Coffee

Since I am spending the day at Baresso, I had a sudden urge to research espresso-based beverages.

Latte tastes good, but I can’t deal with all that hot milk after a meal. Pure espresso is good, but can be a bit strong, and you have to drink it right away, so not much sipping enjoyment. I just had a beautifully decorated Cappuccino, but I think that next time I’m going to try the Macchiato.

Speaking of coffee shops, now that Denmark has recently imported neo-puritanism and intelligent design, how about also importing smoking bans in public places?

I can recommend Cortado's then - most coffee shops have them as well: http://www.pinds.com/blog/one-entry?entry%5fid=40751 /n

Excellent point, thanks for the tip. I think I even had that as my regular drink when I was in Buenos Aires, but had since forgotten. It looks remarkably close to the Macchiato. All those great coffee drinks out there.

There's a lot of coffee trivia in the latest Grisham novel, The Broker. An average (i.e. not bad) Grisham piece, but includes interesting facts, like that Italians never drink cappuccino after lunch, for the exact reason you mentioned for latte. Well worth the €10 for the paperback. Hmmmm...now I only gotta learn to drink coffee.
