Drink Coffee Like A Real Italian
Italians are masters in many highly respectable fields, one of which is the fine art of drinking coffee. Italy has left it’s mark on how coffee is drank, discussed and enjoyed throughout the world.
The Italians have created an entire science around brewing, ordering and drinking it. One of the oldest cafés in Europe is Caffé Florian, which opened in 1720, and still today brews coffee for Venetian locals.
Italy also introduced the espresso machine in 1884 the very first steam-pressure coffee machine that forever changed brewing as we know it. They also invented the Moka Pot in 1933, which is now standard in Italian homes.
Italians always start their morning out with a pastry and a coffee at their neighborhood café. Coffee is usually taken while standing up at the bar, mainly because a shoot of espresso takes just a few seconds to drink, venti iced frappucinos do not exist in Italy. Bars also tend to charge more if you get your coffee seated at one of their tables.
Upon walking in, locate the cashier, order your coffee and make sure to keep your bill, which must be given to the bartender. Feel free to tell the bartender exactly how you would like your coffee and which cup you would like to drink it in. Don’t be shy to have specific requirements, Italians are well-known for being picky with their coffee orders.
Italian coffee is brewed based on a very precise science that results in fragrant blends. The beans are delicately roasted until they gain a rich brown hue and have a minimal amount of oil. They are then set aside to coil.
Coffee is a ritual in Italy that occurs multiple times a day, in the morning to power up your day, after lunch to help your food go down, and in the afternoon for a break.
It is usually served with a glass of water to cleanse your palate both before and after, and other than a few words shared with the bartender, Italians don’t stick around too long. It is customary to leave a few coins as a tip for the barista.
