The coppa, or pork collar, is a cut synonymous with charcuterie the world over. Characterised by it’s natural golden ratio of lean muscle to fat (around 70:30) it has a deep, rich flavour and a wonderful texture. Tempus add to this incredible cut a delicate blend of carefully sourced whole spices that we grind and blend in-house, including cardamom, cloves and cinnamon.
