The “Caffe Marinario” comes from an ancient tradition. In fact, it s a typical beverage coming from the sea-tradition. The coffee is prepared in a unique way, it is used as a digestive beverage at the end of the meal or to make winter days less cold. Caffe Marinario's history can be traced back in time and it comes from the sea-tradition. During winter time it was common to prepare this special beverage directly on the boats. The uniqueness of this coffee was reached by adding to the coffee different types off alcoholic beverages, that were always available on the boats. Most common alcoholic beverages were rum and aniseed-flavored distillates.
Nowadays it is still possible to taste this special “Caffè del marinario” thanks to its great popularity among the sea-tradition lovers.

Our coffee is prepared with rum and species, it is left to macerate for one night and served heated together with homemade “cantucci”.

Everyone knows the “cantucci”, also knows as “ poor sweets”. They are dry cookies prepared in different way, typically with almond and nuts, bread pasta with oil and anise seeds. The gastronomic sweets tradition combines “cantucci” with “vin santo” or liquors wines in general. However they are ideal also together with dry wines such as spumanti.

In the past, and still nowadays, the hub was asked to prepare the last coffee before returning to their homeland. After many days on the sea, stocks were a few and the hub had to prepare the coffee only with available ingredients.
