“I appreciate that the Grifo Blend is a real classic espresso.  I love espresso with a chocolate, nutty, and earthy profile.” said Chris Deferio, Coffee Fest Head Judge. “With latte art, it helps when the espresso has a certain velvety texture and a nice contrasting color.  Ultimately, this is why, when deciding which espresso to use for LAWCO, I selected the Grifo Blend.  It plays well with the flow of milk and provides that timeless balance in the cup that makes a latte or cappuccino complete.”
