Martina Franca

Bar Ardua

Work, tradition and passion: these are the characteristics that make Bar Adua a milestone in coffee in Martina Franca. His story begins back in 1936. To retrace his birth and growth there are the grandchildren of Leonardo Campobello, patron of Adua coffee: Laura, Donato and Leonardo. In their eyes and in their hands the passion inherited from grandfather Leonardo shines through and tell us how their adventure began.

Since then, for all the years to come, they have dealt with their coffee. Now in 2014, the Adua Bar remains in its historical location and continues to churn out bocconotti, coffee slushes, almond milk, artisan ice cream. In the industriousness of Leonardo, Donato and Laura there is a bit of innovation that mixes well with tradition. This is demonstrated by the fact that, even today, almond paste is processed by hand. There are no machines that replace the hands of expert pastry chefs. On the other hand, even if a click today facilitates production, it can never replace the experience and the history that defines a quality product. The history of Adua Bar is a story like many others that tells a laborious Martina, who treasures the past to look to the future.
