Holidays are the perfect opportunity to allow the right time for yourself. Relax, listen to music, see some movies and rediscover the pleasure of reading, perhaps sipping a good cup of coffee.
But what coffee to drink while reading a classic of Italian literature or an overseas novel? We had fun combining various types of blends and single origins with the classics of literature.
The perfect Espresso and the classics of Italian literature

A strong blend, with a typically Sicilian flavor, combined with the novel by De Roberto which tells the story of the noble Sicilian family of the Uzeda on the background of the unification of Italy.

Coffee Lab Blend # 87 - “Pinocchio. Story of a puppet ” by Carlo Collodi
Did you know that the first edition of Collodi's novel contains a dark nature, with a different ending from the one we all know? To this gem of literature we combine the latest from the Coffee Lab blends: # 87, with notes of honey and a spicy finish, just like that of the novel.
