Italian cuisine includes coffee after every meal
Whether it's after a multi-course lunch or a sandwich during a work break, traditional Italian cuisine includes the ritual of drinking an espresso after a meal.
Italians have a unique relationship with coffee, at any time of the day. Having a coffee together means enjoying a break during the day, and share it with colleagues and friends.
Coffee is exquisite not only as a beverage, but also as a spice, to give an original and unexpected touch to classic Italian dishes.
The bitter taste of coffee, whether green or roasted, can be paired with many ingredients, including capers, or counter more complex bittersweet dishes such as the traditional Sicilian caponata.
