About the drink

The drinks inspiration comes from Italian coffee style tradition. "Caffe Corretto" is widely enjoyed through the country, this beverage consists in a single/double shot of coffee with a little correction/addition of local amaro or brandy and occasionally cream.

We wanted to highlight the perfect match between coffee and cream but avoiding going for heavy/thick drink. Vanilla and cinnamon notes found in rum pairs well with coffee aroma. A light and creamy drink

Coffee here is still the star of the drink but not an overpowering ingredient.

Coffee bags are let to macerate with mineral water for 24 hours, following that its strained and demerara sugar and lactic acid are added to it to balance. The last step is carbonation.
