Between order and chaos there is espresso.

I cannot believe I paid less for my Bosco than for a small gas powered (albeit rare) home lever machine :shock:

That Marte somehow caught my eye more than the Faemina...

Today I stopped by an Autogrill on the Autostrada. My find is a coffee flavored coca cola. I did not try it but I am not suprised I found such a drink in Italy...

The Best Grocery Store Coffees, Ranked by a Barista
So to see if any of these coffees are actually good to the last drop, we asked Lorenzo Perkins, certified coffee instructor at Cuvée and executive council member of the Barista Guild of America, to put five of the biggest coffee brands through the same rigorous blind-tasting process that his roasting company applies to their own beans.

Aromas: Wet dog, burning
Flavors: Fish oil, despair

Cheers!

It is AMAZING what some of the Autogrills have in Italy! Good coffee in all and some incredible food in some! Some of them even have Markets that would put some specialty stores in the US to shame, all on the Autostrada (our interstate). I just wish folks here would learn to drive as well as they do in Europe!

We toured parts of England and quite a bit of the continent for three weeks on motorcycle many years ago. As I told a Highway Patrol officer here once, "Most Americans don't know the difference between an apex and an ashtray." And turn indicator use?!? It usually goes on long after the brake lights, and even then, they finally signal just as they are turning the wheel for the actual turn. Unencumbered by the thought process.

I've heard the urban legends about guests cooking crack in hotel coffee makers, but now there's credible evidence that guests are boiling their underwear in hotel kettles. (seen on another thread)

https://www.independent.co.uk/life-styl ... 09941.html

Sounds worse than the articles about not drinking coffee or hot water on an airplane because tests measured more bacteria in the hot water attributed to the holding tanks.

Do you know where your hot water's been?
