Our salute to traditional Italian-style coffee.
Our recipe begins with a handpicked Brazilian coffee and a rare Typica varietal heirloom coffee, grown organically in the highest elevation of the Haitian mountains. These beans are then roasted with the finest Ethiopian coffee, resulting in a blend that is perfect for filter yet works well with all brewing methods.
“One of life’s great joys is sitting in an Italian café with good friends and enjoying a great cup of coffee or espresso. I challenged my friends at La Colombe to create a selection of coffees that captures these wonderful moments. They have searched the world to find the right blends and then roasted them with expert craftsmanship to achieve that special Italian taste. I hope you will be as pleased as I am with the result. We can’t always be in Rome or Venice, but now we can all be a little closer every day!”

This coffee is a testimony not only to the variety of Typica, but to the resilience of the Haitian farmer, an elegant coffee, unassuming and pleasant, the sort of "velvety smooth" coffee that still means something.
Located in the Dawa Basin area of Oromia, Ethiopia. "These people and these farms are a prime example of old world farming techniques achieving new world ecological needs. I'm proud to have this coffee part of our blends" Jean Philippe Iberti
