I recently tried out a couple of coffees from Baggio I had the Italian Espresso Roast and their Gourmet Blend.
I will not be able to give you an exact test result about the coffees as sample sizes were sent of pre-ground coffee. One can hardly ever give a fair assessment on pre-ground but I will try.
First of all, Baggio Coffee is a single estate coffee farm located in Minas Gerais, Brazil that now sells directly in the United States. The coffee comes from a single farm where producing quality gourmet coffee is a priority. (quoted)
You can read the World Trade Center Atlanta where an article on Baggio Coffee is featured.
Coffee Beans from the Estate of JosÃ© Astor Baggio in Minas Gerais are sent to their roasting master in Marietta, GA. ( I used to live near Marrietta). Coffee beans are roasted to perfection delivered to your door in 2 days to ensure freshness.
I drew a good shot from the Espresso Roast. Nice caramel color that gives a weak but solid presence in milk. It’s heavy but has a short finish. I feel that I had been able to grind a 2-day roasted bean myself, I would have been able to give a more accurate view. But it was still good.
As for the Premium Gourmet Roast, it was medium dark taste and color. There is a hint of banana-like fruit in scent but not in taste. I get a smokey flavor that is pleasing but short. A nice finish that is lingering.
Give them a visit and seek your own opinion. I have no doubt that they are well on their way to making a good name for themselves here in the U.S.
