An espresso under the Caribbean sun
February 22nd, 2008

Segafredo Zanetti Espresso has recently opened its first café in Antigua, the main island of the Caribbean country of Antigua and Barbuda. It is the most developed and prosperous island due to its upscale tourism industry, offshore banking, internet gambling services and education services, including two medical schools.
At the end of April and beginning of May is the Antigua Sailing Week, an annual world-class regatta started in 1967, this event brings many sailing vessels and sailors to the island to play sports.
English Harbour on the south-eastern coast is famed for its protected shelter during violent storms and as the site of a restored British colonial naval station called "Nelson's Dockyard", in honour of Admiral Horatio Nelson who, in Battle of Trafalgar on 1805, with 27 ships against the enemy's 33, defeated the Napoleon's and Spanish fleet.
It is the only Georgian dockyard era still existing (and well preserved) in the world.
Today English Harbour and the neighbouring village of Falmouth are an internationally famous yachting and sailing destination and provisioning centre.
The Segafredo Zanetti Espresso café is located on Dockyard road, nestled between English Harbour and Falmouth Harbour, in the Anchorage Building. It is 350 sq. feet wide but it almost triples the total footage up to 800 Sq. feet with the 2 terraces: one internal and one on top of the café.
The location is a perfect spot for those heading onwords the famous dockyard. Thousands of tourists coming each year from all over the world will have the chance to taste an espresso Segafredo Zanetti in the warm Caribbean atmosphere.
