PROPER Italian coffee
Here at Danieli, we prefer our coffee beans to be dark and robust. Many cafes are switching over to a medium roast coffee, so if you always find yourself asking for an extra shot then that may be the reason why. Great Italian coffee lives and dies by its beans, with the perfectly rich yet smooth espresso as the starting point for every cup.
We grind our beans to order and make all of our coffees with care on our lovely old manual machine. Just the right amount of acidity counterbalances the rich dark roast and allows the character of the coffee to shine through. The way it was meant to. Whether that’s the wake up call of a bold yet smooth espresso, the simple comfort of a long milky latte, or a silky smooth cappuccino.
Did you know that Italians don’t put chocolate on top of a cappuccino? That’s why we always ask.
Don’t do dairy? Not a problem. We have oat, almond and soya alt-milks at the ready…
Handmade Sicilian Cakes
Our pasta di mandorle are Richmond’s best kept secret. Sssh!
These little Sicilian cakes are a bit of a national obsession in Carlo’s birthplace of Randazzo, Sicily. So, when we were looking for just the right product to expand our range, he declared ‘let’s make our own!’. And so began another local institution.
Using the finest nuts grown by two brothers in Bronte, Sicily, Carlo set out to do just that. You may have seen him through the shop window, labouring away in a cloud of icing sugar. After a few comedy attempts and a lot of taste testing we now produce 1,000 of these authentic Sicilian treats every week.
The original pasta di mandorle are made with almonds, but we also have pistachio, walnut, and hazelnut versions too. More of a biscuit than a cake, these little cakes are just the right size when you want something sweet to go with your coffee.
We also have some of the best pandoro and panettone you have ever tasted. Enjoy a slice with a coffee or thick hot chocolate, or just wolf it down on the way to work. We won’t tell. And then, when you can’t stop thinking about it, come back for a gift-wrapped, beautifully be-ribboned whole.
