Coffee Talk: Cappuccino vs Espresso

As I mentioned earlier this week, when one is visiting the Land of Espresso (aka Italy) it is hard not to imbibe in a cappuccino or twelve. If you do find yourself visiting Italy (and I highly recommend it) and want to blend in with the locals in the cafe, the key is to never order a cappuccino after 12pm. After that, espresso is king. However, don’t panic. Italian espresso is much smoother and milder than its American counterpart. And if you really need milk, you can always ask for a splash.
