Where to have Coffee near Termini in Rome

During our honeymoon in Italy, my husband and I found Trombetta as an excellent Bar to enjoy coffee near Termini. It was lovely to slow down despite being in the busiest areas of Rome. As far as I’ve noticed, Italians begin their day quite early, so by 8 a.m. the place was packed with locals and we were usually the only tourists that time! My husband and I took the same brioche and macchiato every time and loved the whole drama of being in an Italian Bar!

There are so many tiny pleasures to describe.It brings wonderful memories!

The clink of glasses, the sound of the espresso machines, the animated discussions of the elderly…………the countless grazie and prego, the social niceties of buongiorno and scusate, the hard working barista and the oh so many delicious line of cornetti!!

My husband and I loved having coffee in Caffe Trombetta. A great place of having coffee near termini Rome
Happy in Trombetta

Going back in time

Incidentally, while writing this post I also recall that Trombetta was the first Italian Bar I ever set foot in 7 years ago!! I vividly remember because I bought a banana from the vendor outside Trombetta and went inside to have my first Italian coffee ever! I never realized it until now. Who would have thought that 7 years later I would be there again but this time with my husband 🙂

Buy Trombetta Coffee from home

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the world is a different place currently. All of us Italophiles wh can’t travel to Rome but dream of it every day can bookmark this post for future. And…..You can buy Trombetta coffee sitting at home. You don’t have to wait for a trip to Italy.

Trombetta produces excellent ground coffee, capsules and other coffee supplies! Their Trombetta Classico Deccaffeinato capsules are on Amazon. Also worth trying is the Trombetta Giusto Forte which is supposed to be another fabulous option for your moka pot needs!!

    Oh how I miss the sounds and chaos of Italian bars! Even as they start to reopen, I think it will be awhile before we can truly indulge in that type of experience. I’ve never been to Caffe Trombetta but I love the outdoor seating – I’ll have to check it out the next time I’m in Rome!

      The good part is the coffee to go! Something so out of comfort for the Italians, nice nevertheless. Hope you like Trombetta!

    I have not been to Caffe’ Trombetto, but love the name! I always seem to have luggage when i’m near Termini. Will have to stop in next time i go to Palazzo Massimo. From your photo it looks like it may be on the same street, a block away. The brioche looks yummy! Ciao, Cristina

    Oh Boy do we miss our fix of caffè at a bar, whether it’s in Rome or just down the road from our home in Tuscany. It’s difficult to see how Bars can be anything other than amongst the last things to re-open after Lockdown ends.

      I had a trip down the memory lane with my husband recently. We were going through old pictures and when I see these pictures, I thought of sharing about this wonderful Bar at Termini. Hope things get back to the new normal soon! I can imagine how hard it must be for you.

        Thanks. Looks like we may be moving towards a lift off date of around the 18th May???? Fingers crossed and fingers crossed that’s the right decision too.

    Love this. And great to know your can actually order this coffee on Amazon. Of course it’s not the same as being at Caffé Trombetta, but it’s the next best thing until we can return to Rome!
