The ideal coffee for this recipe

Perfetto

Dark and velvety

Perfetto has a full flavor with persistent caramelized notes. It is roasted longer to produce a "perfect" and characteristically Italian dark and full-bodied taste. The ideal choice for those who love bold coffee with caramel tasting notes.
