A noticeably full-flavored coffee — with absolutely no bitterness!
Quite simply, this is why Cafe La Semeuse has been delighting knowledgeable American coffee drinkers for two decades — and Swiss coffee lovers for more than a century. In addition to winning awards, Café La Semeuse has been lauded by food journalists and praised by culinary professionals for its noticeably smooth satisfaction. Following a 100 year tradition of excellence, (and based on the same scientific principle by which water boils at a lower temperature at higher altitudes) Café La Semeuse is HIGH ROASTED™ by the Bloch family in the Neuchatel mountains of Switzerland. It is this signature roast that results in its singular taste. Reduced air pressure at the high altitude allows the beans to be heated longer without the risk of burning. No burn means no bitterness! The longer exposure to heat “excites” the bean and allows its more fully realized flavors to blossom.
The coffee"s full-flavor but never-bitter taste has been described as the "nectar of coffee". This explains it …and your first cup will prove it.
We offer an array of several combinations of our four blends. All coffees are in 250g (8.8oz) packages with freshness valves (for whole bean) or vacuum briques (for ground coffee).
