Wake up and Smell the Coffee...in ROME

One of my favorite moments is tasting that FIRST CUP of Italian coffee, usually a caffe latte, when we land in Italy!

So many caffes, so little time! But I do have some favorites. I'm sure we'll be spending some time here, as our hotel is a block away.

I drink lattes all day long, not just in the morning!

I usually walk in, and ask them to find the largest glass they have (in Italian). I ask them for "un doppio caffe con latte macchiato."

When you become a "regular", the price goes down, sometimes from 2-3 Euro to 80 cents.

There are lots of great cafes in Rome! I did a taste test during our last visit between two famous places for coffee: Tazza D'Oro and Cafe Sant' Eustachio.

Sant' Eustachio was the winner for me! I will be stocking up on some of this:

Sometimes when walking around all day, you just need a break and a sweet bite.

After an afternoon nap, Brad is ready for wine, but I need to revive first with another jolt of caffine!

I have literally HUNDREDS of photos of cups of coffee in many regions of Italy, and I won't bore you with more, but it is truly one of my NON-guilty pleasures!

I'll be picturing you above, cup of coffee in hand and great happiness in your heart. Italy, "Get Ready!" Palma's on her way.
Buon Viaggio.

I'm a Tazza d'Oro fan myself but love Sant'Eustachio too! Have a fabulous time-I'll be sitting here living vicariously through your posts!

Mmmm! You're making me salivate for good coffee!!
I hardly ever drink it at home, but in Europe I have it a few times a day.
When do you leave for Italy? Have a wonderful time, both of you; as always!!
Love the poppy-flowered jacket you are wearing in the photo!

Oh, Palma, lucky you -- I'm envious, even though we just got back a week ago. I have been missing Italian coffee so much!
Have a terrific time (I know you will) and I'm looking forward to reading all about it!

Cool photos! I don't drink coffee but I LOVE stopping at a bar or pasticceria for something drink and a little bit to eat!

Wonderful photos, Palma! I love Italian coffee, and I'm already missing it like crazy!
