BUY ESPRESSO AT AROMATICO
In addition to classics from Italy such as espresso from Pellini, Barbera and Lucaffé, a large assortment of German espressos has found its way into Aromatico. Espressi from the small but fine German brands Propeller by five Elephant, 19grams and Kalle Coffee Roasters are very popular with our customers thanks to their taste. Every now and then, it is important to find little gems among the roasters, to dare to try something new, and simply to order an unknown espresso.
AN ESPRESSO MADE FROM 100% ARABICA, 100% ROBUSTA OR WOULD YOU PREFER A BLEND?
For espresso, coffee beans are roasted longer, up to 20 minutes. This not only makes espresso beans darker, it also makes them more aromatic and contains optimally broken down bitter and tannic substances. For espresso preparation on a portafilter machine, a blend with a considerable proportion of Robusta beans is advantageous, because this determines the consistency of the crema. In other words, the greater the proportion of Robusta beans in an espresso blend, the more popular it is for preparation with the portafilter. But beware, this type of bean emphasizes the harmonious bitterness of the espresso. It also affects the caffeine content in the cup. This is, for example, much higher in a 100% Robusta espresso than in a 100% Arabica espresso roast. It's best to try your hand at classic espresso blends and buy an espresso with 80% Arabica and 20% Robusta beans, as well as one with 70% Arabica and 30% Robusta.
Depending on which one appeals more to you in terms of taste, you can continue in this direction, because the selection is huge and you need to find out your own taste preferences.

BUY ESPRESSO COFFEE - THE CAFFEINE EXPRESS
We have now clarified that the caffeine content is somewhat higher in a blend with a lot of Robusta. But how does it generally compare to the caffeine content of classic filter coffee beans? A simple espresso with about 25 ml cup content contains about 30 mg of caffeine. A cup of filter coffee with a content of around 125 ml contains 100 mg of caffeine. This means that although the basic caffeine content of espresso is higher (120 mg/ 100 ml), you drink far less espresso than filter coffee at one time (80 mg/ 100 ml). If it may be a little more, drink an Espresso Doppio, which consists of twice as many espresso beans and twice the amount of water.
So test yourself carefree through the range of Aromatico in the espresso store and discover your favorite blend that you enjoy pure or with milk foam as a cappuccino or latte macchiato. Buy an espresso roast for your espresso machine, fully automatic machine or the mocha pot. For each preparation method, whether as a whole bean or coffee powder, we have put together great tasting packages that distinguish our variety in the online store at Aromatico.
