Caffetteria - Mercato Centrale Roma Termini Coffee in Rome

Rating: Third wave coffee in Rome

If you ever had the chance to walk southwards from Termini’s entrance down the Via Giovanni Giolitti street I’m sure you couldn’t have missed seeing this amazing, and gargantuan closed up hanger-like area of Termini station. It’s a huge, beautiful hall that is at least 5 stories high, decorated by an all open brick work and with an imposing central furnace-like chimney head made out of deep purple-read marble. I must have imagined to myself hundreds of times what a locale using this space must have felt like- and now, fortunately, you can.


As is usual here in Rome, they’re left out in open bins. The family that does all the roasting, both first, second and if you look at their Facebook page, third generation, know their coffee and the 2nd gen. roaster I was speaking to would have been able to tell me exactly where he got his coffee from. I was in a rush this evening so I didn’t, but he’s totally open about his primary materials, and knew his stuff. So nice!
