The Caferama, Badilatti`s own coffee-museum, offers a fascinating introduction into the world of coffee. The visitor learns all about coffee-production and coffee-trade and we show how the coffee bean found its way to the Engadine valley to be roasted in a pure alpine climate.
As a visitor one gains an insight into the cultivation and processing of coffee as well as into the daily work of the people involved. A whole section of the museum is dedicated to the coffee trade and its evolution and shows the importance of coffee in todays world.
Historical photographs and paintings show the social role of coffee over the last centuries and on display are various old coffee-roasters and antique coffee-mills as well as modern and automatic coffee machines of today. You will learn all about the evolution of the coffee roasting process and about the incredible variety of the coffee plant. A section of the exebition shows also the use of surrogate products, for example chicory and how soluble or decaffeinated coffee is obtained.
At our small but stylish bar you can enjoy a good cup of freshly roasted coffee and take a souvenir home from our well-stocked shop.
