Selecting Your Favorite Allegro Coffees & Espressos
These unblended, single-farm selections are the result of our search for the one coffee in every
crop year that most completely embodies the flavors of a classic growing region.
Central & South America
Colombian Vintage Select Allegro offers the finest regional Colombians available. Relative to other
Latin American coffees, Colombians are full-bodied and hearty, and offer delicious flavors of
caramel and walnut.
Costa Rican Dota This outstanding regional coffee offers hearty, full body, refreshing acidity and a
delightfully tangy milk chocolate note in its long, sweet finish. Year in and year out a true Central
American grand cru.
Guatemalan Antigua, from selected estates At their best, estate grown coffees from the Antigua
region are the finest coffees in all of Central America. High altitude and rich volcanic soil provided
by the three volcanoes surrounding Antigua, combine with a long, slow growing season, allow the
coffee to develop great flavor concentration. Lively and luscious, the classic Antigua flavor is a
complex interweaving of ripe fruit, bittersweet chocolate and peppery spice. As elegant and
multifaceted as a fine cognac.
East Africa & Arabia, Exotic & Fruity
Kenya Grand Cru While the overall quality of Kenyan coffee is the highest in the world, we select
only those few estate-grown offerings which possess the classic Kenyan profile: black currant
fruitiness, wine-like acidity and plush body. There is no finer coffee grown anywhere on earth.
Indonesia and the Pacific, Smooth & Earthy
Papua New Guinea Papua New Guinea produces some of the world's greatest, yet least known
coffees. Our current selection from the Arona and Sigri farms offers a perfect balance of Indonesian
richness with Central American-style crispness. Perhaps the most perfectly balanced coffee in the
Sumatra Blue Batak This exquisite Sumatran coffee has been triple sorted by hand to ensure the
purest, sweetest flavor possible. Creamy and smooth with tremendous depth of flavor.
Sulawesi While not as well known as Sumatran arabicas, coffees from the nearby island of Sulawesi
are equally prized. This coffee is enormously full-bodied and satisfying, with herbal and earthy
flavors, and a creamy butter-caramel finish.
Allegro's approach to blending stems from an appreciation of great single origin coffees. Our goal is
to preserve and present classic varietal flavors in new combinations, which offer a degree of
complexity and consistency that no single coffee can provide.
Light and Bright Blends
Allegro Blend Bright and bursting with aroma, our namesake blend combines the very best Central
American coffees available. The moderate roast makes Allegro Blend the drip breakfast coffee par
excellence - a showcase for the refined high mountain flavors that are our specialty.
Masai Blend The all-African blend has an intense, apricot-like aroma, brisk, fruity flavors
reminiscent of currants and blackberries, and a long, spicy finish. Exotic yet accessible, Masai Blend
is particularly good for drip and vacuum pot brewing.
Round, Rich and Full-Bodied Blends
Café Blend™ Hearty and full-bodied, with flavors reminiscent of dark chocolate laced with sweet
spice, Cafe Blend is deep but not dark. The deep roast chosen for this blend accentuates its sweet
body, leaving just enough lively acidity to keep it refreshing. Versatile and well-rounded.
Mocha Java In a day and age where most Mocha Java blends contain few of the namesake beans,
our version is a delightful find. Genuine Yemen Mocha is the principal component, providing
incomparable fruity high notes anchored and off-set by the earthy richness of the Indonesian
component. The result is a classically balanced blend that remains the standard by which all others

Allegro blends, ideally suited for after dinner as well as magnificent in an espresso machine.
