What is espresso liqueur?
The espresso liqueur contains two varieties of dark roasted coffee beans: 55% Arabica coffee beans from Colombia and Brazil and 45% Robusta coffee beans from India and Kenya. The Arabica coffee beans give a chocolaty creamy and delicate top note, while the Robusta contributes body and bitter coffee flavored tones.
