Best coffee in Rome

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!



Funny how things are, but a little less than a few weeks ago a local third wave coffee enthusiast here in Rome told me about the Pergamino Caffè. It had just opened up and was brewing coffee in all crazy kinds of ways. I had intentions of going there with him when I got notice that the Pergamino Caffè was having a grand opening (happened yesterday, 19 Sunday June 2016). The place on the Piazza Risorgimento, right next to the Vatican (and those that are going to go to the museum should stop by here before standing in the crazy long line). It is a small mono-locale, with open brick interior. A long sit down counter against the left wall, and then of course a very long bar, the setup is very impressive and we’ll see it below. Either way, the grand opening was great, tons of coffee tasting all on the house. There were three baristas cranking out the coffee and two or more waiters that were bringing out food and other things. As you'll see, it was packed.

Next to the Martino Cafe in Isola del Liri (outside of Rome), this has to be the best surprise so far. The Tram Depot, a little stand on the Via Marmorata near the Pyramid (and the Ostiense Train Station) is a really wonderful coffee experience. Let’s see why:
