Sant’Eustachio Il Caffè – Tom’s Espresso

Sant’Eustachio Il Caffè is an ancient Coffee Shop and Roaster that was born in the thirties.  Elizabetta introduced me one rainy afternoon 20 years ago, and I instantly fell in love with both.  It is not only my preferred espresso but the experience of the cafe itself, worth traveling around the globe for –  TH25ac0780e7a01869b91dd30df2788914
Located in the heart of Rome, in front of the Senato della Repubblica palace, it is just a few steps away from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon.

Founded in 1938, the symbol of Sant’Eustachio Il Caffè is a stag which recalls the apparition and conversion to Christianity of the previously pagan Eustace.

In 1999 the brothers Raimondo and Roberto Ricci began to run Sant’Eustachio Il Caffè. They decided to carry on the tradition, selecting the best coffee varieties and offering a range of products prepared with a legendary secret blend.

The Coffee Shop has 6 tables outdoors and inside the premises is still functioning a device to roast coffee over wood that goes back to 1948.
