There may be no bigger symbol to being Italian than going for a coffee. Because (unfortunately) not everyone drives a Ferrari... But going for a coffee is something that knows no income, it is the ultimate social thing to do and imprinted into every Italian.
Caffè Terzi adds luxury and passion to something that seems like a small part of the day but in reality is a vital part of every Italian's life. However not all coffees are equal, and Caffè Terzi is the place to go to get the best coffee in Bologna.
Caffè Terzi is so small that you might miss it if you're not looking for it, this little shop is the Italian equivalent to an English tearoom, providing the very best available coffee to meet your every flavour and request.
They have certain coffee creations that push the limits of what you thought a coffee could and should be. They have the very simple, but wonderfully delicious: "Caffè con Cioccolato", espresso coffee with chocolate shavings; they shave some very high quality dark chocolate on a just made espresso and let the chocolate melt into the coffee. If that doesn't spark temptation perhaps the "Arancia e Amaretto" will: zest of an orange with the sweetness of amaretto in an espresso. They also have some more audacious recipes, for example the "Caffè alla Nocciola": a delicious hazelnut cream with espresso and chocolate shavings served in layers with the flavours mixing delicately into one another.
The fantastic array of choices however is not only limited to the coffee, they also offer many different types of "sweetener" instead of just normal sugar: they have a vast selection whether it be Acacia honey, Fructose sugar (sugar derived from fruit), Agave juice, Maple syrup and liquid cane sugar.
I however strongly suggest that the first time you allow them to suggest something to you and do not be afraid to experiment here, after all if it's on the menu it means it has been tried and tested and is excellent!
