Whether consumed straight up, with steamed milk or as an affogato, our coffee drinks are inspired by Italian espresso-based offerings.
Each drink is made with expertly steamed milk, as well as, oat, almond or soy milk upon request.
Vigilante Coffee is a local DC roaster that sources high-quality beans directly from farms all over the world, maintaining strict standards every step of the way. Pitango shares Vigilante’s passion for its craft and its uncompromising commitment to quality.
Coffee Training Program
It takes weeks of practice and developing coffee aptitude before our team members can serve espresso drinks. We go to great lengths to ensure Pitango certified baristas have the skills to pull a perfect shot and steam milk to peak temperature and texture.
Fortunata Espresso Blend
Unlike single-origin brews, espresso requires a blend of coffees; each variety in the blend creates one facet of the flavor profile. Over time, a roaster must maintain the blend’s character, which is no easy task.
We collaborated with Vigilante for months to create a custom espresso blend offered exclusively at all Pitango locations. Called Fortunata, it combines Brazilian, Indonesian and Ethiopian beans for a unique flavor profile.
Named for Noah Dan’s Italian grandmother, Fortunata features notes of fruit and honey along with a nutty and toasty flavor. It is strong and feisty, but never bitter.
Dolcenera Cold Brew Blend
Named after a popular Italian song about a sweet, dark and tempestuous tryst, Dolcenera, or “sweet and dark” perfectly describes our cold brew. Created exclusively for Pitango by Vigilante, this South American blend is made up of natural-process Brazilian and washed-process Ecuadorian coffees.
Matrimonio Drip Coffee Blend
Our Matrimonio blend is a marriage of two incredible single-origin coffees. Vigilante Coffee directly sources and blends these two varieties exclusively for Pitango. By combining Brazilian Capim Seco and Ecuadorian Alambi coffee, we achieve a classic taste for this new third-wave coffee approach. Medium-roasted Matrimonio is a rich, smooth blend with notes of milk chocolate, almond, caramel, and a buttery finish.
