Caffè Sant’Eustachio is an iconic destination in Rome just as famous as the Colosseum. Located between Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, Sant’Eustachio coffee bar has been producing its signature coffee since 1938. Romans in the know stop here for their liquid fuel, daily doses of espresso and cappuccino. Why so popular? Sant’Eustachio coffee is wood roasted, just as they did in the 1930s and ’40s: slowly and naturally, without chemical processing. The coffee, selected by owner Roberto Ricci, comes from a blend of 100% Arabica high altitude grown beans. The aroma is fragrant and unique, the taste is smooth and sweet, and the acidity low. Roberto travels the world, visiting farms, in search of the best coffee beans in Central and South America, East Africa and the Caribbean. He along with his brother Raimondo support the building of schools and hospitals in the regions where they buy their coffee. In addition, 90% of their coffee comes from organic and fair trade sources. All of these factors create a coffee known across the globe. William Grimes, formerly of the New York Times, advised those in the U.S. seeking a perfect espresso, “When the need for a real espresso becomes overpowering, buy a ticket to Rome, tell the taxi driver to head straight for the Sant’Eustachio Caffe’. The espresso will be perfect. A little expensive, but surely worth the trouble.” The choice is yours… a Roman Holiday or Gustiamo. Sant’Eustachio Decaffeinated ground coffee provides the same wonderful taste without all the caffeine. This coffee proves that you don’t have to be a caffeine-seeker to enjoy great Italian coffee. It is also excellent for decaf Tiramisu.
