Drop Everything: Wine-Infused Coffee is Now a Thing

Molinari Private Reserve, a café in Nappa Valley, has completely changed the game with their new creation: wine-infused coffee.

Cosmopolitan reports that the reserve has created this masterpiece by taking wine and roasting it with coffee beans. The blend smells like wine but tastes like coffee with just a hint of blueberry.

It took more than two years to develop the beverage, according to Refinery29. The combination takes nutritional benefits from both wine and coffee, primarily antioxidants.

Depending on how you prepare it, the combination can take on different flavors. The Molinari Private Reserve website says the coffee tastes more like wine if you add more milk. If you use a French press, you can bring out more of the blueberry flavor. You can also create lattes and espresso shots with the coffee, and best of all, you can make cold brew as well.

Rick Molinari, the owner of Molinari Caffe in Napa Valley, California, told Fox News he came up with what he calls "the best of both worlds" in 2013 after talking with friend and fellow coffee roaster John Weaver.

Molinari began selling the coffee in 2014, but an earthquake forced him to put his business on hold. Now, he's back and doing better than ever. Molinari told Fox News he shipped 175 bags of the coffee on Thursday and received requests for 60 more on Friday.

"I knew that this would get big, but I didn't think it would get to this point," Molinari told Fox News.

The best news? It’s not just available at cafes around Napa Valley. It’s available for purchase online for $20, too. However, the coffee is in such high demand that it is currently out of stock, unfortunately.

This duo won’t get you drunk, either. The wine is pretty much just infused in the coffee for flavor, but we’ll take it.
