Fazenda Riacho Doce (meaning sweet water stream) on the Vitoria da Conquista plateau, comes from a single estate in the town of Barra do Choca, in the Brazilian state of Bahia. Ripe cherry was harvested during the day and taken to the washing station on the farm at the end of the afternoon where it was de-pulped and left to rest in fermentation tanks for 12 to 15 hours. (In Brazil, washed coffees that undergo this fermentation step are referred to as fully washed.) After fermentation, the beans were washed and sent to slowly dry in greenhouses.
Cupping Notes-Almond, Apple, Nougat
Sogno is proud to serve only the finest Arabica beans. Our roast process involves small, handcrafted batches of single-origin beans. Why single origin and not blends? Our Master Roaster believes that each region of the world that produces the best coffee crop should be tasted individually to appreciate the vast flavors and tasting experiences. Our coffee is roasted fresh every day and packaged on our premise. The attention we give to the quality of our coffee bean selections as well as the roast process is simply unrivaled. The taste and the freshness of our coffee brands are in a league of their own. We pick up our raw coffee beans at the port and roast them in our custom-built roaster. Hence our business slogan…”From country to cup. Enjoy!”
Napoletano & Vitale Family
The idea was born on a honeymoon: John Vitale and Alissa Napoletano-Vitale's 2012 honeymoon in Paris and Tuscany proved to be quite productive. Falling for the crepes in Paris and the handmade pasta and fresh-roasted coffee in Italy, the Cresskill pair decided they wanted to open a restaurant in North Jersey, featuring European dishes. They began by launching Sogno Coffeehouse with Alissa’ parents (Joe & Cheryl Napoletano) in November 2012, which quickly became a popular Westwood neighborhood spot for its sweet and savory crepes and in-house roasted coffee. Then in 2013, they expanded next door to open Caffe Anello, a 20-seat Tuscan-inspired eatery with an open kitchen and daily fresh-made pastas. "Since I was 8 or 9, I've been in the kitchen with my parents and grandparents," said John, chef/owner. "Cooking is a hobby that's become a profession." Alissa, a native of Cresskill, does marketing and social media for the restaurants.
We are now located inside Caffé Anello
