Happy Donkey beans are a blend of South American and African green beans roasted in the Italian way.

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 

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.

    We use this with our DeLonghi machine, it works really well.

    We now get espresso the way it looks in the photos and my husband is pleased !

    I always come back to this coffee for my Sage Barista Pro coffee machine.

    Grinds well and makes a great espresso with a fab crema, good full body taste and has many different taste notes… I would say coffee shop quality coffee but this coffee is even better than any I’ve tried!

    If you appreciate a good no, great cup of coffee then give this blend a go you won’t be disappointed at all 🙂

    Very happy with these beans. I use them with my Gaggia Classic, making espressos and then mixing with water to make an Americano. It has a very nice flavour and not at all bitter, can’t buy a nicer one at any chain coffee shop.

  4. Dainius Serelis (verified owner)

    Wow incredible smell of coffee used with delonghi machine and espresso tasted very well! Foam is excellent flavours as well.

    I’ve tried tons of espresso beans from well known online specialist suppliers. Still keep coming back to these. Great crema. Great aroma. Great taste. (Rocky grinder, Izzo Vivi E61 machine … in case anyone wants to know)

    I recently acquired a Sage coffee machine and a Sage Grinder. Tried several coffees, including the regular favourite I had been using with my moka pot. Some were good, some were not so good, some were not to my taste. But none of them were like the capucinnos I recalled from Italian holidays. Until I tried the Classic Italian from Happy Donkey. Now my new favourite!

  7. Stephen Smith (verified owner)

    Lovely coffee beans. The best I’ve tried hands down. Better than the single origins I’ve tried, including from local roasters and at half the price! Poured my first decent latte art with these too, the crema is perfect.

    Italian – Can’t go wrong, easy to work with giving consistent results in my case very and I mean very good flat white double shot drinks. I have paid double and over the price here for other’s blends and single source beans and the results obtained with a 35 second process from start to finish giving a 25 second actual pour on my machine … perfect! Continue the good work Happy Donkey! Cheers

    Best base every day / all day coffee at good price, very consistent results particularly if left 4 to 7 days after delivery when beans have gassed off after roasting. Giving great crema to top off a double shot 8oz flat white. All good from ordering to delivery to into the cup! 🙂

    These are the go to and benchmark espresso beans. Tried quite a few suppliers over the years, gives consistent crema and taste and i never have to adjust grind on graef grinder set on 10. Next day delivery too.
