How do you get a rich and intense coffee without simply dark roasting a robusta? Fortissio Lungo set full-sail into figuring that out. Balance out a thick, low-acidity Indian monsooned Malabar with a couple of high-grown Colombian arabicas and you’re well on your way.
As in the age of sailing ships, West Indian Malabar Arabica beans are exposed to monsoon winds after harvest to reveal a distinguished aromatic profile, rich with cereal notes. We blend these with Latin American Arabica beans to create a Lungo with a truly intense character.
