We drink coffee at breakfast, lunch and after dinner; many of us east cheese at breakfast, lunch and sometimes after dinner. So a combination of cheese and coffee is a rather logical one and the Sartori Cheese company made a winning product with their Espresso BellaVitano.
Freshly roasted espresso is hand-rubbed into wheels of BellaVitano and aged to creamy perfection.
The cheese received a Silver Medal in the 2010 World Cheese Awards and a 3rd place in the 2011 American Cheese Society Competition. It pairs well with Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Merlot and Chardonnay or with your fruit beers, stout, Porter beer, Trappist style ale or Barley wine. Food pairings are also multiple, how about chocolate, dried fruit, sweet pastries, honey.
