As you enter Caffe Vergnano 1882, a timeline of their heritage greets you — an illustrious history, which began from 1882. What started out as a single shop, eventually morphed into over 100 coffee shops and a coffee plantation in Kenya.

Priding themselves on brewing real Italian espresso, the coffee company uses a time-consuming slow-roasting method (18-22 minute cycles), so that the flavours and aromas of the beans are evenly roasted.

A further testimony of this dedication; each origin’s beans are roasted separately to accentuate their full quality.

If you’re looking to order just one drink, make it the 1882 Espresso.

True Italian coffee

If you’re looking to order just one drink, make it the 1882 Espresso ($3.50). Full-flavoured and roasty, with a pleasant roundness once it hits your tongue, this espresso is said to be every coffee purists’ dream.

Those with a penchant for cocoa ought to try the Bicerin (from $6), a traditional concoction of espresso and cocoa topped with cream. With its origins from Turin, Italy, this luxurious drink will delight anyone with its smooth richness, although we’d recommend taking it easy on the swirled blob of cream.

If you fancy taking home a taste of Caffe Vergnano, consider their exclusive 1882 Blend. Top quality Arabica beans from Central America are singularly roasted and blended with an Arabic “Sidamo” of Ethiopia. What you get is a brew with complex aroma and slight hints of flora.
