Coffee cheesecake is one of the most beloved variants of a popular and much-beloved recipe for an American dessert, the classic Cheesecake.

Packed full of coffee  flavour, the coffee cheesecake is rich in sweetness and incredibly creamy. What more could you ask for in a dessert?

It is believed that the first cheesecake was created on the Greek Island of Samos. Back then, it was used to give energy to athletes at the first Olympic games in 776 BC, and oftentimes also served as the main dessert at weddings, now known as a wedding cake.

To prepare this delicious and easy recipe, we suggest using blends such as Qualità Oro. An unmistakable Central American blend, created from the selection of the best Arabica beans, with sweet and fruity aromatic notes.
