Coffee by Espresso di Manfredi

 A medium-roast blend of high quality Arabicas from South America, and fine Robustas from Asia. Classico is a nod to the classic Italian espresso blend, with Arabicas providing balanced fruit and chocolate sweetness and Robustas adding body, strength and complexity. A nuanced coffee with elegant acidity and a long, lingering finish.
