Mondays bring with them an exhaustible amount of blues – but we have you sorted! Our CAFFÈ BORBONE BLU.
One of our favourites is a Neapolitan Roasted Arabica with the perfect amount of Robusta. The composition of this ESE pod has resulted in a deliciously rich Espresso that is balanced with a mild acidity.
Caffe Borbone Espresso pods are customized for pod machines and porta filter machines only – E.S.E pods (Easy Serving Espresso). No grinding, no measure of the ground coffee and no mess. E.S.E pods are the easiest way of making a superb Espresso (Coffee, Cappuccino) with the benefits of a hassle free preparation and perfect results such as a thick crema at the right temperature.
Caffè Borbone is a long established roaster in the Naples region. The balance and flavour of their coffees will confirm that the traditional roasting ethos is still very much intact. Caffè Borbone is roasting and blending coffees for over 28 years.
Coffee may not have been invented in Italy but the coffee culture that we know and love did originate there. Here are a few regular coffee jargons to remind you of the significant difference between an Espresso and a Doppio, or a Cappuccino and a Caffe Latte:
Espresso : known a Caffe in Italy, served in a 3 oz or demitasse cup. Strong in taste with a rich bronze froth known as a crema on top.
Doppio : Simply a double espresso.
Ristretto: More concentrated than a regular espresso that is made with less water.
Lungo or Caffe Americano: An Espresso made with more water – opposite a Ristretto.
Macchiato: Espresso that is “marked” with a dollop of steamed milk on top.
Corretto: Espresso that is “corrected” with grappa, cognac or sambuca.
Cappuccino: Espresso with foamed milk and containing equal parts espresso, steamed milk and foamed milk.
Cappuccino scuro: Cappuccino prepared with less milk and is a darker color.
Cappuccino chiaro: Cappuccino prepared with more milk (but less than a caffe latte) and is lighter in color.
Caffe’ latte: Espresso made with more milk than a cappuccino but only a small amount of foam. In Italy it is usually a breakfast drink.
Latte macchiato: Steamed milk that is “marked” (sometimes ornately) with a shot of espresso coffee.
Emozione coffee is a distributor of fine Italian ESE coffee pods. So what exactly does that mean? We may not package our coffee like Nespresso or Nescafe – but our coffee is not only rooted in a deep Italian tradition for premium coffee, but is forward-thinking in its pursuit of environmental sustainability .
ESE = Easy Serving Espresso
What it is: A small packed coffee pod covered in paper that is biodegradable. Unlike regular coffee pods that are contained in capsules, ESE pods are round pods that you place inside your espresso machine’s to have your machine brew a perfectly measured shot of espresso. Because of the design of the ESE pod, the coffee is known to taste much fresher than regular capsules.
