This blend is named after the Meloria shallows which lie two and a half miles off Livorno and now form part of a marine park. Created for people who prefer strong flavours, the dominant component in this blend is arabica (75%), with a high percentage of dry processed beans, combined with a wet processed Indian robusta, also top quality, which gives Meloria some of its special characteristics.

MELORIA Blend Coffee Bean



Every coffee is unique, like the land on which it grows. Mild and full-bodied from Lagoa do Morro in Brazil; smooth and round from San Luis in Salvador; elegant and fragrant from Sidamo in Ethiopia; acidic and aromatic from Guatemala. What drives Arcaffe to travel is their love for knowledge. It is their desire to learn to recognise the finest varieties, to judge when the coffee cherries are perfectly ripe and to see with their own eyes how much care is taken over the wet and dry processes.
That is why they travel the length and breadth of the state of Bahia in Brazil to visit the Chapada Diamantina and Cerrado Bahiano estates, why they climb the slopes of the Cuchumatanes mountains in Guatemala to reach the Mayan pueblos of Todos Santos, and why they ride on ramshackle minibuses down dusty roads in Karnataka in south-western India.
It is not a desire for adventure, but an inner need.
The desire to find out everything there is to know about coffee, and to transform this knowledge into absolute quality


Finding the finest coffee is not the end of Arcaffe’s journey, but a new starting point. Because transforming the green coffee into an excellent blend requires expertise, technology and production processes at the very highest level. Arcaffe’s new production plant, which entered service in 2012, features an innovative clean air roasting process that avoids any contact between the combustion gases and the coffee beans.
The components in all their blends are roasted separately and exclusively air-cooled. Before packaging, all their products are passed through a screen to remove any broken beans. After packaging, their coffee remains in the warehouse (which complies with the latest European sanitary and safety regulations) only for the time needed to organise shipment and so ensure maximum freshness when it reaches their customers.
In addition, a photovoltaic power generation plant ensures that production is entirely self-sufficient and has the least possible impact on the environment.


Behind the leading edge technology lies human experience, always. In the delicate roasting phase, the Master Roaster carefully oversees the transformation of the beans from green and solid to brown and crumbly. It takes great experience to recognise the right moment; roasting the beans for even a few seconds too long can destroy the volatile aromas in the coffee and turn it into a poorer product.
In the blending stage, cuppers bring their skill to bear as they combine coffees from various provenances in an ancient alchemy. The Master Blender brings together flavours and aromas like the instruments in an orchestra, repeatedly tasting the individual components to create a blend that is the perfect expression of the original idea from which it springs. Experience in the art of cupping goes well beyond tasting skills. It needs the right tools and knowledge, and not merely passion.
Which is why this fundamental stage in the preparation process is overseen by experts who have the rare gift of being able to understand the complexities of different coffees, to recognise their physical features and to appreciate their organoleptic characteristics as something absolutely unique. And it is because of Enrico Meschini’s international reputation as an expert in the art of cupping, that he holds the prestigious role of coffee consultant for the Slow Food association and is a member of the international Cup of Excellence panel.
Because coffees can be clean, constant, spicy, malty, round, full-bodied or smooth, they can have the fragrance of flowers, honey, chocolate or vanilla, they can be creamy and velvety, honey or hazelnut flavoured… and it is a veritable art form to combine and enhance these individual peculiarities


Arcaffe has the immense privilege of doing a job they have been passionate about for five generations.
It is a passion that drives them to search firsthand for the world’s finest coffees, in their places of origin, travelling both to great estates and the small plots cultivated by so many small local producers, striving to find the perfect coffee and share it with the whole world.


All Arcaffe coffee have been destoned and packed in the most advanced sealing equipment to ensure minimal deterioration in the first six months.
A lot of attention is paid to preserve the quality of the coffee. Users will be able to store their unopened bag of coffee for a longer period.
