After travelling throughout Italy for the finest espresso coffee, Manhattan Espresso’s proprietors selected what is known as Italy’s best, Illy espresso. Illy carefully chooses nine types of Arabica coffee beans from across the globe for its award winning espresso blend. By employing exacting standards, Illy’s selection process helps ensure consistent and pleasant taste results. The beans are carefully selected using electronic sorting technology, rejecting unripe or fermented beans that can ruin an entire batch. After a slow roasting and air cooling process the coffee is packaged in unique pressurized tins with nitrogen. This exclusive aging process is superior to air packing or vacuum sealing because it dramatically enhances the aroma and aftertaste by letting the beans mature without becoming stale. Only after this rigorous selection and roasting process does the coffee meet the highest quality standards and receive the Illy label.
