"Italian style end-of-meal combinations

Coffee, brandy and dessert are the classic Italian characteristics served at the end of a meal. How is it possible to combine them in order to obtain the highest pleasure? This is revealed by the sensory analysis tests carried out with the Big Sensory Test Combinations method.
