Caffe

22 08 2009

Plenty of espresso to be had in Italy. Both the hotels we’ve stayed at have had a pretty sweet machine and grinder setup.
I’ve noticed that the shots are usually great. Strong dark roast and very golden brown crema. But they don’t seem as concerned with the milk. Lots of bubbles on occasions, even too hot once. Definitely no latte art!
The best coffee we had was in a street cafe, mainly filled with locals. Mostly been having cappuccino and macchiato.
Will try to get some photos.





Italy is tiring

22 08 2009

Been having an awesome time on holidays so far. We’ve spent 3 nights in Rome and we arrived today in Florence.
So much to see in Rome and we got around most places by foot, so it is pretty exhausting. It’s also been 36-40 degrees each day as Italy swelters in a heat wave. Very draining.
Unfortunately, I’ve come down sick. Blocked sinus, sore throat, cough. Hope it goes away soon.
