Even in Canada with the fall, comes coffee 'corrected' with a bracing dose of spirit, Le Marche-style

Even in Canada with the fall, comes coffee 'corrected' with a bracing dose of spirit, Le Marche-style | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

You’ll have trouble finding it outside of Ontario for the time being, but the ideal, Goldilocks option for lacing your caffè correttos, according to many Italians, is Varnelli L’Anice Secco Speciale. It’s licorice-flavoured, but sophisticated and very dry.
Orietta Varnelli, who represents the fourth generation running the boutique family distillery in the Marche region, says her father told her that a teaspoon of anise liquor is enough, “So you don’t cloud the flavour, robustness, colour or heat of the coffee.” Use the remainder to rinse your cup, and drink that down, too.

Saccaria: Le Marche's Coffee from 1882

Saccaria: Le Marche's Coffee from 1882 | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

Caffe Saccaria, one of Italy’s oldest established coffee businesses.
Like most of our producers, Saccaria have a great and well documented story of how their business began: on 17th August 1806, a barchetto loaded with coffee and pepper dropped anchor in the then free-trade port of Senigallia. The men in the boat were the forefathers of the families that, in 1882, started the Saccaria coffee importing and roasting business.
The factory is filled with the delicious smell of fresh coffee, from the store filled with hessian sacks of fresh beans from South America, India and Africa, to the roasting rooms where the beans are gently toasted at 200ºC for 15 minutes, to the blending and packing room, where the coffee is snuggled into its distinctive Saccaria branded packs. Saccaria invites you in Senigallia to tour their small factory and, of course, taste a cup or two. (thanks to: http://justsoitalian.wordpress.com)
