What is Lungo Espresso
The word ‘lungo’ is Italian for long, which describes the way in which a lungo espresso is pulled. This style of espresso shot uses the same amount of coffee grounds as an espresso, but twice as much water. The result is a more mild and smooth espresso that is also less bitter. This brewing method brings out the unique notes of the Arabica beans sourced for our Lungo Arabica Forte.
The Harvesting Process of Arabica Beans
The Arabica bean is one of the most economically important species of plants in the world and is native to the southwestern Ethiopia. Today it is grown in many countries as well, such as Mexico and Peru, where our beans for the Lungo Arabica Forte are sourced. In contrast to the Robusta, Arabica beans are larger and more elongated. Arabica beans are less equipped to handle heat, wind or humidity, which means they grow better in the climates closer to the equator.
