Starting as a commercial espresso machine showroom, La Prima Espresso Company has transformed into a full-service espresso bar that is now a favorite of locals and tourists alike.
Located in Pittsburgh’s Strip District, La Prima’s quaint and unassuming storefront has been said to be reminiscent of cafés in Italy, offering outside seating in the form of sidewalk tables and chairs. When you walk in, you’ll find a simply adorned space filled with the wondrous aromas of freshly made coffee. The team behind the counter is always swift and focused, cranking out delicious drinks at an incredible speed.
A simple and straightforward menu provides guests with classic espresso options as well as filtered coffee and cold brew. Each drink is handcrafted with care to produce the best cup of coffee and, if you order a latte, be sure to take a moment to appreciate the art that’s featured on top. For those looking to enjoy something other than coffee, the café also has a variety of bottled beverages along with a wide selection of hot teas and freshly squeezed orange juice.
If you’re hungry, La Prima offers pastries and small bites to snack on.
Organic and Fair Trade
As a certified organic roaster, La Prima hand-roasts coffee beans in small batches to allow each flavor to fully develop. Many of their coffees are also fair trade certified and can be purchased online or at any of their three locations. And, with their wholesale program, you can now find La Prima coffees in establishments across the United States!
During the week, doors open at 6am, which means that you can grab your favorite cup of coffee before you start your day. For residents of our apartment community, you’re just a short walk away!
