Lost in Brescia

May 27, 2010

Imagine, if you will, a bar. Not the kind of bar that you seen in the movies, and certainly not your average English pub either.

Rather, you should imagine the kind of bar that gave rise to the word ‘barista’: the kind of Italian bar where they take some pride in making quite a good cup of coffee – thought they’ll have you hanged, drawn and quartered should you order a cappuccino after noon. Or they might not, but they’re more likely than not to let you know that you are, as it were, doing it wrong.
