let them know.
We first tasted this brand of coffee at a restaurant in Friday Harbor, Seattle. Promptly fell in love with it as we do love the coffee in Italy. By chance we found the real Torrefazione shop in Palermo during our trip to Sicily. We wish we brought an extra suitcase. They would ship it to US but the postage was pretty prohibitive - making this the next best way to enjoy our coffee, buying it through Cooking.com.
I had this coffee at the Coast Hotel in Calgary. While not a 5-star hotel, it did not stint on the free coffee packets it gave to guests for their coffeemaker in the room.
Torrefazione Italia's Perugia Blend is absolutely the best coffee I've had, not just in a hotel, but it beats Starbucks' own coffeehouse coffee. I say that because Torrefazione is a division of Starbucks. I kept one of the coffee wrappers, tracked it down once at home, and ordered it on the spot from Cooking.com which has a better deal than Amazon.
If you enjoy..well, are a coffee addict like me, you'll love the rich, definitive taste of Perugia Blend with none of the bitter taste that some roasted coffees have.
My husband is very fond of Torrefazione Italia coffee and where we live, we have been unable to find it to purchase. I was quite pleased to see this product offered through @Cooking.com. He was very happy to find this in his Easter basket.
What I love about the Perugia coffee is that it doesn't give me the jitters and the flavor is full and cocoa-like. I think the beans they use are Robusto beans and I feel that the Robusto bean is actually a better bean and proper roasting is the key to it's consistently rich flavor. I make it in a French press (don't know any other way to make it).
All of Torrefazione Italia's coffees are terrific but the Perugia Blend is my personal favorite. It's a true medium roast without any bitterness. The beans are a tad oily so you may have to clean your grinder more often than with a drier roast. The price is better suited to a pound rather than 12 oz., but it is a great cup of coffee
Having used this coffee before, I was accustomed to it's taste and was anticipating repeating the pleasure. These beans had a definite burned flavor greatly detracting from the pleasure I had been anticipating.
This is one of the best tasting coffees that I have found outside of Italy and it is a shame that its quality has gone down.
