    Click on the www button on my signature for the website. We are a 100% indonesian coffee company- so I only deal in Indonesian Arabicas- mostly sourced from small holders we work with exclusively. As for the blend...I could tell you, but as they say, I would have to shoot you.

    Maybe Willis will be so kind as to tell us what's in his Italian Blend?

    He may....but as the Mafia say... "3 can keep a secret if 2 of them are dead"... an apt Sicilian saying that seems appropriate to put along side the "Italian Blend"

    Is it the level of roast or is it the recipe used for the blend that makes it "Italian"?

    (I can't believe I'm still asking this, after all these months. You guys are so secretive.)

    That, my friend, is a very good question. After spending a hot and sultry summer picking the finest, plump and ripe cherries growing on the slopes of the Appenine and Dolomite Mountain ranges, and a nail biting July avoiding scalding steam and hand picking the rare Arabica Cicero and Arabica Pompei from Mt Etna and Vesuvius, I would like to think the Italian blend is 100% Italian grown coffee. I also note the Luna blend with interest. The coffee planted by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon is pretty close to maturity now.

    In all seriousness I am not sure on this one. You see there is a North Italian, as well as regional Italian styles of roasting (primarily related to darkness of roast). However these in Italy are quite different from what you see overseas. North Italian in the US and Asia is quite dark, while roasters I saw actually roasting in the north of Italy were roasting appreciably lighter. Down in somewhere like Palermo, where I have a good friend whos family has been roasting for generations, very dark roasts are the norm.

    So.... when I hear "Italian Blend" perhaps it relates to a particular blending that is suited to an Italian pallete. But (again) with all the regional taste differences (Robusta south of Napples, Arabica north of Bologna...then again I am not sure)

    Maybe in this case the coffee is a blend chosen by a particular Italian who works for the roaster. So perhaps "Italian" is being used as a definative .... "The Italian(s) blend"?

    Who got me started on this?????

    The italian coffee blend is a mix of fine 100% Arabica coffee. It realy does come down to the roasting but also you must have the perfect bean that give the italian blend it srtong full flavour coffee. We will see..... maybe i will give you our blend for Italian blend.

    What do you guys thinkof my website? what would you change?

    If you want me to be a little picky, I would probably change "Expresso" to "Espresso" on the headings on your beans page > http://www.willisjococoffee.com.au/cata ... tcats=1025 . There are a few speilling erors (Meduim=Medium) that you could look at as well (although I am not one to correct on that count for sure). "Very great tasting coffee" could be substituted with "a great tasting coffee" etc. But all in all no problem
