Highly Aromatic, Dark Roasted Coffee Beans. Intense Roast Espresso consists of 100% Arabica beans from the Central American Countries as well as from Brazil. It combines a strong body and a rich aroma with just the right amount of acidity and a clean aftertaste. The dark roasted beans give it a strong, robust flavour, which is particularly suited to cappucino, cafe latte and small espresso drinks. A great Espresso blend makes the best espresso. Our coffee experts ensure that Douwe Egberts Espresso meets the highest quality standards. They select the beans from the best plantations from all over the world based on taste characteristics and appearance. Our coffee blenders then combine beans from different plantations into a well balanced Espresso blend. A long and slow roasting process ensures that this blend gives a pure espresso taste.
