The Mini Express & I Caffè d’Italia true Italian espresso capsules

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (January 8, 2013) – Bialetti (, the leading Italian stovetop coffee maker company, announced today the launch of a new electric single-serve espresso capsule system that brews authentic Italian coffee with the press of a button. The system features the Mini Express maker and Bialetti’s exclusive espresso blends called I Caffè d’Italia packed in individual aluminum capsules.

Designed in Italy, the Mini Express machine features a 20 bar (290 psi), high-pressure system that makes the perfect cup of Italian espresso in seconds. Its start-and-stop dispensing makes it simple to brew you espresso exactly how you like it by controlling the volume in every cup. Loading and expelling the capsules is easily done with one convenient single motion.

“Nearly 80 years ago, Bialetti transformed the way Italians enjoy espresso at home with the creation of the Moka,” said Jason Vaske, Sr. Product Manager, Bradshaw International. “With the new single-serve line, Bialetti is once again transforming the way we enjoy Italian coffee at home. However, this time Bialetti has combined today’s technology with their years of expertise to make the perfect shot—everything from the flavor to the temperature to the crema makes it really the only single-serve espresso system that delivers real, authentic Italian espresso.”

Exclusively for use with the Mini Express is Bialetti’s I Caffè d’Italia true Italian espresso capsules, which delivers authentic Italian blends with seven grams per shot, which is an advantage to this superior brew. More than a beverage, coffee is an experience, and Bialetti understands Italians’ love affair with coffee. With different blends for different tastes, everyone can find a flavor that satisfies, including:

  •     “Milano” made from a 100% Arabica blend. The result is a light roast with a smooth, light body featuring a fragrant & fruity flavor.
  •     “Venezia” incorporates raw beans and lightly roasted Arabica blends to create a light-bodied, delicate espresso with vanilla accents.
  •     “Roma” is an aromatic dark roast with a rich, bold taste. The complex flavor offers an elegant note of dried fruit and embodies the true Roman preference for a strong espresso.
  •     “Napoli” is made from African blends dark roasted and finely ground to create a hearty espresso with a strong flavor profile and a sharp cacao finish.
  •     “Deca” is a decaffeinated medium roast made from a perfect balance of Arabica and Robusta blends to produce a velvety, enveloping texture.

Starting with premium beans sourced from around the world, each blend is slow-roasted in the traditional Italian way to bring out its own distinctive flavor profile that reflects each region in Italy’s unique traditions and techniques for enjoying the espresso ritual. After the panel of tasting experts ensures that each batch meets exacting standards, Bialetti grinds, packs and seals each blend in 7-gram aluminum capsules that ensure the ultimate in freshness for up to two years.
