Third-wave coffee—the movement to change the public's sense of coffee from common hot beverage to valued and nuanced culinary commodity like wine—has arrived in Florence
in the form of Ditta Artigianale. Three locations of the trendy spot have been launched so far, the latest inside the historic Cinema la Compagnia. Grab a table and order a single-estate Chemex pour-over and a flaky pastry or, if you are craving a more substantial breakfast, opt for a croque monsieur or pancakes. Open from early morning until after dinner, the Ditta Artigianale cafés, with midcentury decor, great coffee, all-day dining, cocktails, and free Wi-Fi, have quickly become a beloved brand.
