Our series Around the World in 80 Cups by @jasonhuffnagle continues w/ Florence & Venice today on Barista Mag Online
Located in, and named after, the Cannaregio district in Venice, Cannaregio Torrefazione is an artisanal coffee roaster and has been a neighborhood mainstay since 1930. You will find it a bit off the touristy drag, therefore providing you some relief from the oft-crowded and winding streets. While in the area, you may want to visit the Campo di Ghetto Nuovo, one of the former Jewish quarters in Venice, which is just north of the café, and be sure to pop into one of the many bakeries offering pane azzimo —a delicate anise flatbread and a Venetian Jewish specialty. Just a 15-minute walk southeast of Cannaregio Torrefazione, and snaking through the city, is the Grand Canal, which is crossed by the white stone Rialto Bridge, the canal’s oldest and most famous bridge.
