Aroma

On the nose, Gigolo is intense and bold, immediately revealing its dark roasting. The rich sweetness of demerara sugar, caramel and malted barley is balanced with the bitterness of cocoa and mild, fruity freshness. Notes of cinnamon, almonds and oak add the finishing touches to the pleasant complexity of this espresso.

Taste

The taste of Gigolo opens up with a rich flavour of roasted cocoa nibs and the dry bitterness of cocoa powder. Dark chocolate and sweet, fruity acidity of red apples follow and balance the opening cocoa salvo. The aftertaste is long, pleasant and gently bitter.

Extraction

The extraction takes longer than usual and produces plentiful crema.
