A superb blend of select high-grown Arabicas including 40% of finest Indian speciality coffee ‘Mysore Nuggets’ handpicked from the Baba Budan Giri mountain range of Chikkamagaluru in Karnataka.
In the cup, this high-quality Arabica blend is full-bodied with a beautiful sweetish aroma, a note of chocolate, an aftertaste of caramel and just a mild hint of bitterness.
The perfect espresso is known in barista circles as 'the god shot' because they figure that it's a cup that would taste heavenly, even to the most discerning palette. Given that he has access to good quality coffee, the Barista seeks to achieve this by extracting the over 800 prized aromatic ingredients found in roasted and ground coffee, through control over the quality of the water, equipment, temperature, pressure, timings and storage factors.
A cappuccino is a coffee-based drink made primarily from espresso and milk. It consists of one-third espresso, one-third heated milk and one-third milk foam.
In 1683, soldiers fighting for Marco d'Aviano, a monk from the Capuchin monastic order, found a hoard of coffee following a victory over the Ottomans in the Battle of Vienna. Turkish coffee being too strong for European taste, was diluted with cream and honey. The resulting brown beverage matched the robes of the monk, and was dubbed 'Cappuccino' after the order.
