Many years ago, Cortese Caffé was a drug, drunk secretly, in pharmacies in Italy, the forerunners of today’s coffee shops.
According to the myth, the name Cortese, Italian for courteous, was the nickname given to a young medical student, who inspired the Cortese blend. It is said that he chose, instead of following the norms of his aristocratic origin, to mix in with the «commons» as his heart dictated.
The coffee varieties in the Cortese Caffé blend are selective and are roasted separately before being mixed. The blend is rich and aromatic with hints of chocolate and nuts.
