What is the best Italian coffee? It’s hard to answer this question. But today, in this article, we will try to do that, based on Bell Italia’s data relating to the 5 coffees most requested by our customers around the world.
Let’s start with a very interesting fact: according to some recent research, each person consumes on average almost 5 kg of coffee every year. Italy, the homeland of espresso coffee, is just above the average, with “only” 6 kg per capita and an annual expense of about 250 euros per family. Surprisingly, Northern European consumers lead the ranking (Finland 12 kg/year, Norway 10, Iceland and Denmark 9). Americans, great lovers of long coffee, consume just over 4 kg per capita each year. Portugal (2.5 kg) is at the tail end of Europe, while in Chile less than 500 g per capita of coffee is consumed every 365 days.
Numbers aside, it is clear that each country has its own preferences in terms of coffee: long, shaken, Turkish, macchiato, etc. But there is a variant that makes even the most diverse palates agree with each other: espresso coffee. Each cup is a sip of Italy, but not only. The authentic flavor of roasted beans, the aromas of faraway lands, the unique fragrance, the gurgling of the Moka, transform the simple act of drinking a coffee into a moment of pure pleasure. Of course, the best Italian coffee can be found at the bar. But even at home, it is possible to have excellent results. For example, using the latest generation coffee machines that work with pods or capsules. Or, for the more traditionalist consumers, through the classic and timeless Moka.
According to our data, relating to the orders of Italian coffee we receive from customers all over the world, the best Italian coffee is… get ready to find out what it is, and what are the 5 best-selling coffees by Bell Italia abroad.
From Apulia, our region, comes a very special coffee: Quarta. We have proposed it to several customers, European and beyond, by sending them free samples, and it has been greatly appreciated. This is thanks to superior quality associated with an affordable price, which guarantees the right margin for retailers, and for the consumers, the opportunity to enjoy an excellent Italian coffee without penalizing their wallet.
Quarta ground coffee, unlike other brands, is not vacuum-packed. It has a shorter shelf life, of course, but the fragrance and aromas are fresh and intense. The taste? Surprising. Ranging from the Barocco variant, made of 100% Arabica quality, to Avio, Stuoia or the more classic Rossa, it satisfies everyone’s needs and appeases even the most demanding palates. Quarta coffee is also available in pods (espresso or decaffeinated), compatible with all ESE pod machines.
