Aneri Tricaffe: Run, Don’t Walk To Corso Coffee To Try Some!

By: Anne M. Raso

I recently was lucky enough to attend a recent event at Corso Coffee in the newly renovated Paramount Hotel. You might know the space as the former Dean & Deluca (the first one ever in Manhattan)—it has been turned into a light, airy and modern place for friends to hang out, grab a pastry, frittata, homemade blueberry muffins and/or a world-class cup of coffee. But I must say that he scent of the coffee at Corso is like no other coffee house in town. As a matter of fact, when I am walking by the theater district, I simply have to walk in or by Corso to get a whiff.

The first time I was at Corso, I immediately wanted to know what kind of coffee that they use, especially for their heavenly cappuccino, and then I noticed bags of Aneri Tricaffe Super behind the counter (which patrons which patrons will soon be able to purchase as 2.2 pound bags of whole beans or ground. LDV Hospitality who owns The Paramount went to long lengths to select a coffee that would not be available anywhere else in the city and was worth going out one’s way for, and they certainly did their job.
Why am I and other foodies saying that this could possibly be New York’s best cup of Joe? Well, Aneri Tricaffe Super coffee features a variety of Robustas and Arabicas from South America and regions of India and Africa, combined to form a classic European blend but they are wood roasted, which helps the beans retain more of their original flavor and aroma. All beans are hand-selected and only 60 pounds of beans are roasted at a time. Aneri Tricaffe Super and its sister coffee blends have been manufactured in Italy since 1949 and you will fall in love with its strong clean taste, ideally suited for cappuccino or Cafe Au Lait.
On the East Coast, it is served exclusively at Corso and at The Revel in Atlantic City. Once you taste this iconic Italian coffee, you won't be able to drink anything else and you might even want to rub the beans on your skin and wear the warm scent as perfume, LOL. For more info, go to I think that once Aneri is available for consumers to take home, many local fine food stores will try to pick up on it as well. Aneri Tricaffe Super might just be the “Cronut” of coffees, LOL!
