The single-origin, raw Arabica coffee beans used to produce the wonderful roasts available at Café Marcello are shipped to the Frankel Leó utca venue straight from El Salvador, a country whose high-altitude landscape, temperate climate, crystal clear waters, and volcanic soil help planters grow some of the world’s finest coffees.
