    Recommendations for Vittoria Espresso like blends?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have a bit of a soft spot for the taste of Vittoria coffee, but it's difficult to find a fresh batch of beans suitable for an espresso machine. Does anyone know of similar alternatives offered by the sponsors here? Alternatively, where could one find fresh Vittoria beans?

    Something like this? Jumpstart 480g

    My thoughts were what could a typical Italian blend be like if it was fresh and contained specialty beans...

    I'll second Chris's recommendation. Jumpstart is an awesome blend. Grab some. You won't be disappointed

    Thanks for the recommendation. Are these beans roasted upon order, and if not, what's the turnover rate?

    Hi Cyb,

    We roast them every so often and they usually sell out within a week of roast. Currently just two left at day 9 (which I may grab for myself), but this blend does need to rest a minimum 2 weeks before use to be at its best. I'll probably roast another batch on Tuesday and then perhaps not for another month or so. Jumpstart's a slightly fiddly post roast blend so it's a special guest rather than a regular.

    I have been told the DiBella's Nero blend was designed with the flavours you are after, to compete for business.
    Maybe worth a try.
