According to Chiasso’s website:

Chiasso, pronounced (Kee-ar-so) is Italian for “create an uproar”. It is also the name of a small town on the Swiss Italian border.

Chiasso Coffee roast fresh in Capalaba, Brisbane following the Italian tradition.

The Milano blend is made up of Arabica beans from Papua New Guinea, Guatemala, Colombia and Robusta beans from India(<10%). It makes a strong full-flavoured coffee, ideal for your morning espresso. The blend is typical of the Northern Italian style of roasting. It is roasted medium-dark rather than a true dark.

I decided to try the blend on a leisurely Sunday as a long black. There was a subtle chocolate undertone and overall it was a smooth and rich mouthful.

It definitely made my taste-buds wake up!

Chiasso Coffee is available to buy online.
