The Egypt Valley Italian Café


This aromatic and caffeinated delight is a cocktail worth slowing down for. With herbal and coffee notes, this Italian Café has a little something for everyone.

The best part? It uses local coffee beans from Third Wave Coffee in Belding and is simple enough to make at home.

Third Wave Coffee believes that coffee is a catalyst for community. They source their beans through direct relationships with farmers, meaning quality and equality are guaranteed from seed to cup.
