Cortadito Coffee Recipe

I have been exposed to some crazy TV shows since I have been married, but this one by far takes the cake.  So the other week, I get this text from my wife saying, “The Kardashian’s keep getting these Cortadito coffees, WE HAVE TO TRY THESE!”  So, after some research on what the heck she was talking about I was able to make this recipe inspired by the amazing and talented (kidding) Kardashian sisters.  Also before I start, there is of course a giveaway!  Check out this Cortadito Coffee Recipe.

Chef Billy Parisi’s Coffee of the Month: Paradise Roasters (Romance)

Chef Billy Parisi's Coffee of The Month, Paradise Roasters, Coffee of the Month, Coffee Club,

   This coffee is much lighter than I expected given the strong aroma it puts out.  I know I am often too  nice, but this coffee really is incredibly smooth and delicious.  The Romance by Paradise is so pale that I threw the first pot away because I thought I had messed up.  However it was I that didn’t know any better, and the coffee was just fine.  By just looking at the whole beans you can tell they were not roasted for very long, but don’t let the color fool you because this coffee is dang tasty. Also cool…

Chef Billy Parisi’s Coffee of the Month: illy

Never in my life have I tasted a stronger, smoother coffee than Illy.  I am not really partial to strong dark coffee, but I could sip this all day long and feel like I was drinking a light morning blend, that’s how smooth it was.  Best way to describe it is a deep coffee flavor with no bite.   I started by freshly grinding the beans and the steeping it in a Bialetti only to finish it off with frothed milk and a sugar swizzle stick.  I literally had a mini cafe going on in Casa de Parisi!  For all those…

Chef Billy Parisi’s Coffee of the Month: Madcap

Since I am an avid coffee drinker I am going to test a new coffee every month and give you my review.  It starts this month (September) with Madcap “El Roble” Costa Rican coffee.  We visited Costa Rica a few years ago and fell in love with every coffee we (My wife and I) tried, and this is no different.  Tasting it brought back so many great memories of the forrest, the beach and the long walks.  This strong, yet smooth crisp coffee is so soothing and will wake you up ASAP if you need a good kick in the…
