You say “coffee”, we say…

Some time ago we tasted a good cup of tea with Annie, and today…

… we’ve  decided to dedicate our lines to coffee, an Italian ritual.

All this thanks to Enrico, our follower, who sent us the header pic you can see here above from China. After a train ride from Shanghai, he got to Suzhou, where he was pleasantly impressed by how similar this Unesco heritage city is to Venice, Italy. Bridges, calles and canals, where lots of people walk and peculiar boats slide. What’s better than having an Italian espresso at a coffee bar in the Venice of the East (after having also visited a Venice of the North in this article)?

Italians like coffee at any time of day, at any place.

Whether it is a quick espresso at a coffee bar,

or with our family,

we believe there’s no better way to start our day.


Sure, it might happen that we get up on the wrong side of our bed, and it might seem  that things won’t go right,

however, a piece of chocolate together with our coffee will help our day start better!


Or we like to imagine ourselves enjoying a tropical breakfast,

or think back to our past summer holidays in California (USA), where we were sipping American filter coffee

Single or double, black or white, hot and fresh, wherever, whatever time it is… You say coffee, we say… ITALY! 😉
