Tony D’Angelo of D’Angelo coffee has almost 30 year experience in the coffee industry. He brings that expertise to the creation of the Mercato Caffe Italiano. Using a blend of arabica beans from Brazil and Colombia, Tony has created a truly unique product exclusive to Mercato. Each bag of coffee beans is labelled with a roast date and a best before date to ensure that the beans are consumed at peak flavour and freshness.
Arabica beans are beans tend to have a sweeter, softer taste, with tones of sugar, fruit, and berries. Their acidity is higher, with that winey taste that characterizes coffee with excellent acidity. Arabica coffee makes up 70% of the worlds coffee production.
Caffe Italiano has been specifically designed for stove top percolators (macchinetta) such as the Bialetti Moka Express. A rich and full-bodied brew, perfect for Italian style home coffee.
By blending two varieties together D’Angelo has created a coffee with perfect balance. The Brazilian beans adding undertones of hazelnut and cocoa with a lemon acid finish. The Colombian adds the punchy richness of blackcurrant and dark chocolate, with a honey sweetness and a creamy consistency.
