The blending skills of our roasters has enabled us to bring you a coffee that has produced a top rate Espresso. Coffee that gives a full flavoured beverage with a good after taste. A first class Crema. As a result the Classic Italian is a fine Espresso blend. Consequently recommended for all to try. Available in trade volume 6 Kilo boxes too.
From wonderful customer Peter: I have tried many new and expensive coffees recently just to see how they compare with the Happy Donkey brand and I have to say that in Taste alone, Honestly, Not even close to Happy Donkey Standards!!
Coffee takes 8 days to mature.
Happy Donkey Classic Italian coffee beans. Sealed in bags. Fitted with a one way valve. The valve enables gases to escape from the beans.
Meanwhile air is unable to enter the bag itself. Secondly coffee beans go stale when exposed to air. Oils evaporate at room temperature. One way valve bags enable the coffee to last for one year without degradation. Coffee is roasted weekly. From roasting coffee takes a week to settle. Flavour is best realised on day eight.
Happy Donkey Classic Italian coffee beans have a strong and rich flavour. We have not come across anyone who does not like this blend. It would be impossible trying to source better coffee for the money. Opened Coffee should always be stored in the fridge. Preferably in a sealed container with a peg used to reseal the top of the bag once opened.
Italian coffee beans work with any espresso machine !
Regardless of size and brand of espresso machine the Italian coffee beans always give a good result. Happiness is guaranteed for Gaggia owners. One of the testing machines for this blend was indeed a Gaggia Baby. The Baby has the same ‘engine’ as the Classic.
The original commercial espresso machine used for testing was the Iberital Lanna. Sadly the Lannas have gone. However Italian coffee beans taste even better the latest Iberital espresso machines. Machines like the IB7, New Ladri and expression love and instantly work well with Happy Donkey classic Italian.
However it does not stop there. For example San Marco machines pull a great long black with this blend. La Spaziale s5,s9 as well as the Rancilio Epoca and San Remo Caferacer Branded models also shone brightly when used.
