​Bottega del Caffè

Genova
Covim
Just off a main thoroughfare of Via XX Settembre lies a rather non descript and apparently low profile bar, the kind you do not think to look twice at and certainly not with high expectations.
 
What we found here though is a local institution and hidden gem, whose coffee fully deserved the rarely awarded 3 “coffee beans” rating given to it by Gambero Rosso Bar d’Italia.

Bottega del Caffè is a very friendly ‘hole in the wall’ where you can grab a very tasty snack and a great espresso. The coffee of the house is the very respected local brand Covim, whose beans are also sold here at the counter to locals by the “etto” (Italian word for “100 grams”).
 
The La Cimbali machine looms like an altar above the café, with the barista standing uncharacteristically towards the customers handing espresso down to their waiters. With nowhere to sit this is a perfect place to have an unpretentious coffee of the highest quality, and then carry on with your day.

Bottega del Caffè, Via V Dicembre, 8/10, 16121 Genova.
