Melitta’s new espressos
Melitta Professional Coffee Solutions has launched three espressos for the UK market: Espresso Blend, crafted for a milk-based coffee experience; Espresso Samba, consisting of 100% Arabica coffee beans sourced from some of the most sought after regions within Brazil; and Espresso Nature, which is 100% Arabica and 100% Rainforest Bod Alliance Accredited coffee.
One of La Marquise International’s best selling products is Pellini Top, a blend of high-quality Arabica coffee, made from coffee beans that have been selected directly from their countries of origin. The slow-roasting process and controlled ripening enhances the taste and aroma of the Pellini Top, giving it a delicate combination of flower and honey scents along with cocoa and liquorice scents, according to La Marquise International’s in-house professional barista, Armiel Alkuino.
