Coffee in Italy

.
Well, Italy is not only art. When you hear about italian food you, in particular, neapolitan food, you imagine pasta and pizza, and maybe it gets a little boring and cliché.

So, here comes the coffee time.

When we just order a coffee in Italy, they will give you an espresso (you don't have to say you want an espresso, it is like they know coffee = espresso) but if you want another type of coffee you can choose among:

- Caffè (espresso 100% coffee - concentrate flavour, small amount of water and strong flavour, served in a little cup)

- (Caffè) Latte Machiato - (90% milk and 10 % coffee. They serve this one on a glass)

- (Caffè) Machiato (95% coffee and 5% milk, the cup has the same size as the espresso)

- Cappucino (50%coffee and 50 % milk with milk foam)

- (Caffè) RIstretto, lungo, doppio (Ristretto is less strong than espresso. Lungo has more water and doppio has the double amount of coffee and water than espresso)

- Caffè Latte (50% coffee, 50% milk)

- Caffè d'orzo (actually is not a coffee because orzo is a caffeine-free roasted grain beverage made from ground barley with the same size as the espresso)

- Decaffeinato (decaffeinated)

They can ask you if you want it "zuccherato" which means they can add it a sugar cream.

There are more types of coffee but these are the basics.
However, if you order for a cappuccino after a meal, you are going to do it wrong. Why? In Italy, people consider milk should be taken in the morning, not after meals with a full stomach. So, if you are going to order a coffee, you should not order a cappuccino, latte macchiato or similar, just a coffee (espresso) or a macchiato.
