Light, delicious, and mellow, this coffee is beautifully balanced. Made with Italian beans, this medium roast is elegant, rounded, and rich on the nose and the palate. Flavors of fruit, malt and cocoa are prominent with every sip, going down smooth and silky.
Sipping this medium roast slowly first thing in the morning is the perfect way to start your day. Do as the Italians do and have a biscotti with your coffee, or a few squares of milk or dark chocolate. If you want it as merienda, cheeses like cheddar, gruyere, and Swiss go well with it. And of course, the classic pairings with donuts and croissants are brilliant.
Alfredo Danesi, expert and curator of secret coffee blends, founded Danesi Caffe in 1905. He led the spread of Roman coffee culture, and what is presently known as traditional Roman espresso. When his son, Giovanni, took over the company, revenue increased, sales expanded, and the international export of Danesi Coffee began.
It was in 1990, under the management of Giovanni’s sons—Alfredo and Roberto, that the process of modernization commenced, still with keeping in line with traditional preparations that set Danesi apart.
Today, it is a fully female-run company, headed by Roberto’s four daughters. The fourth generation of Danesi continues the successful development of the company—keeping up with technological advancements, modern trends and challenges, and training Danesi staff with up-to-date processes, but always honoring the time-old traditions and quality that their forebears passed down.
