Presenting a rich crimson gold crema and delicate floral notes, Vivace Espresso Dolce features rich notes of chocolate and a palate-pleasing lingering sweet aftertaste. The most complex and smooth flavor possible - that's how the gold cup espresso blend was especially designed its perfect espresso ristretto.
This is an excellent italian style of roast coffee. It is good enough to drink it straight and in fact this was blended for straight espresso drinking. It will require a bit of temperature controlling to bring out the best taste but it is worth it for sure. Also, note that the new size is 12 ounces not one full pound like previously.
Very good roast. It's very smooth and chocolatey as an espresso shot, following other's guidelines of 18-19g @ 203F in a double basket. It performs great in milk drinks with about 8-10oz to balance out the intensity of the espresso itself. I also brewed it using a Clever Coffee Dripper and produced good results, more mellow, but same great flavors as espresso. I didn't taste much of any acidity in either brewing method. If your taste buds tend towards more to bitters, chocolate, and caramel flavors, this roast is exceptional.
Just simply perfect every roast !!!! Wonderfully packaged to protect the roast and aroma. Beautiful Crema and absolutely enjoyable taste. Every note complimented the other's ... I quickly found myself running out and needing to restock !!!
The Vivace Espresso Dolce Coffee will easily available everywhere in the world. It taste superb and looks tempting. It freshen you with the great taste of coco and caffeine. It is hot and delicious which makes your day fresh.
I love this coffee it is my favorite. It was shipped and arrive in 4 days. you guys are great! your prices are lots better than other
coffee on line latta companies. The coffee is excellent! Lots of creama and no bitter taste with a hint of chocolate.
I have a gaggia unica that is an automatic and it makes the perfect expresso and it taste great with milk to for a latta.
Had this coffee in 2008 and had to do some digging to remember it. Glad it has a unique name so I was able to find it.
Would highly recommend 5 stars!
I love Vivace...still holds a special place in my heart after I have tried over 15 different other espresso blends and single origins. The taste is very distinct but not overpowering. It does a great job holding up to milk as well! I can wait to try this in my new ZPM Espresso machine coming in a few weeks!!
This was my first order from roaste, and it has been excellent, but is that because it is truly the best roaste has to offer or are there tasty surprises yet to come? I don't know. Can I remove stars later? I don't know. But still, the cups I've pulled form these beans have been excellent. No complaints here. My wife has been loving it too.
Dark chocolate and a little bit of a spicy aftertaste that lingers. I dosed 18 grams into my Gaggia Classic and did my best to go for a hotter extraction. Dolce seemed to be more picky than other blends but it was great when I got it right. Apparently this blend is designed to stand alone but I really enjoyed it in milk drinks as well. I love the packaging too- the two resealable 8 oz. bags with one way valves are great.
After spending about 2 weeks with Dolce, it seems like Dolce's a very low toned "dark chocolate" profile. There's almost no/very little hint of fruitiness, with an evident presence of Sumatra earthiness, even pulled at ristretto range, after many days of rests. However, the body with the crema and sweetness are just fantastic. The color of the crema was rusty red which is just beautiful. The only reason it didn't get a 5 cup from me was because of the earthiness that I dislike in my espresso shots. I have no problem accepting that in brewed coffee though, or little hint of earthiness in shot. But because the intensity of the earthiness made me felt like I am tasting Sumatras. It would be greater if the earthiness was less pronounced.
It does a good job in milk drink though.
Perhaps one of the best blends to drink in a cappuccino. This espresso is sweet, and I mean that very literally. If you pull this shot correctly, you should be tasting coffee, chocolate, and caramel. That said, I wish it were a bit more complicated on the palette. For what it is, though, it may just be the best.
I have visited Vivace in Seattle and I liked, well pretty much everything. I bought two pounds from there and when I came home I got used to the real deal, so nothing satisfied me. Great crema, balanced flavor. The only espresso I could drink without milk. Cheers everybody
I have never made a better espresso than with these beans. Taste is bold with a definitive chocolaty finish. Crema is nice and thick, but not too foamy. I have tried it as a straight shot, in a latte, an americano and a cappuccino. Absolutely going to buy this again.
I did not enjoy these beans as much as I had hoped, but it could take some more dialing in before I get the best experience. The smell of the whole beans is not great, and neither is the extracted espresso. The taste improved remarkably about 7 days after roast and is still pretty solid now at 13 days past roast. I can appreciate that!
OK, a little pricey by coffee standards, but I always have a new bean first as an espresso to see the taste quality on its own. The Vivace is beautiful, nice crema, very tasty. Some darker chocolate taste, with a bit of almond, cinnamon and spice. Great for cappucinos and lattes, and I will definitely buy this one again!
Recently bought a new Gaggia academia machine and three of the highest rated coffees from this site. This is my favorite of the three. Very smooth, lots of complex flavor notes, like the chocolatey after taste. Definitely a winner. Works great with my new super auto espresso machine.
This was one of the first third wave blends I tried on my equipment (which at the time was a Nuova SImonelli Oscar and a La Pavoni Jolly). The result was a sweet shot that is reminiscent of a lot of other blends that attempt to mimic Northern Italian espresso. I enjoyed it as a cappuccino, but any nuance to this blend was lost in a latte. It was defined by its dark chocolate accents.
I started using a cold brew method to make my own coffee since I only drink it iced. I had been experimenting with a number of roasts. I bought this because I had a gift certificate, and it didn't disappoint. I thought it was rich, well-balanced, and just perfect for what I needed. My purchase came in individual, sealed bags (I think I ended up with 6 total). I kept one out at a time and place the remaining bags in a freezer zip-loc bag and placed THAT inside a paper bag, and stored it all in the freezer until needed. Just opened the last bag last night, and the aroma and taste were still right there. Great coffee.
Very nice coffee here - thick crema from day 5 (and counting) with my Gaggia. I notice I had to move my grinder two notches coarser to get the flow I like since I have been loading light roast S.O.'s lately. The taste is smooth with excellent body and a dark chocolate and nut taste going on. Easy to work with, seems to get better every day so I am not sure when it peaks - I am eleven days post roast as I type this. I do like the split bags too - one is in the freezer so I can enjoy this taste again in a couple weeks!
