Pure coffee perfection

Casa Italia boasts of the freshest coffee in town with Coffee OTTO, a signature Casa Italia blend of 100% Arabica coffee carefully roasted the Venetian way by expert roasters who ensure precise timing and temperature throughout the process. Coffee OTTO operates on the principle that coffee beans must be consumed within 8 weeks from roasting to make sure that every cup captures the perfect aroma, smoothness and body that you can only enjoy in the freshest coffee.
