Mako Caffe Quick Review

The Napoletana Caffe Company is located in Pozzuoli, in the historic area of Flegrea in the Neapolitan region, and makes Mako Caffe ESE Pods. The production is specialized and production quality is high as is so many coffee producers in Itlay.

From their website; "Caffe Mako is a product selected for connoisseurs able to appreciate the quality obtained through the selection of the raw coffee by its experts locally, where the coffee beans are grown and also by carefully checking the of the quality of the beans and the reaction during roasting but principally by respecting the traditional formula handed down by the forefathers, who created the famous "Espresso
Napoletano"."

In ripping into the Mako Caffe pouch you get a nice aroma of dark roasted coffee. It brews up nicely in the cup with a decent crema, caramel in color. The flavor in the cup is very dark roasted, with some sharp bitterness backed by some formidable acid. This isn’t a bad thing for me, and most likely for you. Bitterness and acid brings highlights to the cup, and offers bright flavors. Without the acid and bitterness, the cup seems bland and flat without excitement. With that said, bitterness and acid don’t guarantee great flavors in the cup, nor is too much bitterness and acid…. The trick is to get just the right amount.

The Mako Caffe does well with bitterness and acid, but the overall flavor in the cup is a bit weak until I added a bit of sugar; just a bit. The result is a nicely rounded, more full flavor in the cup, filling the mouth with a nice espresso flavor. Net if you like a bit of sweetness in the cup, via added sugar, the Mako Caffe ESE Espresso does well.
