Coffee Sambuca


An image of Sambuca served with three coffee beans.

The three coffee beans stand for health, happiness and prosperity.

Coffee Sambuca is probably the easiest Italian coffee drink out there. Just float three coffee beans in one to two ounces Sambuca and sip it slowly as an aperitif or digestif.

The three coffee beans symbolize health, happiness and prosperity. They can be chewed to complement the anise notes in the Sambuca or left as a garnish.
