Total judgment


The great complexity in flavours and acidity makes this coffee perfect for every situation and brewing method. We suggest a medium roast to enjoy its complex acidity and an incredibly balanced sweet note reminding a candied apple. The darker roast profile will enhance more the viscosity and show a more syrupy and caramel like aftertaste. Bergamot, red delicious apple and candied fruit notes will make you step into a kaleidoscope of flavours that distinguish this n.1 specialty blend.

Suggested coffee ratio:

ESPRESSO: 17 gr for double shot
MOKA: 16 gr for 3 cups pot
FILTER: 20 gr for 300 ml (2 cups)


We offer 2 levels of roast to satisfy each palate and taste preference. Each level develops different flavors and aroma profiles. Here are the main characteristics for each different profile and the specifications of colour and development time. We normally use Lighttells colorimeter you can buy from our shop here.
