If you’re considering something special for Valentine’s Day (other than our contest) check out the Roasted Grape.
Some people consume coffee for its intriguing flavour and aroma; others consider it a necessity to the beginning of their morning…regardless, that first cup of coffee in the morning can set your mood for the whole day.
Coffee is seen as the drink where people come together, and either engage in conversation over an extended period of time or revel in a peaceful moment. It’s also been said that coffee is the new wine and there is definitely an intersection of coffee lovers and wine lovers. Many of us love both and some of us can get into long conversation discussing the varietals, best growing regions and the characteristics of our favourite wine or coffee. One can get lost in the experience of drinking either and both are big in Italy which is one of the reasons we have chosen to serve Caffe Umbria at the Roasted Grape Cafe.
Caffe Umbria is a coffee roaster based in Seattle but the family’s roots go back to the 1940’s, when Ornello Bizzarri built his roastery in Perugia, Italy. Third generation in a family of roasters, Roaster Emanuele Bizzarri has always had coffee in his blood – from his grandfather Ornello to his father Umberto. Equipped with a state-of-the-art roaster and a great passion for blending, Caffe Umbria captures the true essence of Italian-style coffee.
