The growth of multi national coffee chains has valued quantity over quality. Have we lost the real taste of coffee?

True Italian coffee is an espresso (not to be confused with the word 'Nespresso' - which is Nestles take on the word espresso and some clever marketing). The Italians do it best and this is why Nestle and other companies have copied the Italian coffee. If you want a bucket of coffee we all know where to go. 

A real Italian coffee is made from quality beans using 7 grams to produce a single espresso which the Italians drink on the go - no travel cups there!! Similarly a real cappuccino is a small cup, and a drink that should never be ordered in Italy after 11am !!  

When you travel to Italy and order an espresso you get a uniquely refreshing Italian drink, that has been imitated by millions throughout the world.
