Breakfast and coffee

The coffee served at Ridola is provided by Pierre Café, a coffee roaster from Gravina, a town just a few kilometers from Matera. Our coffee is a blend of 70% Brazilian Arabica and 30% Indian Robusta.

The raw coffee is roasted every Wednesday, so you’re always drinking fresh roasted coffee.
