Arpeggio has an intense and balanced aroma that is pleasant yet heavier. Its robust roasting is coming through with the bitter tones that are mellowed by the acidity of sour cherries and the sweetness of caramel. Notes of dark chocolate, almonds and tropical spices further enrich this characterful espresso.


The taste of Arpeggio is also intensely pleasant, showcasing the dark roasting from the first sip. The tall crema is responsible for the initial creamy mouthfeel followed by the acidity of sour cherries and passion fruit. This acidity later changes into a short-lived almond sweetness. At the end comes intense herbal bitterness which continues into the aftertaste.


The extraction is flawless and produces beautifully rich crema.
