CAO Italia

Two+ years ago CAO brand of General Cigar released CAO Italia and CAO Brazilia coffee to be paired with the corresponding CAO Cigars. These were offered in gift sets. The coffee is a dark Italian Roast. For this coffee libation, the coffee was coarse ground and brewed in a stove-top percolator.

CAO Italia Roast Brewed
The CAO Italia was about a medium strength and medium-bodied coffee. I was expecting a little more pop for a dark roast. There were mild nutty undertones to this coffee when I drank it black. Overall, a satisfactory cup and I can see pairing it with many types of cigars. However, the hunt to try to find a bag of these might not be worth the effort.
