Coffee wine is here to solve all your problems

If you love wine and coffee as much as you love some members of your own family, you're about to have your mind blown. 

Some geniuses in California's wine region created the ultimate drinking experience for those obsessed with both coffee and wine.

Molinari Private Reserve has been busy lately creating a wine infused coffee product that will make your morning latte taste a little bit like your evening Shiraz. 

According to the company's website, the venture started two years ago as an experiment between Napa-based Molinari Caffe owner, Rick Molinari, and Wild Card Roasters' coffee roaster, John Weaver.

While these two men had heard of people adding a nip of wine to their espresso, they sought to bring about a way to get both the wine and the coffee in one hit. To this end, they began rehydrating their beans in a red wine made from a local winery - resulting in a coffee with a slight berry flavour.

You can enjoy the coffee with milk (which brings out the blueberry notes, Molinari's website explains) or cold. However, the website does say that, much like wine, the longer the coffee sits, the better it will taste - which will be bad news for those who like to scoff down an espresso first thing before work! It should also be noted that Molinari's wine-infused coffee is not alcoholic.

Since news broke of Molinari's coffee wine, the brand has completely sold out of their stock. You can place a backorder for a minimum of five bags at a cost of USD $20 each, but it might just be worth it to book yourself a trip to the Napa Valley and swing by Molinari Caffe for their now world-famous cup of joe. 

While Molinari's product is garnering a lot of attention, it certainly isn't the first coffee-wine product to hit the market. In 2014, a brand called Friends Fun Wine in a Can created a Chardonnay Capuccino and a Cabernet Espresso - both sold in a can!

Meanwhile, a Malaysian businessman is gaining popularity in China after making a coffee-infused wine (as opposed to Molinari's wine-infused coffee). Turns out, there's something for everybody!
