E così hai anche la tazza per femminucce.....e per Robert sarà azzurra? ;-)) dal sud un bacione.

Good coffee is essential - it took about 6 months of trials to find a decent ground coffee when we moved over here!

Caffettiera

I just adored this post. Coffee is the heart of each Italian home, no matter how far away.

Simona, io non vivo senza caffe", e per di piu' solo Lavazza. Mi piace il caffe' di Blue Bottle pero' non lo trovo facilmente.

Simona Carini

Ciao Marta. No, non ho una tazza azzurra per Robert, ma abbiamo comunque un set di tazze da te' che una mia amica ci ha fatto fare per il matrimonio con i nostri soprannomi e certe caratteristiche. Il piattino della mia tazza e' quello con la fetta di panettone. Uno di questi giorni faccio vedere anche la tazza. Buon soggiorno al sud.

I agree with you Alicia. I learned to drink tea the first time I spent a month in London, years ago, because I could not get good coffee. If good coffee is not available, I prefer to go coffee-less.

Ciao Caffettiera. Indeed, and the moka pot is an important element. You can find them in the US, but not the one-cup version (long story), so ours comes from Italy. And my husband's espresso machine is also Italian.

Ciao Laura. Il Blue Bottle e' buono. A Oakland lo vendono al mercato di Temescal la domenica mattina, pero' onestamente non l'ho mai comprato li' perche' c'e' sempre una fila lunghissima per bere il caffe'. Il posto piu' vicino a noi e' Peaberry's, dentro Market Hall. Proprio la scorsa settimana ho scoperto che la proprietaria ha venduto qualche mese fa a tre ragazzi e ora si chiama Highwire Coffee. Vedremo quello che succede.

I have one of those little wands to froth milk, but haven't used it... my sister gave it to me for Christmas several years ago! Thanks for a lovely post about coffee.

Simona Carini

Hi Ruhama. It's actually fun to use it and see the milk froth. I am glad you enjoyed the post.
