Pierre Cafè is a cafe located in the town of Gravina in Puglia, inland from Bari. Together with their family, the second generation roasters Luigi and Vincenzo Paternoster run and operate the cafe offering both their specialty roasted coffees named Son Of Coffee and high quality, traditional roasted coffee under the brand Pierre Cafè.
The cafe is a popular spot with the locals, who get a chance to enjoy high quality traditional Italian roasted coffees and also to experiment with the new flavours that Luigi Paternoster, three-time runner-up in the Italian Coffee Roasting Championship, brings with the specialty coffee micro roastery line.
Pierre Cafè is a 30-minute drive from the nearby town of Matera, a popular town to visit for its cave dwellings carved into the mountainside.
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.
- AeroPress?The AeroPress device functions like a syringe. Medium-coarse ground coffee is steeped in near-boiling water for a short period before the water is manually plunged through the coffee grounds and a thin paper filter.
AeroPress brewed coffee produces a smooth and clean flavour.
