The World in Coffee

If you’re into coffee, chances are one of your first actions of the day is to brew a big pot of it. While many profess to love coffee, in truth, most people are stuck in a rut of how to prepare it, and simply stick to the most convenient method, even if it produces mediocre results.

Thankfully, we’re here to tell you that you don’t have to be stuck drinking boring old drip coffee for the rest of your life. Here are a few ideas from around the world that will help you step up your coffee game.

Espresso – Italy

If you’ve never tried espresso, now is the time! Espresso is brewed by forcing almost-boiling water through finely ground and compressed coffee. Espresso is found all over the world, but many people argue the best in the world is found in Rome, Italy – a country that has perfected the art of drinking coffee.

There are two cafes in Rome renowned for their espresso – Café Tazza D’Oro, and Caffe Sant Eustachio, which are both located right downtown, steps from the historic Pantheon. Belly up to the counter and plunk down your euros for a shot of liquid gold. Then get out of the way, because these cafes are always packed.
