Palermo inspired our long, dark roasting style plus a high Robusta content: hallmarks of this Southern city. At a crossroads of influence from African and Arab traditions, multicultural Palermo made us dream. The result is an exceptionally intense, syrupy, woody and spicy coffee, crowned with very dark, thick crema.
Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar ’s daring intensity comes from blending four distinct coffees – it speaks to the multicultural heritage of Palermo. It’s a coastal city sitting on the edge of three continents, with centuries of Arabian, Byzantine and Spanish cultural influence shaping it. We picked four bold coffees to pay homage to this history. Traditionally you’d look only to unwashed Robusta to bring brute strength. And that’s what you’ll find dominating the coffee blends of southern Italy. But our washed Robusta is a rare find that balances out the Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar coffee pod with its clean taste and creamy texture. These Robusta farmers process their coffee with the same care that washed Arabica farmers do. It helps add that elegant touch to the robustness in Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar . The other coffees are Latin American Arabicas that lend a natural sweetness to Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar.
We split roast the coffees to bring out distinct qualities of each coffee in the Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar blend. Most of the Arabica and Robusta get an intense roast to develop their bitterness and body. We give the unwashed Robusta a shorter and lighter roast to bring out some of the finer aromatic notes. Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar ’s roast style reflects the Arab and African influence you see across southern Italy’s dark and intense coffees.
Did you catch the scent of spice drifting across the waters from Africa? You’ll taste the audacious bitterness and peppery notes leaping out through the thick syrupy body. Together the Arabica and Robusta balance each other out in this espresso. It reflects both the Palermo coastal lifestyle and its rich history. You can sit back in the sun and enjoy your Ispirazione Palermo Kazaar on the terrace, with everything from the food on your plate to the architecture surrounding you whispering the histories of all who’ve passed through Palermo.
