The coffee extract itself is of excellent strength and quality - similar to what I've used in pastry school - and perfect for Moka cake!
I give it 4 stars only because the dispensing cap is leaky; whenever I pour, it leaks below the pour spout and down the sides of the bottle.
Trablit is the best coffee extract I have ever used. It contains real coffee and it’s not watery like the other brand. Coffee flavour is strong and it’s best for the opera cake, glad that it’s available at Gusta!
I have always used espresso powder or a shot of espresso coffee when flavouring my pastry creams. As I became a more confident baker, I began referencing French cookbooks or websites and noticed that Trablit was the coffee extract of choice. To state that this extract brings the flavour up to a new level is an understatement. Don't get me wrong -- a shot of strong, Italian espresso has its place in baking, but if you want a subtle, elegant coffee essence (think eclairs, profiteroles or macarons), without sacrificing a genuine coffee taste, Trablit is the way to go. This extract is difficult to find in Canada -- thank goodness for Gusta.
