Happy National Coffee day to my fellow Americans!
I love me some coffee.
Most days, slightly burnt and rather acidic Roman espresso will do just fine.
Other times, I have to go to Florence for the day.
Ditta Artigianale was everything I dreamed it would be.
The second location, in Florence’s Oltrarno area, is a well designed space that makes you want to hang out for awhile.
The menu is extensive, with Italian and international coffee styles.
Breaking out of the mold a bit, I went for aeropress.
Though, Sara’s iced latte definitely looked a tad more refreshing on a summer day.
For those who want to stick to the classics, Ditta Artigianale has a beautiful Florentine-made marzotto espresso machine.
And for after-hours? Well, the rose gold cocktail shakers caught my eye in the gin corner.
We would have loved to stay for lunch, but set off in search of lampredotto instead.
I will definitely be stopping at Ditta Artigianale again the next time I am in Florence. For those looking for third wave coffee in Rome, we have Tram Depot to hold us over.
