The Best Coffee In All Of Roma!

I absolutely love Roma.

Everything about it.

Especially the delicious coffee.

Now, I'm normally a Starbucks girl myself, but they don't have any of that here in Rome! What they have is better...

Their coffee drinking culture is so different from in the states. In the US, I would drive to Starbucks, grab my grande mocha frappuccino and get back in my car and be on my way. Not so, in Rome.

In Rome, take-away coffee is virtually unheard of. Italians order their coffee, and stand at "the bar" and drink their coffee. The cups are usually quite small, but also filling. No venti cups here!

Today, my art history professor took us to what he told us was the best coffee place in Rome. It's near the Pantheon and called Tazzo D'oro. He suggested we all try a "granita di caffe" or an iced coffee. I love iced coffee at home, so I was excited to try this.

Coffee place..Tazzo D'oro

The coffee came in a small plastic cup with what looked like coffee grounds and some whipped cream. I mixed the whipped cream in with the icy coffee and took a sip. It was AMAZING. I've never had anything like it. It was the perfect amount of coffee without feeling too full or gross.


We all enjoyed our coffee sitting outside the shop chatting.

Much nicer than the drive-through at Starbucks, right?

One of my favorite things about Italy was all the wonderful, fresh coffee. For the first time in my life, I enjoyed a cappuccino. It's been a while since I had a cup that good.
