Caffe Corretto

Jan shares this beautiful Italian coffee with a shot of Grappa.

Recipe from: 10 October 2011
Preparation time: 5 min
Cooking time: 5 min


  • 1
    slice of Panforte
  • 1
  • 1
    shot glass of Grappa - at room temperature
Servings: Change Serving



Prepare the slices of Panforte and glasses of Grappa first as you don’t want to serve your guests cold coffee.

Either make a pot of espresso on the stove using your stove top Italian Espresso coffee machine.


If you have a fabulous machine that does the whole enchilada automatically, like grinds the beans freshly, heats the water, percolates the coffee and produces single doses of espresso at the push of a button.  Then use that.

Fill your espresso cups and serve your guests immediately.

Pour the tot of Grappa into your coffee.

Dunk your Panforte into your coffee and enjoy.

Tip of the day

Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
