This new flavor, the Il Gattopardo blend, is a tribute to all Italian citizens of Sicilian origin who live in Venezuela and who like stronger coffee.
The Carbone Espresso coffee brand launched a new flavor: its first blend that it called Il Gattopardo and which is the result of the union of Arabica coffee (60%) from Sanare, Lara state, and Robusta (40%) from Campo Elías, in Trujillo state.
“A coffee designed for Italian espresso, powerful, lots of flavor, cream and permanence, intense flavor of cocoa and dark chocolate,” the creator of this brand, Pietro Carbone, published on his Instagram account.
This new flavor is also a special tribute to all Sicilians in the country. “I dedicate this blend to my dad, my nonnos, and all the Sicilians who have arrived in Venezuela,” Carbone added.
And it also pays tribute to “Il Gatopardo”, a novel written in 1957 by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa that tells the story of an aristocratic family in Sicily between 1860-1910, in the midst of Garibaldi's landing on the island, and the Italian unification.
The recommendation to best enjoy this coffee, which will be available in 340 g packages at a price between 8 and 14 dollars, is to make it in Greca, espresso or cappuccino.
