Filicori Zecchini Coffee
The secret of the Filicori Zecchini coffee blends lies entirely in the careful attention to two elements: the careful selection of the coffee beans, chosen by a group of well-trusted suppliers chosen over the years, and the particular attention dedicated to the roasting process. In fact, for years, the company has chosen to carry out separate roasting for each of its single-origin coffees: because every type of green coffee has its own optimum roasting time and, consequently, it is possible to obtain the best flavor from each type of bean.
These are the characteristics that are important to Filicori Zecchini coffee, not just the appreciation of millions of Italians, experts or simply coffee lovers, but also the prestigious Italian espresso certificate “Espresso Italiano Certificato”, a guarantee of absolute quality.
The Certificate “Espresso Italiano Certificato”
Only the coffee producers that faithfully respect the specifications drafted in 1998 by the Italian National Espresso Institute, Istituto Nazionale dell’Espresso Italiano, can label their products with the logo “Espresso Italiano Certificato”. Filicori Zecchini obtained this certification in 2004.
The characteristics that an Italian espresso coffee must have are well-established: it must be obtained by a blend of roasted beans of different origins, ground by the bartender directly at the moment of preparation and extracted by the machine so that the resulting drink has certain organoleptic properties.
Precise indications also relate to the crema, which must be hazelnut colored, without a wide mesh or bubbles. As is underlined in the dominance of smell and taste over the other senses: the aroma must be intense, with tones of flowers, fruit, toasted bread, and chocolate, while the flavor must be rounded, velvety and balanced.
The result is a harmony of sensations which, those who have tasted Filicori Zecchini coffee, know how to recognize.
