The drink known as “Porco Dio” and on our menu it’s merely described as “espresso poured over a chilly brew rock and topped with vanilla foam.”

The title and development are each impressed by one of many cooks I used to work with, named Trevor, at a restaurant again in Memphis that was known as Porcellino’s. Chef Trevor would have me make him a drink he known as “The Stomach of the Pig” often on weekends when our reservations lists have been totally booked. Mainly he wished the strongest potential drink that could possibly be made and would have me do stuff like pulling espresso photographs till they crammed a cappuccino cup. With the “Porco Dio” I attempted to raise this sentiment to a stage of decadent luxurious. The espresso is straight away chilled by the chilly brew rock and as you’re taking your sips the drink is ready to keep chilly with out watering down or perceptibly “turning into weaker.” The vanilla foam, made up of coconut cream and house-made vanilla syrup, enhances the creamy texture of the espresso whereas subtly sweetening it as effectively. The feel finally ends up sitting someplace between an ice cream float and chocolate milk. It has been an enormous hit with the parents who love to come back in and work for hours on finish.

Who crafted your signature drink?


What distinctive components does it include?

The Signature Drinks began at CoRo Espresso Room shortly after I did in the summertime of ’21 when issues started reopening after lockdown.
