Terranima Café



Yesterday I took my midmorning coffee in this tiny and very cute café in Parona, a village a few miles from Verona, along the Adige River. Stepping inside I was welcomed by the warm scent of the freshly ground coffe - oh, so irresistible!
I approached the wooden bar and asked for an espresso. The guy, called Marco, prepared my coffee and served it along with a little glass of water (quite a typical thing in Verona) and then placed a small leaflet with information about the type of coffee he served me (basically a selection of four types of Arabica).
I couldn't help, I had to take some pictures!

I would think you'd want to make this a regular stop! What a cool place! With hot coffee/espresso!

Super photos, too!

I know where I would want to be all the time: right here! And I can hardly blame you for wanting to take pictures--I would take them too! Lots.

I love it! Italians really love their coffees and they treat them with respect.

Wish I was in Verona having a cup of coffee with you.
