Coffee Extract-Infused Libations

The Riga Black Balsam Espresso Has a Rich Flavor and Finish

— August 20, 2019 — Lifestyle

The drink is reported by the brand to have a premium flavor that leaves an aftertaste of black chocolate on the palate.

Global Brand Director of Riga Black Balsam Maris Kalnins spoke on the Riga Black Balsam Espresso herbal liqueur saying, "With creating the Espresso version of Riga Black Balsam, we have combined two highly valued tastes of consumers: the unique taste of the legendary bitter and the strong, saturated espresso flavor.
