Italy Coffee

Coffee in Italy is consistent if nothing else. We Americans definitely have the creative market cornered compared to Italy, which is strictly traditional.
Amazingly, however, there is an espresso machine in every restaurant, trattoria, osteria and bar in Italy. Literally every place has one, and the espresso is pretty much exactly the same wherever you get it. The consistency is definitely amazing and the coffee is pretty good. I think adding a packet of sugar is the way to go for “un caffé” in Italy, too.
Here is a nice little macchiato I had at the Mercato Rialto a couple hours ago, and the espresso I had about a block down was also good. The Mercato is a must see thing of beauty, and get there by 7 AM to really appreciate the beauty!
