What can beat the aroma of fresh coffee in the morning?
Filed under Uncategorized
Not the one I was thinking of but I now have it bookmarked to check out.
ODM! Six weeks from this moment I’ll be there!
Is that the Gruppion place? I probably didn’t spell it right. I have to try there too. I’m taking “Cafe Life” with me. Planning to check out each place in the book.
I’m not sure of the name. It’s on the right hand side as you walk toward the bridge as though going to the train station. It’s just a small place, dark, folks drinking coffee, bags of coffee beans …

Last time I pretty much just got the Punto house brand but I hope to find this place open on this trip and try theirs. I walked by at a variety of times….maybe they take a holiday in December:
Good luck! There’s also a place on the Rio Terà San Leonardo, very near the Guglie Bridge where they grind coffee for you.
Wow, Yvonne, I don’t remember ever seeing this post but since it was three years ago (!) I’m not surprised. My usual comment is that if I didn’t have the same thing for breakfast every morning I wouldn’t remember by lunch what I’d had.
I agree that it was probably the dreadful instant coffee that Russell had back in ’73. I never liked coffee till I was well into my 40’s and learned about good cappuccino! And always had to insist on making the coffee myself when I visited my parents (which they always diluted with water).
Ah, the little moka reminds me of where I will be so soon. I have one here but it’s not the same as on the gas burner in Venice (electric stoves are lacking).
That was one of the very early posts, I had forgotten all about it, until it came up as a post someone had looked at yesterday. There are a lot of memories tucked away on my blog. What brand of coffee do you buy in Venice?
I love the aroma of coffee and coffee beans but the taste leaves a lot to be desired. I drank a sip of coffee once, way back in September 1973, at the behest of a college roommate. That was all it took.
I just found your remark, Russel! I wonder what kind of coffee that was, probably dreadful instant?
