Espresso Dark Balsamic




Our espresso balsamic is crafted using decaffeinated Italian espresso as an ingredient. Expect to feel the fine espresso granules that enhance this vinegar’s long, rich, and velvety finish. Pair this vinegar with any Medium Super Premium EVOO, Chipotle infused olive oil or Roasted Walnut oil for a marvelous, easy vinaigrette that can be used for salads or as a marinade for grilled steak or pork. Try this vinegar in a martini or over vanilla gelato for a unique experience.

  • Combine with Chipotle, or Garlic, to marinate steaks; makes great fajita marinade.
  • Use it to add depth to your chili or baked beans.
  • Drizzle over fresh berries or tiramisu.
  • For a delicious dessert, drizzle it over pineapple chunks or brush it on pears, peaches, and pineapple rings before grilling.
  • Combine with Blood Orange olive oil and use to marinate pork tenderloin.

    So tasty

    Just returned from a trip to Lancaster and stopped at the Kitchen Kettle Village and happened upon the Olive Basin. What a wonderful store and the flavored balsamic vinegars are amazing. I purchased some and plan to order more varieties.
