Portofino was born with the idea to create a more modern dark blend.
So what is a modern dark blend, you might be asking yourself?
It's maybe not so clear cut, but for us, it simply means a coffee with cleaner flavour, loads of sweetness and made of seasonally selected beans.
With that goal in mind, we settled on Nicaraguan beans from Finca Jesper supported by Brazilian beans from Fazenda Progresso. These are excellent beans of which we just received the 2021 harvest. We have a lot of experience working with these beans and by approaching the roasting slightly differently we were confident in achieving our goals.
The roasting of processes starts slow, at unusually low temperatures, this allows the coffee to warm up, soaking up the heat, evenly. After which we turn the gas to the maximum to reach our end temperature in the shortest time possible. This retains all the sweetness and most of the origin flavour while still delivering a darker roast."
