Marcello Strong is our take on Italian espresso; strong, full-bodied and with an extra portion of caffeine. The crema and texture of this espresso blend are very pronounced, resulting in a creamy mouthfeel and a long-lasting taste.
The basis for this blend is 70% Robusta from Rwanda , more precisely from the Gakenke region in the north of the country, from the Abakunakawa washing station. In Rwanda, coffee is produced by many coffee farmers on very small farms - with an average of around 200 coffee trees. This Robusta comes from Bufcoffee, a family business that exports coffee from Rwanda from its own washing stations, as well as other cooperatives, and promotes fair coffee trade for its partner farms as well as the exchange of knowledge.
This strong espresso blend is complemented with an Arabica coffee of the Yellow Catuai variety from Brazil, which makes up 30% of the blend. Farmers grow it on the Fazenda Mangaratiba, which is run by Alessandra Lopes and Elinton Silvério. They pay particular attention to ecological sustainability and social fairness. The beans come to us via Luis and Niklas from Ocafi.
Wenn wir mal wieder eine miserable Nacht aufgrund wacher Kids hatten, ist der Marcello strong einfach das beste Gegenmittel! Hab ich mir dieses Jahr selbst zu Weihnachten bestellt! Passt finde ich auch super im Hafercappuccino!
