Ispirazione Napoli is inspired by the intense dark coffee seen in this city . A coffee in Naples is more than just a coffee, it’s a deep-rooted ritual held by the locals. It’s home to the Neapolitan flip coffee pot that turned aristocratic coffee into everyman’s daily habit. It’s home to the suspended coffee tradition of buying two coffees but drinking one and leaving the receipt for the second to be claimed later by someone less well-off. City of grit and beauty, it’s home to short, dark, strong and creamy coffee. We crafted Ispirazione Napoli to honor the city’s rich coffee tradition and the popular bond it creates. It takes real skill to roast to the intense degree they do in Naples. The boldness of Ispirazione Napoli ‘s roast endeavors to pay tribute to the expertise of the local roasters from Italy’s coffee capital. We created Ispirazione Napoli to be our darkest and most intense roast to reflect this traditional Neapolitan coffee. We carefully selected beans that could stand up to this degree of roasting. Ispirazione Napoli delivers an extremely thick body, a creamy mouthfeel, and a delicious bitter note that lingers in its aftertaste.
Exceptionally dark & creamy
We created ISPIRAZIONE Napoli as a blend of robusta from Uganda touched with arabica from South America. We carefully selected coffees that could stand up to the intense roasting this blend calls for – bold coffees that would develop the gritty yet beautiful aromas, tastes, and textures that reflect Naples’ deep-rooted coffee history and traditions.
It takes real skill to roast to the intensity they do in Naples. As we push coffee further into to such extreme roasting degrees, a split-second could mean the difference between a beautiful, intense roast and a carbonised failure. This is why we started with robusta beans that are particularly dense and rich in oils, allowing us to develop it for longer before it burns away. A fine grind helps bringing out the extremely thick body and delicious bitter notes that linger in its aftertaste.
IISPIRAZIONE Napoli pays tribute to the short, strong and dark espressos of this southern Italian coastal city – a thing of grit and beauty. It’s a velvety, creamy cup with an extremely thick body and a kiss of pleasant bitterness in its aftertaste.
