If you visit a café or restaurant in Spain and order coffee, it is very likely you’ll be served torrefacto coffee – a thicker, more flavorful brew than what is usually served here in the United States. Despite being the coffee of choice for many Spaniards, torrefacto coffee is quite hard to find as it rarely imported into the United States. If you’ve been attempting to recreate the delicious café con leche you enjoyed in Spain, your search is over.
To produce torrefacto coffee, a portion of the whole coffee beans are coated with a fine mist of sugar prior to roasting. These sugar coated beans are blended with natural roast beans and the proportion of torrefacto beans in the mix determines the intensity of the coffee. This ground blend is 50% torrefacto and yields a full-bodied, robust cup of coffee with none of the bitterness you expect in a regular cup of coffee.
