Mealtime Magic: Espresso Tiramisu

Lavazza recently introduced its newest coffee varietal - Intenso Dark Roast – for the Mom that just keeps on going!  
Based on a traditional family recipe, and rated a nine out of ten on Lavazza’s intensity scale, Intenso is a bold new coffee with smoky, caramelized flavors and lingering chocolaty notes.
Intenso is available for purchase and inclusion in your Mother’s Day gift packages nationwide as well as in Canada at select retailers.
The coffee innovators behind Italy’s favorite coffee, Lavazza, created an easy Espresso Tiramisu recipe. The hot coffee finds its perfect match with the recipe’s chilled ingredients, and brings out the fragrance of the partially soaked Pasta di Meliga biscuits.
