I’ve got high hopes for the quality of coffee in Italy because, so far, Melbourne is far and away the best coffee city compared with Paris, Strasbourg and what I’ve seen in Germany.
Decent espresso’s aren’t impossible to find but I’ve yet to have a decent milk coffee anywhere in Europe. Macchiato, Latte, Cappuccino – they’re all bad here as best I can tell. And even the espresso’s in Melbourne are consistently better.
I’m sure Italy will be better!
