Napa Valley coffee brand Molinari Private Reserve (MPR) has found its place in the hearts of wine and coffee lovers with its line of wine-infused coffee.
MPR initially started as an experimental project between brand founder Rick Molinari and John Weaver, master coffee roaster at Wild Card Roasters. They eventually became the first coffee company to successfully infuse coffee beans with wine, according to the company website.
Each blend in the brand’s collection is made from coffee beans that are “rehydrated to a specific liquid percentage using a special house-made red.” Then the coffee beans are dried and roasted.
Unfortunately, the wine-infused coffee is non-alcoholic, but produces “rich full-bodied coffee with a blueberry note.”
MPR sells its coffee at Molinari Caffè, Robert Mondavi Winery, Franciscan Estate Winery, and JCB Wines. The bags of wine coffee are also sold for $19.95 online but are currently out of stock. MPR will resume taking orders the week of March 13 and will begin shipping orders on March 20.
