[amˌmattsakaˈffɛ]; Italian for "coffee killer"
No Italian feast is complete without an ammazzacaffé. After a meal full of good company, good wine, and lots of good food, you’ll normally finish with an espresso, followed by the ammazzacaffé (literally, “coffee killer”): an end cap of amaro, an herbal and pleasantly bitter-yet-sweet liqueur. It’s a cherished tradition, and each producer guards their unique recipe. It’s easy to see why: a good amaro, at the end of a beautiful meal, is a moment of pure satisfaction.
