Caffè al pistacchio

Some time ago, our lovely neighbor served us caffè al piatacchio. I immediately fell in love with this sensational Sicilian treat. It’s a marriage made in heaven of creamy pistachio butter and bitter espresso. How lucky I was when I by coincidence found a jar of pistachio butter in our pantry.

For optimal visual effect, serve this coffee drink in a glass cup. Place a spoonful of pistachio butter (crema al pistacchio) in the bottom of the cup. Prepare a shot of espresso directly onto the pistachio butter in the cup. Alternatively, if you’re using a stovetop espresso maker, carefully pour the espresso into the cup to preserve the crema. Stir before enjoying. Salute!

  3. I had never heard of it before. But I like pistachio very much, so I will try it. In Italy we also drink a cup of espresso with a scoop of ice-cream in it! Next time…

    I love affogato 😍☕️🍦 That’s so delicious 😋 As far as I’m concerned, espresso with pistachio is very much regional (Sicilian). But maybe I’m ill informed.
