Espresso di Manfredi  celebrates Sprezzatura  winners announced

Espresso di Manfredi hosted friends, family and long term customers to an  evening at  Manfredi’s Balla to officially unveil two new coffee blends and celebrate Sprezzatura on 26 February 2013.

In an evening of jazz, prosecco and  coffee-inspired cocktails, guests came together to celebrate as Stefano, Wayne Archer and Julie Manfredi-Hughes introduced  two new  espresso blends , Audacia (a bold blend) and Chiaro (delicate) to the  Espresso di Manfredi  family  and unveiled new packaging . The two new blends compliment the original blend, now christened  Classico  in order to takes its rightful place in the new family .

At the heart of Espresso di Manfredi is sprezzatura, a word more commonly used by  Italians to  express a confidence of style . With decades of experience and passion between them, chef Stefano Manfredi and master blender Wayne Archer have sealed the essence of sprezzatura within their new  family of espresso blends.  This unique collaboration originated in 2000 and continues to stay strong 13 years on.

Shoe designer, and socialite ,  Terry Biviano hosted a Q&A with Stefano, Julie and Wayne giving guests an exclusive insight into the development of the new blends.

Guests who attended the launch had an opportunity to win some very exciting prizes by posing in the Espresso di Manfredi FB Photo booth re-creating the hero brand image. All pictures were then posted on the Espresso di Manfredi facebook page and the three pictures that receive the most likes/shares over the next week went in the running to win.

Congratulations to Jessica Pedemont for winning a Robs bespoke woodgrain bike . Second place goes to Chris Manos who wins a Prancing Horse  Ferrari and Manfredi drive and dine experience. Third place goes to Marta Gurzeda, Edwina Howie and Carolina Schuiling who will join us for dinner at the next Italian Regional Dinner Series at Balla.
