Our barley

There is a raw material that best expresses the soul of Crastan: barley.

We have always selected the best Italian varieties and to trace the entire chain we only enter into sowing contracts with certified farms.

Immersed in the hilly regions of Italy are the precious fields where our barley grows, ripened in the sun and lulled by the gentle hillside breeze.

With care and after attentive checks we gather the ears, which are cleaned to obtain the precious grains of barley.

It is here that their journey begins, a journey that brings the authenticity of the cereal to your most relaxing coffee breaks.
