Coffee and music, aromatic and music notes come together in six different coffee types. These have to be tasted slowly, in order appreciate the sensory involvement.

Culture is also Respect, central idea of the cooking shows scheduled during those three days dedicated to the tastingsection. On Saturday 26th, at 3:30 pmat the Hotel Diodoro, Roberto Nicotra will present the single-origin Pacamara. It is a refined Arabica quality being part of the Moak line of single origins, that is special coffees, which are carefully selected by small producers and roasted with traditional methods.

With the help of chemex – a filter extraction method – participants will be shown how to prepare a coffee featuring rich aromas and citrus notes, to be combined (as an alternative to classic espresso) with cannoli proposed by Antonio Cicero “Il Consiglio di Sicilia”. A slow extraction that invites participants to explore what is hidden behind a coffee bean, besides its aroma: respect for raw materials, for those who cultivate them and for those who then select and turn them into a drink.

Furthermore, the Taormina Gourmet Learning – a workshop curated by Eugenio Signorini (editor of the guidebooks “Birre d’Italia” of the publishing house Slow Food Editore ) – will be the occasion for Moak, in cooperation with the Sicilian brewery Tarì, to introduce Tarì Moak,a coffee-flavoured craft beer made with cold-extracted Ethiopian coffee beans.
