How you roast a coffee plays a big part in whether or not you hit that ideal harmony of coffee with milk. To develop that sweet and inviting taste of Chiaro, we split roast the blend with both splits roasting at a relatively low temperature and for a moderate amount of time – just long enough to develop the coffees’ inherent sweetness.
BARISTA CREATIONS Chiaro has hardly a hint of roastiness, and almost no bitterness or acidity you can perceive. It’s all creamy caramel and sweet biscuit notes when you add milk. The baristas in Brooklyn inspired us in the way their light roast values the natural sweetness of coffee and lends a decadent smoothness to the cup when you add milk. We love it as a Cappuccino, but go ahead and get creative – Chiaro is great as Latte Macchiato too – with cow milk or your favorite plant-based alternative: oat milk, coconut milk or soya milk.
