Discover the world of Alfredo Espresso
Welcome to the delicious world of Alfredo Espresso – espressi that with every sip recall the dolce vita of a sunny afternoon in an Italian piazza. Although Alfredo Espresso is roasted in Germany, it’s Italian to the core. Born in the lively university town of Bologna, today it can be found in upscale F&B outlets throughout Europe, delighting coffee connoisseurs with unique espresso moments and Italian enjoyment of life.
A look at the Alfredo Espresso product range reveals that these are not simply seven different delicious espressi, but an authentic 7-star taste tour of the homeland of espresso. The seven stars stand for seven exciting varieties, each representing a different city, embodying its soul, its character, and the way it likes its espresso – powerful and intense down south in Palermo, light and easy in the capital city of Rome, or mildly spicy and elegant in stylish Milan.
Dosing: simple. Preparation: easy. Taste: wonderful! Italian espresso indulgence is now available in capsule form. You can enjoy a Caffè Lungo, Decaffeinato or Super Bar by Alfredo Espresso at the simple press of a button. The new Alfredo Espresso capsule line exclusive for gastronomy comprises these three popular espresso roasts, the Doreen capsule machine which was specially developed for us, and an exclusive capsule box with an attractive presenter insert for three or six capsules.
