Italians take special pride in their coffee. Like many of the French spend years or even decades finding the right perfume, Italians spend their lives perfecting the art of the perfect coffee. The machine, beans, grounds and blend are important, but the human touch is what makes the best coffee.
Anyway, which is better Lavazza or Illy?
Illy is perfect for you if you like the taste of your coffee more refined and smoother and you have more flexibility in your wallet. Lavazza is a good option for those with a modest budget who enjoy their coffee with a little more acidity and robustness of flavor.
Similar, what coffee do they drink in Italy? “Let's get a coffee!” Appropriate anytime, a caffè (or caffè normale) is simply an espresso, a small but strong shot of black coffee. Italians often sip a caffè as an afternoon pick-me-up or after a meal. To blend in: While you can order a caffè doppio for a double shot of espresso, this is not typical in Italy.
Beyond, is Italian coffee strong?
Coffee strength is simply the ratio of coffee beans to water. The more coffee or less water there is, the stronger it will be, that's it. ... Italian roasts are roasted longer, the longer coffee is roasted, the more that sweet flavors will start to taste more like dark chocolate, generally.
What makes Italian coffee different?
It has a higher acid content than drip coffee, and it has a thicker consistency. Italians drink espresso at all times of the day, and it is the most popular drink to order at a “bar” which means “coffee shop” in Italian.
