Heading to the home of black coffee? Here’s how to order like a local.
Italians have coffee drinking down to an art. Locals don’t hang around the average coffee shop nursing a syrupy concoction for hours, or grab coffee in a can on their way to work. Rather, they stride into a bar, stand at the counter and throw back “un caffè”. Seats were once taxed by law in Italy, hence the long-standing tradition of drinking coffee standing at a bar.
