A very poor quality cappuccino.
Beans poor quality, Italian and over roasted.
Not ground fresh for each cup.
Vegan Italian coffee shop, and thus no milk.
Choice of various artificial milks — almond, coconut, spelt, soya …
Soya like palm oil, bad for the environment, destruction of rain forests, loss of habitat, genetically modified crops.
Spelt bread not good, recommended spelt milk.
Never use sugar in a cappuccino, it ruins it.
Spelt milk very sweet. As though several spoonfuls of sugar dumped in the coffee
As a result a very disgusting cappuccino.
If nothing else, disguised that beans over roasted.
The beans, so over roasted, burnt. The aroma was not good, all essential oils destroyed
Normally, beans this burnt would produced a very disgusting bitter coffee. The only reason not, masked by the spelt milk. But equally disgusting coffee and left a queezy feeling in the stomach.
I could see no roast date. But if shipped from Italy, unlikely to be within optimum period from roast date. But, becomes a moot point when beans this burnt. A skilled barista would be hard pushed to get a decent cup of coffee out of these beans.
The myth that Italy is synonomous with quality coffee, is just that, a myth.
Italy invented the espresso machine, though the French may wish to dispute this.
It was the French who first applied steam to drive water under pressure through coffee.
In 1818, Mr Laurens of Paris used a percolator system to create coffee. Further refinements by Louis Bernard Rabaut in 1822.
It was not until the early 1900s Italians came on the scene.
In 1901, Luigi Bezzera created a primitive espresso machine.
It was not until post-WWII we had the forerunner of the modern espresso machine.
It was Italian Fascists who coined the term barista, to differentiate from the American barman.
Ambience in Malaika pleasant, apart from the unpleasant loud music.
Once again we see, if you want to open a quality coffee shop, need quality beans, quality machines and a skilled barista.
The nearest in Tenerife for quality coffee is Café del Aguere in La Laguna.
