Ten Rome baristas who brighten your day

Whether you drink it or not, it’s hard not to succumb to Italy’s coffee culture and the conviviality that comes with it.


Whatever struggles you endure in Italy, there is usually an atmospheric bar not far away, with a barista who somehow manages to wipe away your troubles, even if just for a few minutes.

It could be the simple pleasantries they exchange with customers, or the dedication they devote to either perfecting your cappuccino or beautifying it with a chocolate-laced design.

Italy's baristas work hard. Not only to they train for two to three years to hone their skills, but they usually start work at 6am and are still working the coffee machines at 9pm.

So The Local felt it was about time they were celebrated, and so we scoured the city to sample not only good coffee, but to find the best baristas.
