An historical and classical Caffe Greco blend with a particular, balance and typical Italian taste. It’s dedicated to the founder of the Café Nicola della Maddalena who is linked to the Levantine origins of this "sooty drink," that the legendary waiters of Caffe Greco served to "Romulus and Remus when they were satiated with milk of the she-wolf. " When Napoleon’s Continental System ,starting in 1806 , blocked British colonial goods including coffee, other Roman restaurateurs tried to maintain a constant price of coffee by mixing the precious dust with flour, chickpeas, soybeans, or chestnuts Caffe Greco never stopped serving pure coffee. The price doubled, and the cups shrank, but the unmistakable aroma of real coffee continued to attract our customers. This is the ideal blend for those who choose to start their day with the right amount of energy.
