    The Coffee: Bid adieu to ordinary coffee and embrace the bold, intense flavor of our Italian Roast. This specialty-grade blend of Arabica and Robusta beans undergoes a slow roasting process, resulting in our darkest roast offering. The extended roasting time develops a full-bodied, robust flavor profile with a slightly sweet finish, making it the perfect choice for those who crave a strong and satisfying coffee experience. Whether enjoyed as an espresso or brewed using your favorite method, this Italian Roast is sure to leave a lasting impression.

    The Inspiration: This coffee pays homage to Ernest Hemingway's classic novel, A Farewell to Arms, which tells the story of an American ambulance driver serving on the Italian front during World War I. Set against the backdrop of the war's brutality and the protagonist's doomed romance, the novel explores themes of love, loss, and the search for meaning in a chaotic world. Our A Farewell to Espresso embodies the bold spirit and unwavering intensity of Hemingway's prose, offering a coffee experience that is as powerful and memorable as the novel itself. Raise a cup to the enduring legacy of this literary masterpiece and savor the rich, complex flavors of our Italian Roast.
