Italy is a popular vacation country, but besides pizza, Roman buildings, beautiful views and nice people, you can also drink a very good cup of coffee. The Italians are also very proud of their coffee, so it is definitely worth drinking coffee when you are in Italy. Even if you are not so fond of coffee it is best to try it here, then you can be sure that you will have a good start with good coffee. If you still don’t like it then at least you know you have tried really good coffee.

Drinking coffee while skiing in Italy

Are the Heuts snow chains already in the car and ready to go to Italy? Then don’t forget to take time to enjoy a nice cup of coffee once in a while during your winter sports in Italy. Italian coffee is known as one of the best coffees in the world, there is even fierce debate as to who invented making really good coffee. Nothing is better than drinking a nice hot cup of coffee during a very cold winter sport.

Italian coffees

Italians also know a lot of different coffee specialties. For example, in addition to the caffè (espresso), they also know the doppio (double espresso). They have different coffee specialties with milk such as the cappuccino and latte macchiato. There is something for everyone and we also definitely recommend trying as many different Italian coffee specialties as possible when in Italy.

Italians and their coffee rules

You may have heard it before, but it is not done in Italy to order coffee with milk after 11:00. In the most touristy places, you can still get it, but really, you can’t. Italians have more of these coffee rules, for example, you may not call an espresso, an espresso, but a caffè or a caffè espresso these drinks are always exactly one sip in size. In addition, as a rule, you drink your coffee standing up (of course, with such small cups, it’s not worth sitting down elaborately either). Do you get a glass of water with your coffee? Then take the water first and drink the coffee afterwards, otherwise you insult the person who made your coffee.

This just goes to show how seriously Italians take their coffee. This is then noticeable, because the coffee you can get in Italy is often very cheap and of very good quality.
