Orzo♥Coffee: from Italy with love
'Caffè d'orzo' (barley coffee) has a long established tradition in Italy but it is not very well-known in UK. It started in ancient times and became popular during the Fascism era, when Italy was dealing with embargo sanctions and had very limited access to real coffee. On the other hand, barley was a common cereal in Italy, used in many traditional dishes as well as in farming. Therefore, orzo coffee naturally became a substitute of the expensive and less available coffee. With the economic boom following the war-time period, barley coffee remained used but was less popular than the world-wide famous Italian coffee.
However, in recent years, orzo has become a fashionable and very appreciated drink, loved and consumed by Italians, both at home and in the bars and coffee shops. There are various reason for this ...

This is what the judges have commented on our Orzo★Coffee:
Very pleasant robust and dark, coffee-like appearance. Very well rounded barley flavour, not too bitter with a nice finish - good with milk. Great for people who like a coffee-style drink with no caffeine
Another year, another Great Taste Award! This time we submitted our new Nespresso compatible pods and this is what the judges had to say about Orzo★Coffee: We ran this longer for a big, frothy cream. The cereal on the nose was pleasant. There is little to compare these flavours to but we are getting good biscuit notes with some darker flavours, probably from the caramelisation of the sugars in the barley. With sugar, we got toasted muesli which works a treat and excelled all of our expectations. Most surprising!
