Those three little words that my husband loves to hear:
I know. I know.
That NEVER happens.
It’s a weird feeling, this wrongness.
But I need to correct my own misperception – Tram Depot actually serves great Third Wave coffee.
Too small to roast any beans, Tram Depot sources its coffee from Lady Café.
The artisan roaster, based outside of Parma, has 11 single origin coffees, and Tram Depot keeps two in rotation at any given time.
I have been stopping in a lot lately to speak to the lovely ladies who work there, while taking a deep and rich caffe.
I have sat at the table to write in the sun-dappled shade with a dripper.
I’ve gone back for iced coffee, that is refreshing without losing its flavour to dilution.
I have even retried the cappuccino. The cappuccio might still be my least favorite – though perhaps I simply need to ask for the milk to be a bit hotter.
The cornetti, from deliFrance, are made with butter and wholly satisfying.
We still go on aimless evenings for a glass of wine, but Tram Depot has quickly become my new go-to Testaccio coffee joint when I need a speciality fix.
