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.
