Marble Distilling Company, Crystal River Moonlight EXpresso is a modern take on an old world recipe. Inspired by the Italian craftsmen who worked long hours in the Marble quarry, Moonlight EXpresso is a complex dark roasted coffee liqueur that blends locally roasted dark coffee beans and Ugandan vanilla beans with a touch of sweetness. If it was enough to keep the workers of Marble working through the wee hours, it’s more than enough for you. Marble vodka pictured not included.
Bonfire Roasters & Craft Coffee in Carbondale, Colorado small batch roasts the beans used in this liqueur. Their quest is to consciously and ethically source the highest quality coffees, and benefit every community involved, from farm to your cup.
