Illy Single Origin MonoArabica Whole Bean and iperEspresso Capsules
Illy has released a set of single origin coffees for use in the iperEspresso compatible machines or simply to be bought as a wholebean coffee. Personally, I like the concept of a special iperEspresso version where you might need a little variety from the standard versions; hard to do if you can only use capsules.
The whole bean and iperEspresso capsules come in three varieties:
- Brazil - "The lush and verdant forests, deep in the Cerrado Mineiro region, create an enchanting landscape with well-defined wet and dry seasons, which provide one of the world’s finest beginnings for coffee. MonoArabica Brazil offers a full-bodied boldness and smooth, rich taste with subtle hints of decadent chocolate. Savor the start of your day with MonoArabica Brazil."
- Guatemala - "Perhaps no other place on Earth can compare to the ideal conditions of the remote Huehuetenango Mountains. This is a place where Arabica beans are grown at just the right altitude, with the perfect combination of warmth and coolness inviting the warm winds from Mexico and thriving in the shade of the Maya forest. This medium-bodied coffee is strong, yet sweet with just a whisper of chocolate, caramel and honey. Find delight in the first moments of morning with MonoArabica Guatemala."
- Ethiopia - "Legend has it that coffee as fuel for the human mind has its origins in Ethiopia. Deep in the tropical forests, the Yirgacheffe region has rich and fertile soil where coffee is shade-grown and handpicked. It’s in this geography that Arabica coffee is characterized by its delicate, seductive taste with gentle notes of jasmine and citrus discoverable in each sip of medium bodied coffee. Create a small moment of joy with MonoArabica Ethiopia."
Thanks to Howard for sending this in.
