Via Nazario Sauro 20, Fano, Italy
In Fano (Italy), there is a bar where the fishermen used to meet before starting their working day. In this part of Italy, winter days can be cold, foggy and extremely humid. Starting to work at 3am in the morning, the fishermen need to stay awake and warm for long hours. Here is where “moretta” comes into play. In a small glass, a layer of a “secret” alcoholic mix (cognac, rum, anisette… no one will ever tell you the exact recipe) is heated with the steam of the espresso machine. One shot of espresso and a small piece of lemon skin complete the masterpiece. Moretta is the quintessential digestive coffee, a true delight for every occasion (you don’t need to wake up at 3am in the morning to truly enjoy it).
