The coppa arrosto is obtained from an entire anatomical cut, the pig's coppa (Boston butt). The whole coppa is flavoured with natural sea salt and an exclusive blend of spices. It is characterised by the slow cooking in the steam oven and the subsequent browning which gives it a nice caramel colour.
It expresses well its typical characteristic, pinkish to the sight with the well visible muscles surrounded by a light covering of fat. Externally well browned and captivating. A good, well-balanced roast aroma. The flavour of roast meat is firm but not aggressive, with a right flavouring that enhances its taste, good firmness and chewiness.
It is cut into thin slices using a slicer. As an alternative, thicker slices can be cut with a knife to be subsequently heated in microwave, grilled, in non-stick pan, steamed or on the barbecue. Or baked whole in the oven or in a bain-marie and then cut into thick slices with a knife.
