Café Livanto

Who says a café has to be made of bricks and mortar? John Hasson’s is a 1973 Citroën HY van. Just before coming to Northern Ireland, it was used to ferry grape-pickers around a vineyard in the champagne region of Reims in France.

He had a van, next he had to find the right coffee. John says he’s always had a passion for the bean, so he visited a few roasters before finally settling on Bailies Coffee which is roasted in Belfast. The particular blend he uses is called Silvio Espresso, which is really smooth with a marzipan sweetness.
The name Livanto means “a well-rounded espresso”, but all of the coffee is made the Italian way, not just those little adrenaline shots of caffeine. To add to the Cafe Livanto experience he added a broad selection of Suki Teas, which are also blended in Belfast. To sweeten things up, he uses a local Ormeau Road bakery called Bread & Banjo for delicious cakes. After all, a drink’s too wet without something sweet, don’t you agree?
