Coffee culture

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.
