If you visit a café or restaurant in Spain and order coffee, it is very likely you’ll be served torrefacto coffee – a thicker, more flavorful brew than what is usually served here in the United States. Despite being the coffee of choice for many Spaniards, torrefacto coffee is quite hard to find as it is rarely imported into the United States. If you’ve been attempting to recreate the delicious café con leche you enjoyed in Spain, your search is over.
To produce torrefacto coffee, a portion of the whole coffee beans are coated with a fine mist of sugar prior to roasting. These sugar coated beans are blended with natural roast beans and the proportion of torrefacto beans in the mix determines the intensity of the coffee. This ground blend is 50% torrefacto and yields a full-bodied, robust cup of coffee with none of the bitterness you expect in a regular cup of coffee.
Catunambú believes that great coffee is born from a combination of the very best coffee beans available and careful roasting. Catunambú blends 10 different varieties of beans from the very best coffee regions in Latin America and Africa to achieve their unique flavor and aroma. By using the best kinds of coffee in the world, Catunambú’s coffee blend is unsurpassed.
Founded by Juan Ferrer over a hundred years ago, Catunambú is the coffee of Andalusia. Quality is the top priority for this 100% Andalusian company based in Sevilla. For decades Spaniards have enjoyed Catunambú coffee at their cafés throughout Sevilla and now you can enjoy this taste of Andalusia in your own home!
This coffee is vacuum packaged with a patented “Goglio Valve” to guarantee that it reaches the customer at the peak of aroma and flavor. Ground coffee is vacuum packed immediately after roasting to preserve its freshness.

"Love this coffee - always add two bags to every order although my last batch was not ground as finely as all previous orders - perhaps there were some complaints of too fine a grind but for me I now have to use more to get the same depth and flavor"

"Yum! Good straight coffee flavor. The Torrefacto idea was new to me, but this coffee was pleasantly surprising. Seems that the sugar coating brings out the coffee beans' flavor. "
Victoria - Campbell, CA February 2013
"This is not a dark roast coffee at all. Nothing authentic about it. It is a light, sweet coffee, but nothing like a Spanish Dark Roast. IF you are just looking for something for Cafe Con Leche, give it a shot, otherwise, this is a swing and a miss."

"We were a family of 9 on a Meditterean Cruise departing from Barcelona. All of us loved the coffee in Spain. After returning to the USA, I was craving that great coffee I had in Spain. I just ordered 4 bags from La Tienda and found it to be just as delicous as the coffee I had in Barcelona."

"Exactly as I remembered Spanish coffee..."

"Good coffee. I have been missing that torrefacto blend since leaving Spain. Now, I just need the right coffeemaker to bring out the full flavor."

"Most wonderful cafe con leche! Best in a stove top espresso maker. "
ls - August 2010
"The stovetop expresso maker is key, plus the mix of Torrefacto in this brand is exactly as I got when I lived in Spain. It costs a lot more to get it here in the states, but worth it. If LaTienda ever discontinues selling Torrefacto coffee, I will be in trouble, as I have gotten all my friends hooked on it too!"

"Cafe con leche is one of the many reasons I fell in love with Andalucia. When I came back to the states, I vowed to figure out how to make a real cup, and Catunambu is the key. I use a stovetop espresso maker, and the coffee comes out thick, dark, and deliciously complex. Add milk, and you have an authentic cafe con leche. Every time I make some, I take a sip, close my eyes, and pretend I'm sitting at a little cafe on a busy street, enjoying the warm sun and people-watching. Thank you to La Tienda for carrying this brand!"
CW - November 2009
"I especially like this mixed Torrefacto coffee as oposed to the 100 percent Torrefacto due to its more complex flavor. For me this makes a fine morning cup and I use it for a welcome change from the various beans and blends we get from specialty providers such as Gevalia. I find the coffee has good body but I do not find it to be "thick" and I may never have used it "con leche" since I like to drink it "black." On special ocaissions it does merit a dose of Pedro Jiminez. This product is one that I regularly reorder from La Tienda and I recommend it to you with confidence."
