The excellent quality of the Caffè Aiello blends is deeply rooted in the careful selection of the raw materials, performed in the best coffee producing countries in the world: Brazil, Central America, Central Africa and India.
In particular, the countries which supply the biggest quantities of coffee are Brazil, Guatemala, Honduras, Colombia, Ethiopia and Peru for Arabica, and Vietnam and India for Robusta.
There are more than 20 million coffee farms in the world and these are often small farmers who may only harvest a few sacks of coffee per year. This aspect makes it complicated and risky for the roaster to procure coffee directly.
Caffè Aiello has always operated through extremely reliable and expert international intermediaries who have an excellent knowledge of the locations where coffee is grown worldwide.
Coffee is a natural product and therefore subject to the differences in climate of the regions in which it is grown. To ensure that the organoleptic profile of its blends is always the same, all the raw beans used to make Caffè Aiello are chosen from year to year based on the characteristics of the land and the climate, which favour the correct development of the coffee plant. Indeed, the plant requires soil that is slightly acidic and full of nutritive substances and a suitable climate, characterised by warmth, shade, rain and humidity.
