Miscela Extra Bar⎮Italy's Best Espresso Beans⎮ Non-Oily Coffee Beans

Miscela means "blend" in Italian.  The Extra Bar is our boldest blend. We have created a blend of beans, roasted perfectly, that any espresso aficionados dreams about.    In fact, Italian baristas insist that the best espressos are made from a blend of beans. 

Miscela Extra Bar is a blend that has been roasted on the darker range of medium/dark spectrum.  The colour of the beans is a chocolate brown. Extra Bar blend produces an espresso with toasty and pleasurable hint of bitterness. 

These beans are not oily and have been blended specifically to use in superautomatic espresso machines. 

This chart shows where this blend sits within the medium-dark roast profile that Espresso Canada sticks to, because, we know, this is the roast profile best suited for brewing espresso.

Bean Variety

Origin of beans:  India and Brazil.  This blend is comprised of high grade Robusta beans.

Ideal Brewing Method

Specifically blended for Manual or Superautomatic espresso machines.  The minimal surface oil on the beans ensures grinders do not clog.    

Stove Top Espresso Makers, Drip, Percolators, Cold Brew.  The beans can be ground to your desired coarseness.

Aroma 

Toast Like and Chocolaty :  Aroma refers to the smell of the coffee. It is responsible for many of the flavours perceived by the tongue.

Flavour

Smokey with a pleasurable hint of bitterness . Describes the overall and combined sensations / perception of the coffee's distinctive aromatic and taste characteristics, the fusion of body, acidity , aroma and aftertaste.Body

Full bodied, Lively and Hearty. This describes the physical property- heaviness or mouthfeel- of  the coffee coating the tongue.

Acidity

Pronounced:  Without acidity, a coffee will tend to taste dull and lifeless.  A good acidity will lean towards being  sweet, crisp and tart - each enhancing the other qualities in the coffee.

Body

Bold. and Punchy  This describes the physical property- heaviness or mouthfeel- of  the coffee coating the tongue.

Packaging

Packaged in a kraft bag with a one way valve engineered to release gases and prevent air from entering the bag which ensures freshness and optimal flavour.  The resealable bag is ideal for storing beans in the original packaging helping the beans stay fresh after opening.  Beans will remain fresh in this bag for 3 to 4 weeks after opening.  

Storage: Never store beans in a freezer because the moisture will adversely affect the taste and the moisture can clog your grinder. Beans will also absorb the flavours of nearby foods.

High quality coffee beans! We have bought 3 different blends and enjoy them all. Best way to start the day with a great cup of coffee from our Saeco Pico Baristo coffee maker and beans purchased here.

Your beans are excellent, didn’t think my husband would switch from his current brand. He says your beans have more flavor and smooth. And I agree with him!
