Pergamino Caffe review image

Pergamino Caffe

$$$$

Rome is certainly an espresso-driven city and quick shots of coffee consumed on the fly are the standard throughout town, but a number of serious modern coffee shops have popped up recently. Pergamino Caffè near the Vatican serves Aeropress, syphon, and nitro coffee brewed from a small roaster focused on mono origin beans. For traditional coffee drinkers, there’s espresso and its various milk-based incarnations, too, though the quality of the coffee used at Pergamino is a cut above the industrial brands that dominate the city’s cafes.
