The Master Roaster

Sandwiched between Naples and Rome, John took himself and his three beans to a small village to meet his close friend, Mario di Baia, who was an out-and-out coffee roasting master. He worked alongside Mario in the Roastery, realising that any good Espresso blend worth its salt needed at least a minimum of seven beans to balance the taste. He hadn’t been using nearly enough beans to create the perfect blend!

The Perfect Blend was Born

Working side-by-side with Mario, another six beans were added to the blend, spanning across other awesome coffee bean regions, including Indonesia, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, India and South America. It was with the addition of these beans that the first blend of Rossetti Coffee was born.

And so, with John’s coffee and the skills of the artisan Master Roaster down in Italy, he knew he had something special to bring back to the UK.

Ascaso Coffee Machines

John has just started using Ascaso Coffee Machines, which are designed to be reliable workhorses, perfect for extracting coffee all day long.

The Importance of the Grinder

Did you know the grinder is the most important piece of equipment when it comes to extracting good coffee? John describes the grinder as like “the lens to a camera” – if you haven’t got a good lens, you can’t take a decent picture! John uses Fiorenzato Srl latest grinders, as it’s key to grind the beans fresh. The old-style grinders on the market have a hopper that the ground coffee sits in which goes stale within 30 minutes. With a grinder on demand, you grind instantly and the coffee is extracted within seconds. Rossetti Coffee only uses the latest on demand grinders from Fiorenzato.
