Lucaffe Coffee Beans
The selection and purchase of our coffee beans is taken care of by Gian Luca Venturelli. Gian Luca personally tastes all the samples that reach the company, and often travels abroad to visit plantations and producers.
We are directly responsible for every stage of the transport of the green beans to our torrefazione. Some varieties, such as the precious Jamaica Blue Mountain, travel in small wooden barrels, to best preserve their unmistakable aroma.
The individual varieties of coffee are blended in carefully worked-out proportions. Our blends are the result of years of passionate research by Gian Luca Venturelli, and are offered in various types to satisfy a range of individual tastes.
In roasting our coffees we follow artisan practice: a gentle roasting process which caresses the coffee. We obtain a product of the highest quality which is also extremely wholesome. The essential oils and aromas are protected and the beans as a result are well-developed and fragrant, with little residual moisture and a moderate caffeine content.
To preserve the aromas for as long as possible, we are particularly careful about packaging our coffee. Packaging is done in a protective atmosphere, with nitrogen being blown in to eliminate the oxygen and resist oxidation. In this way the aromas are preserved and the final drink can always boast an enviable crema.
