Caffè Torre dedicates to all coffee lovers a small collection of aphorisms and famous phrases about this delight for the palate! Let’s start with two quotations from Eduardo De Filippo, of which recur in these days 30 years after his death:

eduardo - questi fantasmi“…because the thick smoke of first coffee flowing – that is the strongest – is not lost and the whole room smells…. Caspita, chesto è cafè… È ciucculata… ou see how little it takes to make a man happy: a cup quietly taken out here … ”
Eduardo De Filippo, Questi fantasmi

“When I die, you bring me coffee, and you’ll see that I resurrected like Lazarus.”

Some older quotes:
