Introducing Aurora Espresso Coffee

Over the last 55 years, our customers have come to expect unparalleled quality and freshness from Aurora products. Today we are happy to introduce an important new addition to the Aurora family that exemplifies these core values: Aurora Espresso Coffee.

Never before has the Canadian consumer been given greater access to an authentic Italian espresso that captures the rich aromatic scent of an italian coffee combined with the freshness provided by a locally roasted bean.

The one-way valve that is built into every bag of Aurora Espresso allows the coffee to be packaged immediately after roasting, reducing its exposure to oxygen and delivering the freshest experience possible. The one-way valve allows the gas that is emitted by the freshly roasted coffee to escape, forcing oxygen out of the bag at the same time. So, when you open a bag of Aurora Espresso Coffee you are guaranteed the freshest espresso possible!

Aurora Coffee WebsiteWe’re very excited to make this exciting new product available to our loyal consumers, who we are positive will enjoy drinking our coffee as much as we enjoy roasting it.

I was hoping you could give me some information in regards to your espresso coffee. I was wondering if your whole bean coffee is the indentical coffee as the espresso casa (origins etc) I really enjoy the espresso casa but I do not want to buy the whole beans unless it is the same coffee. I would really appreciate some information! Best regards,

Hello Dominic,

The whole bean (labeled “Espresso Bar”) is a different blend than the Espresso Casa. The whole bean blend has more of the Robusta bean as a percentage. Otherwise, we use the same types of beans in each.

Here is a list of the different blends:

  • Espresso CASA – blend of Arabica from Brazil and Robusta from Africa (mainly Uganda)
  • Espresso CASA Bold – is the same but roasted darker and a higher percentage of the African.
  • Espresso BAR – blend of Arabica from Brazil and Colombia and Robusta from Africa (mainly Uganda)

The CASA blends are ground specifically for use in stovetop espresso makers; while the BAR blend is better suited for commercial style traditional espresso makers using a portafilter and pump for the pressure.

Your commercial implies you introduced coffee into Canada 65 years ago. How is this? Coffee was in the US as early as 1773.
