Gusto Crema Blend by Caffé Umbria Review |
  • Caffé Umbria

    Seattle, Washington
  • Gusto Crema Blend

Roast: Dark Review Date: April 2002
Origin: Not disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Citrus and floral notes float atop pungent fermented fruit tones in the small cup; nut and chocolate notes complicate the finish. Maintains its leathery, spicy complexity in milk, adding a rounder and softer chocolate finish. 88 straight espresso, 89 w/milk)

Notes: The lightest roasted of four espresso blends offered by Caffé Umbria, a new wholesale roasting company built around the skills of roast master Emanuele Bizzarri, one of the founders of the famous roasting company Torrefazione Italia. Visit or call for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Probably at its best as a straight shot or cappuccino, but its big body and full-throated complexity make themselves felt even in large quantities of milk.
