Product Fusion: Wine-Infused Coffee

Molinari Private Reserve

Napa Valley-based coffee brand Molinari Private Reserve has collaborated with master roaster John Weaver of California's Wild Card Roasters to develop a range of wine-infused coffee.

Created by soaking (or 'relaxing') coffee beans in red wine produced especially by local vineyards in Napa Valley before roasting, the resulting non-alcoholic coffee offers a rich, full-bodied flavour with a hint of blueberry. It can be enjoyed in a number of ways, including as a latte, espresso or iced, while adding milk is said to intensify the wine flavour.

Developed over the course of two years, the combination of coffee and wine also has the health benefit of doubling the amount of antioxidants available in traditional coffee.

The coffee is available at several Napa wineries and online for $19.95 for a half-pound bag.
