In Piazza della Scala in Milan and extending into Via Manzoni, Voce Aimo e Nadia, a café-restaurant where the event “La Voce del Caffè” was held, which involved the teams of Torrefazione Dubbini and Voce Aimo e Nadia with Gallerie d’Italia, a cultural and artistic reference point inside the historical buildings housing the Gallerie d’Italia Museum.
The goal of this event was to tell the story of coffee as a litmus test of a way of making coffee, in the context of a synergic collaboration between coffee of excellence, food culture and art, to explain the evolution of this product from a fleeting occasion to a ritual one, which for the event was made with Cold Brew. “A unique moment,” says Giannandrea Dubbini, president of Diemme Torrefazione, “in which coffee becomes a driving force in the center of Milan. We are proud to be a partner of such an illustrious actor as Vòce Aimo e Nadia: two excellences at the service of quality”.
The stars of the tastings were Caffè Superiore and the specialty coffees El Salvador and Ethiopia Guji, narrated by Davide Cavaglieri, coffee trainer. Together with the croissant signed by Domenico Peragine, pastry chef at Aimo e Nadia, we tasted the 85% Arabica blend from Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil and Ethiopia in espresso extraction, and 15% Robusta originating from India, a coffee with low acidity and medium sweetness with aromatic notes of flowers, fruits, spices and cocoa, with a fondant finish.
Another key moment is the discovery of the Nitro Tropical Cold Brew with El Salvador 100% Arabica Speciality Bourbon variety, an aromatic coffee reminiscent of winey and acidic sensations such as tropical fruit, with an anaerobic-natural processing that gives you sweet flavors of black cherry, fondant and a port wine finish. Cold Brew, Tonica and tropical fruits served together created an unusual drink. The event then closed with a light lunch designed and created by Negrini and Pisani, accompanied by Ethiopia espresso.
