Hazy copper color. Sweet, toasty aromas and flavors of creme brulee crust, coffee and root beer candy, raisin french toast with fig jam, and toasted hazelnut with a silky, crisp, moderately sweet light-to-medium body and a tingling, compelling, breezy finish that shows notes of cappuccino gelato, caramelized fruits, and shaved chocolate finish. A rock solid coffee liqueur that deserves another sip; vibrant and chocolatey.

Coffee liqueurs, made with coffee and alcohol, are some of the most popular liqueurs in the world. Producers in countries around the world craft versions, from Ireland to Italy to Mexico. A basic type is creme de cacao, made from the extract of cocoa beans, while others coffee liqueurs are famed as particular brand names. Alcoholic content ranges from 18% to 30%.

Coffee liqueurs can be served hot or cold, neat or over ice or served with cola or, of course, coffee. They also serve as the base for famous cocktails such as a White or Black Russian.
