Ispirazione Genova Livanto takes its cue from the northern Italian coffee profile who emerged from the important trading city of Genova. Sailors returned from their explorations with Latin American coffees among their treasures. The roasters developed a lighter roast profile that kept the sweet aromas intact and crowned the bouquet with a classic sweet caramel note. We pay tribute to their skill in crafting this sweet roast profile. In Ispirazione Genova Livanto, good acidity and a low bitter note come with the lighter medium roast of predominantly Brazilian, Colombian and Guatemalan Arabicas. Hints of cocoa and spice in its fine crema give way to a lingering aftertaste that evokes that comforting aroma of malty cereal and sweet caramel. It’s a harmonious complexity of tastes and aromas that celebrates the myriad of aromas and flavors the Genovese explorers discovered on their travels around the globe and how the roasters made these aromas sing in the cup.
True to the character of northern Italian coffee Ispirazione Genova Livanto is an Arabica-centric blend with a complexity of tastes. We began with Brazilian Arabica – an approachable, mellow coffee. Into this base we blended reputable, high-grown Arabicas from Central and South America with malty and fruit profiles that develop beautifully during roasting. We chose them because they bring the delicate aromas and rounded taste northern Italian coffee is known for.
