The art of making coffee
Caffè Ottavo was created from experience in and passion for coffee roasting, an all-Italian art passed down through the generations, giving us the true “Made in Italy” espresso.
We travel all over the world in search of the best coffee varieties. From the best plantations, raw coffee beans of the Arabica and Robusta variety arrive at our facilities in Gravina, Apulia with their characteristic grassy smell, waiting to release all their flavour.
Once they are selected, the coffee varieties are blended to create a drink with the right body, aroma and flavour, but it is during the roasting process that the bean acquires its character and releases all the sensory properties that make it special.
No detail is left to chance: time is a fundamental ingredient for a perfect cup of coffee, and this is why our expert roasters have carefully studied and established the roasting times necessary to precisely determine the particular aromatic profile of Caffè Ottavo.
After roasting, the next process is grinding, which is carefully calibrated to obtain the desired length of the coffee in the cup.
Technology is also a key ingredient in our coffee production process: the primary packaging is carried out in a protected environment, with machinery that not only guarantees safety and integrity in terms of hygiene, but also helps the coffee keep its fragrance and aroma for longer.
Just one coffee, so many ways to enjoy it!
