Caffè Cognetti

Roaster & cafe in Bari

Caffè Cognetti is a family run cafe and roastery near the centre of Bari. For many years a traditional Italian cafe, head roaster Davide Roveto discovered specialty coffee roasting after attending several courses and trips around the world. He began roasting specialty coffee on a small machine situated in the building next to the cafe.

The specialty coffee house blend is called "Hopera", in honour of the famous Petruzzelli Theater that lies in front of the cafe. You'll find all of Caffè Cognetti's specialty roasts available in-store as well as Italian cafe food and a selection of specialty teas and infusions.

In-store brew methods

  • Espresso?The iconic Italian espresso method uses a machine to force near-boiling water at high pressure through finely ground coffee and a portafilter.
    Espresso brewed coffee produces concentrated, rich flavours with crema on top.
  • Pour-over?The pour-over method uses a cone-shaped dripper with a paper filter. Near-boiling water is poured over medium-coarse ground coffee and passes through the paper filter. Different thicknesses of filter paper removes the coffee oils.
    Pour-over brewed coffee produces a cleaner taste with less bitterness.
  • Cold brew?The cold brew method involves steeping coarse-ground coffee in cool water for 12-hours or more. The brewed coffee is filtered and water is added before serving.
    Cold brewed coffee produces a flavour with less bitterness and acidity.
  • Syphon pot?The syphon pot method uses a two-chambered glass device, vapor pressure to brew as well as a metal filter. Medium-coarse coffee is used.
    Syphon pot brewed coffee produces full-bodied and heavier flavours.
