Perugia Blend Coffee Beans by Torrefazione It
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.8 of 8 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Expensive but worth it
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.5 of 5 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Best espresso beans
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.
I tried the Napoli but my wife didn't seem to enjoy it as much as the Perugia and I think it's great as well. I'm glad we tried it and have it on out ship to save program so we never run out.5 of 7 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Great for Espresso
I have been using this coffee almost exclusively now for the last three years in my expresso machine (La Pavoni Europiccola). I order 9 lb about every three months. Bought in bulk, with shipping, cost is less than $12 a pound, delivered to my door. Always arrives fresh in about 3 days from my order date.
I prefer it to any other bean I have found for espresso; very flavorful, sweet, low on bitterness. In fact, I find it hard to stomach some of the espresso I have had at good shops compared to my own home brew.
But taste is personal. This coffee is worth a tasting, then you decide. I suspect you will order more once you have tried it.
