From timeless classics to modern independent coffee houses, there’s more than one way to enjoy your coffee, but all of them celebrate one of the world’s oldest and most complex drinks in style. For an experience where interior design, artistry, service, and quality combine, look no further than coffee. Greg Sunning reveals three great spots on our network where enjoying a coffee becomes a sublime experience.


Pasticceria Cova, Milan

The name may suggest cakes are Cova’s first love, but we think their classic Italian espresso is the perfect complement to their equally delectable patisseries. In Italy’s most stylish city is found one of its oldest cafés, in the heart of the fashion district – Cova celebrates 200 years in 2017.

Modern coffee explained

Enjoy a frothy cappuccino before midday, a milky latte at any time, a shorter flat white for a modern take, or an espresso to taste the essence of the bean. For a longer black coffee, opt for a pourover, an AeroPress for a brighter coffee, or a Chemex for a science experiment.
