Ethiopia is the country of origin of the coffee; the only country in the world where coffee plants grow in the wild.
In the local language, the word for coffee is “bunn” or “buna”. The origin of coffee is Kaffa a province on the southwestern side of Ethiopia and coffee was sometimes referred to as “Kaffa bunn,” or coffee from Kaffa. For this reason, some believe that the term “coffee bean” is an anglicization of “Kaffa bunn”.
Our coffee comes from one of the largest forests of Ethiopia, The Harenna Forest, located in the magnifi cent Mountains of the Bale National Park, 350 km south of the capital Addis Abeba. Here, in the shade of tall trees, at an altitude of circa 1800 meters, arabica coffee grows spontaneously. For thousands of years, each family goes to the forest to harvest the berries, which are then dried in the sun on suspended nets and subsequently roasted and crushed in mortars. Coffee is offered to guests following an ancient ceremony, a solemn rite full of symbolism about respect and hospitality. The ripened coffee berries are harvested by hand, choosing the most red ones: a job that is shared with the local fauna, both accomplice and antagonist, respecting the relationship between nature and man. The Presidium of the wild forest coffee of Harenna consist of 60 families and it promotes the shortening of the production chain, the protection of quality and of the territory and it guarantees dignity and a correct recognition of the people involved.

Apparently Frittelle were already known in Ancient Rome as “frictilia”.

Is the quality of your sponge cake always inconsistent? Shapes and flavours change depending on ingredients, raw material, recipe, weather, etc, etc ?
Sponge cake is one of the oldest known sweet goods. It belongs to the category of “foam cakes” and is very popular around the world, probably because of the short list of ingredients.
Widely used in pastry shops, it is the perfect base for preparing delicious cakes to be filled or topped with any type of cream, such as custard cream, mascarpone cheese, pistachio or hazelnut spread and much more.
A basic sponge cake is composed of only four essential ingredients:
Eggs (whole or yolks)
The earliest recorded mention of sponge cakes was from a Renaissance age Italian baked product. Italian cooks baked “biscuits,” which spread through Italy, England and France. However, it was not until 1615 when the first sponge cake recipe was recorded by the English poet and author Gervase Markham. Still, the cake was much more like a cookie—thin and crispy.
Sponge cakes became well-recognized when bakers started using beaten eggs as a leavening agent in the mid 18th century. Often the batter was poured into elaborate molds, but also into two tin hoops—the precursor to modern cake pans.
To achieve its characteristic light texture, sponge cake needs whipped eggs. It relies on the leavening action of air whipped into and trapped by egg protein. The increase in volume is achieved by trapped air and water vapor that expand during baking.
Baking powder and/or baking soda are sometimes added to sponge cake formulations to provide additional rise through the production of CO2. Such cakes typically have a high volume and feature a light, fluffy texture.
Cocoa sponge cake is one of the variants of the traditional sponge cake. It’s made by adding in the mixture dark cocoa powder.
Ideal for restaurant, bars, hotels, our frozen round and rectangular sponge cakes both traditional and cocoa are Perfectly balanced in flavour and with the right vanilla/lemonish or chocolate aromas.
STORAGE AND SERVING DIRECTIONS Take the Sponge Cake out of the freezer and put it in the refrigerator between 0 and 4°C for 8-10 hours to thaw. Must be eaten within 8 days. To keep the product soft longer, store it in its bag. Once thawed, the Sponge Cake must not be frozen again.
