Based in Busche, a town in the Province of Belluno, Italy, Lattebusche is a cooperative that has been active in the dairy industry for more than 40 years. Best known for producing Piave, Busche is a pristine area rich in grazing land that has always been naturally devoted to cattle farming. Characterized by extremely cold weather with plenty of snowfalls in winter and short, cool summers, the Province of Belluno is a typical alpine environment.
Caprino is made from a blend of goat's milk and cow's milk, and, with the addition of black peppercorns, this cheese has a distinctive flavor. The expert blending of the two milks and the careful aging give us a cheese that is aromatic, with hints of the acidity of the goat's milk, yet still retains all the sweetness of the cow's milk. Sweet when young, it becomes more and more intense with age. It can be eaten on its own as a second course, cut into cubes to prepare salads, or used as a decoration for starters made with raw vegetables. We love to shave it over pasta and grilled steaks.
