The origin of coffee with Amaretto
Amaretto coffee became a very popular drink in Italy in the 1960s, thanks to the growing demand for sweet and almond-flavored liqueurs in the region. The drink can be served hot or cold and enjoyed at any time of the day.
Amaretto is an Italian liqueur made from bitter almonds, sugar, and alcohol.
Its origin dates back to the Renaissance, specifically to the town of Saronno, where, according to legend, a widow created the original recipe to thank an artist who had painted a fresco of the Virgin in her church.
The original recipe remained a secret for many years but was eventually sold to the Reina family, who began producing the liqueur commercially.
Did you know that the word “Amaretto” means “little bitter” in Italian? It is believed that the name is due to the fact that Amaretto liqueur is made from bitter almonds.
