There are dozens and dozens of varieties of beans in Italy. One of the rarest and most unobtainable is definitely the Monachella bean. Its seed is jealously guarded by the Angelini family, which grows it on the slopes of the Umbrian Apennines, ideal soil for the development of the chromatic and organoleptic characteristics of this legume. It often happens that this bean is all sold out well in advance of the end of the season, and that says a lot about how much they like it!
Monachelle beans have a well-defined flavor, so much so that they can afford to be enjoyed even if only boiled and dressed with an excellent Italian extra virgin olive oil. They need to be soaked for about 12 hours before being cooked for an hour on low heat or for half an hour in the pressure cooker. Our advice? Soak them in cold water in the evening, rinse them the next morning and cook them for lunch or dinner!

We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
