The Coffee in Italy

For coffee drinkers, there’s little better than enjoying a coffee in Italy.

Just remember, Italian coffee isn’t like coffee in your local Starbucks.

From a regular “Caffè” to a cappuccino, a caffè macchiato to a caffè latte, coffee is ubiquitous in Italy but there is a considerable amount of regional difference.

Of all the coffee-crazy cities in Italy, Trieste has, by our humble reckonijng, the finest coffee and cafe culture.

Its long history as a tax-free port brought some of the first coffee beans to the city during Europe’s first coffee craze in the middle ages.

Today Italian coffee king Illy has its headquarters there and the city still imports many other brands as well.
