Mahogany color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate graham cracker, grilled cacao, moka pot coffee, and molasses cookies with a lightly tannic, vibrant, very sweet medium-to-full body and a graceful, complex, long finish. A true-to-life, smoky-roasty Coffee Liqueur with excellent balance, texture and natural acidity.

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.
