My vacation destination this summer is Italy. Am I excited? Of course I am! A few of the cities I’ll be visiting include Florence, Venice, Rome, and Pompeii. Most of all though, I’m curious to compare the coffee scene to America. Have any of you visited Italy before? What should I expect? I’m planning to stop at LOTS of coffeebars. I’ve been reading up on it and realize it’s totally different than here. We have completely Americanized the idea of coffee. Some sites I’ve read: Some basics about coffee in Italy. How to order coffee in Italy. I liked this site the most as it has some actual statistics on coffee consumption in Italy. A blog post about Italian coffee with LOTS OF PHOTOS.
