    B for Blend

    Published on 26 July 17

    Coffee blends are the coffee roaster’s secret recipes, created by mixing different types of coffee with the aim of creating a unique and unmistakable aromatic profile.

     

    Blending is a genuine art form, that was invented by Luigi Lavazza more than a hundred years ago. Today, it is in the hands of the experts of our Research & Development Department, that selects the best quality product, travelling to coffee-producing countries and tasting their green coffee.

     

     

    The best blends include up to six different types of coffee (called ‘origins’) and can be 100% Arabica, sweet and fragrant, or a mix of Arabica and Robusta, for a full-bodied, bold taste.

    Washed Arabica is a finer and more acidic coffee than unwashed Arabica, which is sweeter and more balanced, while a washed Robusta will have a rounder taste than the unwashed.

     

    The taste of the blend also depends on the origin of the varieties: a prevalence of Brazilian origins will give a full and chocolatey taste, while from central-American origins deliver more aromatic and delicate blends.

    Particular attention is paid to the decaffeinated blends: the starting point is coffee that is decaffeinated through a natural method based on carbon dioxide.
