Passion from Palermo
Alfredo Espresso Cremazzurro is like the capital of Sicily itself – lively, intense, rustic. It’s the exact opposite of the harmonious, elegant espressi of the north. Cremazzurro is an espresso with an edge.
Unlike our other varieties, Cremazzurro is made with 100% Vietnamese Robusta beans. They are what give it its special full body and spicy, almost tobacco-like flavour, with a sweetness that reminds you of semisweet chocolate. But most of all, Cremazzurro stands out with its firm, fine-pored crema you can almost rest an espresso spoon on. Naturally, it is this crema that gives this unique espresso its name.
Cremazzurro is the perfect espresso for people who feel at home in the south of Italy, and who appreciate Sicily and Calabria for the same character that this espresso has – maybe a bit rugged, but very warm.
Cremazzuro is Sicilian through and through. A dark espresso with a thick, fine-pored crema, just like you’ll find in a bar in the bustling old part of Palermo. The unusually slowly and carefully roasted Robusta beans make Cremazzurro an espresso of extraordinary character.

The greatest strength of Cremazzurro is its remarkable body. Its full mouthfeel, high content of spicy bitter substances and pleasant sweetness make this espresso a very special flavour experience, despite its low acidity. Here you can learn more about the flavour components of Alfredo Espresso.

What many people don’t know is that ice cream was invented in Palermo. So Sicily is worth a visit just for its gelato alone. But an absolute must – yet almost unknown outside Italy – is granita, a fruity treat with a consistency reminiscent of sorbet.
In Palermo you can get it in many bars and at street stands, and a nice, strong Sicilian espresso like our Cremazzurro always goes great with it.
