Centro – For coffee lovers

This coffee shop is a place where I had the chance to learn about coffee while also tasting it. It’s a cafe that offers a huge list of possibilities for every cup, including blends by multiple “authors”.

My first time there was overwhelming. There are so many decisions that needed to be taken… First: I had to choose the mix from a list of five authors, with everyone having a different taste from strong to light. After I made my first decision, I had to take the next one: the brewing method.

Here there’s a longer list of eight different options: from aeropress to cold brew and Japanese siphon, from traditional to innovative. With the mix and the brewing method there comes the third choice: the preparation. This list is shorter, popular and easier: cappuccino, espresso, latte, etc.

I never felt alone while taking this decisions, because I did ask the staff a lot of questions — every member of the team knows the menu from inside out.

Lately, I actually ask for a cup of tea to avoid all the decisions involved in the coffee stuff. 

I go to Centro every time I need to write or to be alone. Just for the record, I wrote a huge part of my first book there.
