Coffee is an essential part of a huge chunk of the urban population across the globe. A lot of people need their caffeine fix to jump start a lousy work morning and just can’t do without it.

A cafe in Napa Valley in California, US, has come up with a a unique beverage that will raise the spirits of both oenophiles and caffeine heads alike. The wine infused coffee is a product by Molinari Private Reserve and it’s driving coffee lovers around the world, nuts.
The product has been created by Molinari in association with master roaster John Weaver of Wild Card Roasters and is Molinari’s latest and hottest gourmand product this year. The process of creation of the product is as fascinating as the product itself sounds.

However, the normal standard drip machine works well too. The website also gives directions to prepare a delicious cup of this amazing brew and warns against letting it sit in a burner, as that will overcook the coffee. “Adding milk will change the format and bringing the wine taste out first, then the balance of coffee second. Any leftovers can be put in your refrigerator and served cold”, say the directions. The coffee is available for online sale but is Out of Stock currently, according to the website.

This one-of-a-kind gourmet brew doesn’t come cheap. To buy the Molinari wine infused coffee, you’ll have to pay $19.95 (Rs 1,300 approx.) in damages for a half pound (about 230 gms) bag. This means the coffee is priced at approximately Rs 5200/Kg! Well, anything for great taste, am I right? However, if you’re expecting to get a good buzz after drinking the coffee, you are going to be disappointed. The brew has a heavenly blueberry note to the taste, but it’s not alcoholic. Ergo, this drink is not meant for the tipplers and the dipsomaniacs.
