Coffee in Italy Question
January 2, 2014 2:49 PM Subscribe
A friend just moved to Italy and has mentioned that almost all of the cafes in Milan and Rome now serve a product called Caffe al Ginseng (coffee with ginseng). Given Italy's status as one of the authentic and original coffee cultures, I was surprised to hear about the seaming popularity on this new offering. Can anyone shed some light on this coffee type?

Is it part of mainstream Italian coffee culture or does it cater to a specific demographic? Does it offer any health benefits over regular coffee? I am searched for answers, but have been mostly unsuccessful in finding any insight into how Caffe al Ginseng fits into everyday Italian experience.
