A microlot topping in cup score (90!): Ethiopia Warqee ☕

A microlot topping in cup score (90!): Ethiopia Warqee ☕

Today we are thrilled to release an outstanding quality Ethiopian coffee that Nero Scuro Specialty Coffees sourced for you. The coffee is immediately available on our online shop.

It comes from the Debo wetmill (Kochere region - Yirgachefe), which collects, sorts and processes cherries from about 750 small producers in the area. Each farmer grows less than 1500 trees with a production of 100 to 200 grams of green coffee per tree. In a few words, a truly rare microlot!

This coffee is a Grade 1 Ethiopian Heirloom. It has been grown and harvested at about 2.000masl and has been processed with a fully washed approach. The SCAA cup score tops to 90!

In the cup we found jasmine and violet, citrus, tangerine, marzipan and green apple acidity. It a delicate and elegant, yet very structured coffee.

 

Get a bag of this coffee, freshly roasted for you, from our online store.

Unexpected aromas in this new microlot from El Salvador

Unexpected aromas in this new microlot from El Salvador

We just finished to roast profile a new microlot from El Salvador, which is now available on our webshop.

The Finca Don Jaime is located in the Chalatenango region, north-west of El Salvador, at an altitude of about 1600m a. The finca is extended over only seven hectares: of which three are grown at Pacas and four at Pacamara.

The exclusive single-origin microlot that Nero Scuro has obtained and roasted for you is composed only of selected Pacas beans, a natural mutation of Bourbon, appeared at the end of the '40s right in El Salvador.

The microlot has been processed by removing the skin but leaving all the pulp on the bean (honey pulped process), fermented for 18 hours and finally dried for two weeks.

In the cup this coffee is very rich and sweet. We tasted notes of raisins, lemon zest, cherry and tropical fruits. This El Salvador is very special and unique. We love it as it departs from the most classic flavors of this single origin, which usually recalls the conventional roasted peanuts.

Small Change to This Week's Roasting Schedule

Small Change to This Week's Roasting Schedule

There will be a small variation to the roasting schedule on the week ending the 5th of June, 2016.

Due to an Italian bank Holliday ("Festa della Repubblica") we will anticipate to Friday 3rd, as opposed to Saturday 4th, the roasting day. All the orders will be shipped as per usual on Monday 6th.

All the orders placed after the 10am of Friday 3rd will be roasted on the 11th of June and shipped on the 13th of June, as per usual schedule.

Thanks for your support.

Antica Dimora: un ristorante a tavolo singolo che serve Nero Scuro

Antica Dimora: un ristorante a tavolo singolo che serve Nero Scuro

Siamo sempre orgogliosi di leggere recensioni positive su caffetterie e ristoranti che servono i caffè specialty di Nero Scuro. Ci siamo appena imbattuti in una recensione su laVINIum.com che vogliamo condividere con voi.

L'Antica Dimora di Mauro Carrazza è un ristorante a tavolo singolo, di qualità estrema ed a prenotazione obbligatoria situato a Capranica (VT), a circa un'ora di macchina da Roma. 

Dalla recensione: “E' un piacere vedere [Mauro] preparare i piatti, lo fa con maestria e quasi senza far rumore, le lunghe cotture le fa rigorosamente nel coccio, solo con questo materiale puoi cucinare una zuppa per oltre tre ore esaltandone i sapori.”

Mauro serve i nostri caffè single origin specialty estraendoli con la classica Moka italiana: 

"...uno spazio tutt'altro che secondario per il caffè, per il quale Mauro ha trovato un piccolo fornitore che vende pregiate confezioni monovarietali provenienti da Burundi, Colombia, Guatemala, Etiopia, Costarica, El Salvador, Kenya e Messico. Noi abbiamo bevuto il Burundi, davvero ottimo e per nulla amaro, tanto che non abbiamo sentito la necessità di aggiungervi zucchero."
