From the Coffee Bar

Brewed coffee blends

Conca d’oro

Awarded in Italy in 1998, Master Roaster Francesco Curatolo named it ‘Valley of Gold’. An innovative mix of over 7 strictly high-grown Arabica. Full bodied and complex with cocoa and vanilla aromas, and a sweet aftertaste.

French roast

The amazing story of 7 beans roasted to the edge (but not the bitter end). A distinctive richness, complexity, and a certain je ne sais quoi

Espresso natoora

Painstakingly assembled over 12 years ago, this fair-trade, certified organic espresso puts the whole world in a cup. Balanced, full-bodied, with a nutty finish, it’s also perfect for drip coffee lovers. Come together!

Harmony decaf

A polyphony of carefully selected premium beans decaffeinated in a natural water process that preserves flavor subtleties lost in lesser decafs. Rich and full bodied, it makes an uncompromising espresso
