Caffe Latella is roasted in Torrenova, Sicily. My guess is that it is NOT shipped the day it is roasted. Most high-end roasters here in the USA (& Canada) ship to the customer within a day of roasting. Hence, shipping time becomes de-gas time. We provide our customers with fresh roasted beans which they freshly grind for each "pull".

Where in Italy are you? Yours is one of my favorite countries to visit and MUST be a great place to live.

OOOOOOPS! You are the roaster. Sorry, I just looked at your name.

I feel like a slightly darker roast might actually work better. a medium roast or medium dark (every roaster has there own idea of what this is.) Lighter roast tends to generally be brighter, more sour, and harder to dial in, in my experience. I also have to disagree about letting it rest for 10 days. My favorite shots are usually days 3-8. Again, just my experience.

Hi, yes, you tell me right Caffè Latella is in Torrenova , Sicily. In a magnificent scenario of landscapes, history and art. ( Take a look to S. Marco d'Alunzio near Torrenova if you like my country ).
I'm part of the board of Espresso Siciliano Srl with his label " Caffè Latella".
Concerning delivery, we can send it in the same day of roast ,delivery require at least 2 -3 working days.
If you will come in Italy take a look to our roaster I will be happy.
I will suggest you some unknow beautifull place to visit here in Sicily

Roasted on the lighter side, Kuma Coffee's Red Bear espresso blend is great.

Next stop Sicily!
