Café Tacuba, Mezcla de casa EL SALVADOR
The combination results in a broad flavour profile with lots of aroma and is suitable for many preparation methods. The slightly darker roast also ensures that the fruit acidity is not too intense and should help with the introduction to the world of speciality coffees.
Café Tacuba is a small micro-roasting company from Lucerne. The founding members are Manolo, Amin and Nikolaj. Manolo is a coffee producer from El Salvador and owns his own coffee plantation there. During the harvest, he visits the farms in El Salvador for a long time and buys coffee from his family and friends. In the small restaurant in Lucerne, where coffee can be drunk and beans bought at the same time, they are then roasted on the small 5kg Probat machine. Manolo then takes great pleasure in presenting the different coffees to the customers and advising them.
Transparency is very important to Café Tacuba. The coffees can be traced back to the respective coffee farmer. We maintain a friendly relationship with them and strive for long-term cooperation. The single origin coffees are all handpicked and of the highest quality. By purchasing directly from the coffee farmers, Café Tacuba is able to provide a fair wage for all those involved in the value chain and thus helps to counteract poverty in El Salvador.

Caffè Ferrari Espresso Napoli
100% Arabica. The typical Italian coffee blend for the espresso lover It must be Monday or Thursday. Coffee is roasted at Ferrari on these days. And has been since 1895.Renato Ferrari, 76, owner of Switzerland's oldest and last coffee roastery that still uses coal for heating, stands next to the glowing oven to check the roast of the beans. For half an hour, he repeatedly pulls off handfuls of beans with the sample extractor and places them in the cooling sieve: "It's purely a matter of eye, based on experience. Something you can't explain."At Ferrari, they only use top-class Arabica beans. The roasting process with the machines built in 1895 takes considerably longer than modern roasting methods, as the temperature with the coal fire reaches a maximum of 200 degrees. However, this supposed disadvantage is an advantage, because a large part of the tannic acid is eliminated in this gentle way. This is actually the whole secret of the particularly mild and digestible Caffè Ferrari.Ferrari roasts three aromatic, low-acid coffee blends. He serves the café crème generation with "Grandma's Käfeli", the espresso generation with the roasts "tipo Milano" (light) and "tipo Napoli" (dark).Celebrities such as Ferdi Kübler, Kurt Aeschbacher, Viktor Giacobbo and Mike Müller are among the long-time fans of Ferrari's freshly roasted Caffè.
New York Costa Rica
100% Arabica. One of the best coffees in the world and our insider tip for you. Many consider Costa Rican coffee to be the best in the world, but this is also a matter of debate. But we want to enjoy it here and therefore leave the arguing to others. Everyone agrees, however, that this coffee has a particularly distinctive character of its own. Already the intense aroma announces a racy flavour and a lot of body. The pronounced but never dominant acidity underlines this rare pleasure with its fine and pure taste. The long-lasting finish always remains harmonious.The story of Caffè New York began a good 70 years ago in the small town of Montecatini Terme in Tuscany. Ugo Incerpi, owner of the Bar New York, bought a roasting machine at that time in order to be able to offer an exceptional coffee to the select public who came to the spa town for a cure. The coffee was so excellent that word got around in no time. In the 1950s and 1960s, Mr. Incerpi's son-in-law, Oscar Onori, expanded the "one-man roastery" and began to distribute "Caffé New York" to bars and restaurants throughout Tuscany.

A high-quality blend that combines the fine aroma of washed Central American Arabicas from the high altitudes with the full flavour of the Brazilian Minas Gerais varieties. In combination with the Indian Robusta, this results in a wonderfully aromatic coffee with a beautiful crema. The Mokaflor coffee roasting company has been operating in the heart of Florence since the 1950s and has been run by the Bernini family for several generations. This beautiful tradition allows continuity in the roasting craft and the passing on of coffee knowledge over generations.Mokaflor roasts with a drum roaster, in which the coffee is heated slowly and gradually, which allows its aroma to develop best. After the coffee beans are blended, the coffee goes into degassing silos where it rests and degasses for about 10 days. Before packaging, the blends are tested with a professional espresso machine.
