This ground coffee has the secret ingredient that produces the thicker, more flavorful brew that many of you crave. The intensity of the coffee is determined by the proportion of torrefacto beans in the mix. This bag is a moderate 20%. Every café and restaurant in Spain uses this type of specially roasted coffee and now you can too! This wonderful coffee is next to impossible to find in the U.S.
Pre-ground Torrefacto coffee is rarely imported into the United States, even though it is perhaps the premiere coffee roast in Spain. It is produced by a special roasting process that results in a remarkably robust, full-bodied cup of coffee, without a hint of bitterness. A portion of the quality raw coffee beans are coated with a fine mist of sugar before they are poured in the roaster with the other quality beans. If you have tried to recreate the wonderful café con leche you tasted in Madrid or Granada, your quest is over.
