Asian Selection, Artisan Coffee Beans 250gr – D’Onofrio Caffè
Different from other continents, in Asia coffee develops a very particular taste due to the monsoon rains that last for months, and the volcanic soils rich in micro and macro elements in a heterogeneous way; hence why the plant receives all the needed nutrients present in the soil. From the small Pacific islands to the mountains of India, this blend is characterised by a rich and slightly acid aroma whit delicate notes of cocoa and tobacco.
In 1960, Antonio D’Onofrio, opened a small bar in the main square of the small town of Pisticci in Basilicata, South Italy.
In the 80s Antonio’s son, Rocco, took over the business and began focusing more on pastry becoming well known by creating his “Bianca” cake, a particular dessert made of ricotta and royal pasta, registered in the patent office, and still today people travel tens of kilometers to taste this wonderful dessert. In the mid-1980s he also opened a wood-fired roasted coffee workshop behind the bar-pastry shop, where he specifically created a blend of coffee for his bar.
Today, 50 year later, Antonio, Rocco’s son, joined the coffee company, with the idea to give unique quality products and above all to have a short supply chain managed entirely by the family. The great peculiarity is the type of roasting, the most ancient and refined, with oak wood. They have always tried to be innovative and, have in fact have created very particular and unique blends, distinguished from each other by the continental origin. This has led coffee connoisseurs to enjoy our product in the most particular niche places and all over the world.
