A Guide to Italian Coffee Culture

In most countries around the world, coffee is a sacred part of people’s morning ritual. Brewing a pot at home or dropping by the local café on the way to work is how many of us get that morning boost to stay awake during the day. However, in Italy, coffee is much more than merely a morning pick-me-up. Italian coffee culture is something all of its own. The type of bean that’s used, where it’s from, the way it’s roasted, blended, ground, brewed, poured, topped – all these steps are a crucial part of the final product and experience. Each major city has its own unique coffee traditions, and like food, it is sacred to Italians where the day begins with coffee and ends with coffee. There are rules and rituals that must be followed at each step of production and consumption. Even the type and size of cup matters. There’s no doubt about it, Italians have created a coffee culture that is unlike anywhere else in the world. But to really understand why coffee is so sacred in Italy, you first have to understand Italians.

As coffee specialists, we rely heavily on Mother Earth to help us produce the delicate and aromatic beans that go into each silky, smooth cup of espresso. As a crop that spans tens of millions of acres across more than 80 different countries around the globe, this billion-dollar industry is one that has a direct and significant impact on our environment. With the increase in demand over the years, what was once a modest market with sustainable practices quickly transformed into a monocultural one to keep up with the surge in demand. These expansive practices require an excess of pesticides and fertilizers, which gradually deplete the natural resources, leaving behind dry, stripped soil, among many other adverse effects throughout local regions where coffee is grown.
