Happy Holidays Mentor Microlab!

Dear Mentors, this box is called Mersì, meaning thank you in Piedmontese.

It was designed just for you, to give you a thought from Turin, for a break or a special start to the day . The products we have chosen are pure hazelnut cream, the result of the skilful work of the RoeroVero family-run farm in the Langhe, and Flora Brasil coffee beans from the Ialty micro roastery in Barolo , which chooses the best with care and attention coffee beans, supporting sustainable agriculture practices and maximum production quality . On this page you will find information on the products and HERE you can download advice on use, conservation and anti-waste recipes . For any question or information, you can contact me by email at The term "Specialty Coffee" refers to exclusively high quality Arabica green coffee beans, which after roasting, and during extraction, reveal particular and complex aromas and flavours. The definition criteria for Specialty Arabica are those of the Specialty Coffee Association . A specialty coffee is such if it has the visual requirements established by the green and roasted coffee protocol and which, after tasting it with the cupping protocol, obtains a specific score of at least 80 , given on a scale from zero to 100. agricultural practices adopted, botanical varieties, post-harvest processes make it possible to create specific cup profiles. Beyond the technicalities that provide the quality standards to be respected, specialty coffee is much more . The specialty coffee supply chain is long and made up of many different players, each of which plays a fundamental part. If I take a very high quality coffee and then roast it or extract it badly, it is no longer so special. In fact, the final experience in the cup does not depend on a single actor in the production cycle , but goes from the farmer, to those who deal with raw processing and shipping, to the roaster, up to the barista who serves us the coffee.

How to store coffee?

Coffee should be stored away from sources of humidity, heat and light . Once the package has been opened, we advise you to keep it tightly closed in the fridge. You can decide to grind it yourself at the moment before preparing the coffee or have the beans ground by your trusted shop. However, consider that the organoleptic characteristics of coffee deteriorate quickly if exposed to the air, so it is important to keep the coffee in a closed container, if possible in the fridge.

Some curiosities about coffee that you may not have known

  • Why is it called that?: Around the year 1000 some Arab traders brought grains from their travels in Africa from which they boiled a drink called qahwa (exciting), translated into Turkish kahve . Some argue that the name derives from Caffa, a region of Ethiopia where it grows spontaneously.
  • Who drinks the most? The primacy of coffee consumption belongs to the Finns with 12 kg per year each.
  • The composer Bach loved coffee so much that he dedicated a cantata to it – Kaffeekantate – performed in Leipzig in 1732.
  • The devil's drink: It was Pope Clement VIII who rehabilitated coffee by pronouncing the fateful phrase " This drink of Satan is so good that it would be a shame to let only infidels drink it ".

Ialty is a quality roasting company born in Barolo in 2019 after twenty years of experience in coffee extractions.

Ialty is a 100% Italian micro-roastery, a new point of reference in the world of specialty coffees. In addition to proposing a line of coffees with a rich organoleptic profile and free from primary defects in the production chain, Ialty wants to be a center of cultural contamination that unites the world of art, sport and good food. Why Barolo? Because the first roastery had to be born in the heart of the Langhe, a land of excellence, a destination for professional travel or food and wine tourism. In this unique context, which we invite you to discover, Ialty wants to be an educational and experiential point of reference on the world of quality coffee.

How to preserve pure hazelnut cream?

Given that it usually lasts very little because it is too good, we advise you to keep it in the fridge and leave it at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before using it. At room temperature, in fact, it gives its best in terms of aroma, flavor and consistency.
