Subject: Specialty coffee roasters Italy
 

Does anyone have any knowledge/recommendations of artisan specialty coffee roasters in Italy, preferably with a web-shop? I've tried a few of the local roasteries, but was not overly impressed as the overall quality was nowhere near the blends from some of the British and Finnish roasters I have tried before (problem with them is that it takes 9-10 days to deliver to Italy).

Thanks!

Do you know Sant'Eustachio Il Caffè in Rome? It's hard to say if they still qualify as a microroaster, or if they are rather an industrial coffee roaster. At least they try hard to give the impression of an artisan roaster.

Hmm they seem to ship minimum 2kg at once (and not that cheaply either); I use cca. 250g/week, so this is definitely too much for me.. Thanks though...

You could freeze the beans you don't consume immediately in order to keep them fresh.
