Coffee with a story
Genoa history recounts Torrefazione Fratelli Boasi as the only shop that was allowed to sell coffee during the steep rationing that occurred during the Second World War (can you even imagine the lines that must have wound down this tiny alley??) - and more than sixty years later, you can still buy delicious coffee in this small shop. If you like chocolate with your espresso, you can also snag some delicious sweet treats (I am partial to any combination of milk chocolate and hazelnuts, but feel free to go wild) inside this tiny historical store.
