BellaVitano is a Wisconsin original inspired by the big hard cheeses of Italy. Aged until it packs a flavor punch, BellaVitano is a many times award winner for its consistent crowd-pleasing flavor. This version is rubbed with ground espresso on the rind, taking the Italian influence to the max.
The cheese itself is buttery and slightly fruity-sweet, with salty nutty notes. The espresso adds a smooth earthy smokiness that harmonizes perfectly with the cheese. A fun cheese for entertaining, it can also be enjoyed as a midday snack with a real espresso, or in an after-dinner dessert course.
Ingredients:Bellavitano cheese (pasteurized milk, cheese culture, salt, enzymes), roasted ground coffee.
