Hausbrandt Trieste 1892 history of excellence and quality dates back more than 120 years and makes the company one of the oldest original Italian coffee roasters. The knowledge and expertise gained in making fine Italian coffee have been passed down from generation to generation with the company today combining age old tradition with innovation and technology to create the perfect cup of espresso.
For more than one hundred years, Hausbrandt has combined tradition and experience with knowledge and technological innovation to create a well-established, authentic “culture of good coffee”. The perfect combinations of single origin beans and the different amounts of Arabica and Robusta varieties create perfect blends that offer full flavour, fragrant aroma and rounded body ‒ the essential elements for an exceptional coffee. The secret of the Hausbrandt Trieste 1892 blends undoubtedly lies in their composition. One example is the Gourmet Columbus blend, whose recipe holds the secret to an exquisite combination of bitter cocoa and liquorice root nuances. Its harmonious, full and sophisticated flavour results from careful selection of the finest quality Colombian Arabica.
The Selection Process
As the quality of the coffee is the primary feature that distinguishes Hausbrandt, the company has adopted a rigorous inspection and quality control system. The company has many mechanisms in place to guarantee the highest level of quality, including bi-chromatic sorting. Over a distance of just 10 cm, every single Arabica bean is analyzed 30 times by photocells that can recognize and remove unripe, tough or fermented beans that could compromise the quality of the final product. This is followed by the washing, polishing, and selecting of the Robusta beans; these steps eliminate foreign flavours, toughness and taste defects that could alter the characteristics of the coffee’s body. Hausbrandt technicians constantly monitor every single step of the selection process so that only the very best coffee beans, in excellent condition, go on to be roasted.
