I know there are a lot of caffeine addicts reading this post – “caffeinated blogger, writer, mother, father,” etc., I read the descriptions in the profiles of blogs and social media pages. So tell the truth, how far are you willing to go for a great cup of coffee?
While I’m not a habitual coffee drinker, I’ve been known to drive six miles or more for a good cup of java.
In the U.S., Starbucks has become synonymous with coffee. You’ll often hear someone say, “I need a Starbucks.”
Personally, I do not understand how anyone who has ever had an Italian coffee could enjoy Starbucks.
I don’t claim to be an expert. I’ve already told you I’m not even a habitual coffee drinker. What I know is a good coffee should be smooth and not biting on your tongue. It should be the correct temperature not too hot, not too cold, and it should smell good.
I know of one place in the Dallas area that has real Italian coffee. They use only Segafredo Zanetti coffee from Italy. It’s twenty miles from my house, but I swear it’s worth it. I’ll even set up business meetings there just so I can get a great cappuccino.
I took this photograph outside one of my favorite bars in Rome. It’s not really near where I stayed when I was there, but they consistently make a nice frothy cappuccino – totally worth a twenty minute walk. Besides, walking in Rome is one of lifes great pleasures. Can you imagine how early I had to wake up to take this photograph?
Admittedly, I’m crazy for anything Italian, but I’ve also had delicious coffee in Spain, Mexico, and probably some places I can not recall at the moment.
So tell me, how far will you go, literally or figuratively, for a good cup of coffee?
