Happy Donkey beans are a blend of South American and African green beans, roasted in the traditional Italian style.
Our skilled roasters have expertly crafted a coffee blend that produces an outstanding Espresso. This coffee delivers a full-bodied flavor with a satisfying aftertaste and a first-class Crema. The Classic Italian blend is a superior Espresso blend that we highly recommend everyone to try. It is also available in trade volume 5-kilogram boxes.
Here’s what one of our valued customers, Peter, had to say: “I have recently tried many new and expensive coffees to compare them with the Happy Donkey brand, and I must say that in terms of taste alone, they don’t even come close to Happy Donkey’s standards!”
Our coffee beans take eight days to reach their peak maturity.
Happy Donkey Classic Italian coffee beans are carefully sealed in bags fitted with a one-way valve. This valve allows gases to escape from the beans while preventing air from entering the bag. Exposure to air causes coffee beans to go stale, and the oils evaporate at room temperature. With our one-way valve bags, the coffee can maintain its freshness and quality for up to one year without any degradation. We roast our coffee weekly, and it takes a week for the flavors to settle, reaching their best on the eighth day.
Happy Donkey Classic Italian coffee beans boast a strong and rich flavor that is universally loved. We have yet to come across anyone who doesn’t enjoy this blend. It would be nearly impossible to find better coffee for the price. Once opened, it is recommended to store the coffee in the refrigerator, preferably in a sealed container, and use a peg to reseal the top of the bag.
Italian coffee beans work exceptionally well with any espresso machine!
Whether you own a small or large espresso machine, regardless of the brand, our Italian coffee beans consistently deliver excellent results. Gaggia owners can be assured of guaranteed satisfaction, as one of the test machines for this blend was the Gaggia Baby, which shares the same ‘engine’ as the Classic.
During our testing, the original commercial espresso machine used was the Iberital L’anna, although it is no longer available. However, Italian coffee beans taste even better when brewed with the latest Gaggia espresso machines.
But it doesn’t stop there! For example, San Marco machines pull a great long black with this blend, and the Espresso Rosa, as well as the Gaggia and San Remo Cafe Racer Branded models, also showcase its brilliance.
