One of the many things upon which the Ferrari family pride themselves upon is their choice of bean. The ‘blend’ as it is known can’t be overstated; it is the bedrock of the flavour and when it’s right, it hits all the right notes.
Few are brave enough to look beyond what they know and have always been comfortable with. However, the Ferrari family are experts in coffee and by applying their family traditions and vast knowledge of coffee beans and blends, they continually source beans from throughout the world.
Their skills were honed using the famously flavoursome Arabica beans of Ethiopia, where the soil and climate work hand-in-hand; growing beans known for their rich enticing aroma.
However, nowadays, Ferrari sources their beans from a variety of locations.
A signature blend of Ferrari is the Piacentina blend of coffee. Grown in the Emilia Romagna region of Northern Italy, this is a blend to savour. Encompassing rich chocolaty overtones, the Piacentina beans provide the perfect aroma and strong flavour to create an exquisite espresso for the more traditional coffee drinkers. Such is the quality of the Piacentina bean though, that it is also commonly used to make deliciously full-bodied cappuccinos.
The Emilia Romagna region is well known throughout the world and it isn’t just the Piacentina coffee beans that add a swirl of luxury to this beautiful Italian region. One of the richest regions to be found in Europe, Emilia Romagna has produced the likes of luxury brands Lamborghini and Pagani. Steeped in Italian culture, it is no surprise that the Ferrari family use beans from such a distinguished region of this cultured country.
One of the Ferrari family’s guarantees is that every cup of their coffee you will undoubtedly enjoy is guaranteed to be truly golden.
