On the 10th of May 1734 AD, legend has it that Charles of Borbone, ruler of Naples and King of Spain, before arriving in Naples stopped at the monastery of the Minimi Friars just outside Porta Capuana. He had the desire to taste the dark beverage with the robust and distinct aroma of which he had been told. This brew was rumored to possess certain properties that would strengthen both body and soul. The friars had gone to great lengths to prepare the beverage for the new king, for they wanted to please him.
It is believed that this was the period during which the Neapolitan style of preparing coffee was born.
Two hundred and fifty years later, as technology changed and has transformed how coffee is made, the passion and attentiveness to the preparation of real coffee in the Neapolitan way is better and more improved than ever. Neapolitans are still known for preparing the finest and richest tasting cup of espresso in the world.
