Coffee Culture

Coffee Culture "The usual?” "il solito?” Our regulars don't even need to ask for their favorite. Our barista know as they walk in. Our Arabica blend is a favorite in north of Italy, and features in some of the most iconic temples of Italian coffee culture : Caffe' la Fenice Theatre, Venice, Caffe' Greco Rome, Galleria Uffizi Florence.

A rich blend of carefully selected, single origin coffees. A coffee with a smooth yet intense flavour, medium body and fine acidity. It has a pleasing fruity aroma and an aftertaste with hints of bitter cocoa.
