5.0 out of 5 stars Handy, comprehensive, and great photos too! December 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How to Order an Italian Coffee in Italy is a short, handy guide for anyone curious about how to maneuver through one of the most important daily interactions in the Bel Paese -- with the barista at the bar.

Packed full of solid, reliable information (Sara has lived in Italy since 2003), this e-booklet explains all the different types of coffee drinks you'll find in Italy, and, incidentally, what you won't find -- no flavored syrups and creams! Best of all, it is well-illustrated with high-quality photos and the pronunciation guides will ensure you'll know exactly how to order your desired coffee in Italy -- or, at the very least, have the word(s) and possibly a photo to point to!

This booklet would be a fabulous gift for coffee lovers, Italophiles, or anyone headed to Italy -- there's just no better Italian coffee resource out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Coffee Guide for Travelers to Italy January 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are considering Italy in your future travels and enjoy coffee, do yourself a favor and download Sara Rosso's guide. I'm a B&B owner in the Italian wine country, and I have answered almost all of these questions in part or in full over the last seven years. But here it all is, in one place: how to act in an Italian coffee bar, how to order, what to order, how to pay, what to eat with your coffee. It's really perfect and I plan on advising my guests, when they reserve, to come and spend the three bucks to understand what the Italian coffee culture is all about! Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet July 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I live in Milan. I have been here for over a year. Im one of those used to have large cup of coffee.
However, once you here and those big cups are nowhere to be found, then you need to settle with smaller ones.

What I like about this book is that it goes straight to the point. It is a good companion to have in the bar while you are having the first coffee of the morning.

Simple and straight to the point. Like a good espresso.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect sneak peek into Italian Coffee Scene! May 17, 2012
By nehasf
Format:Kindle Edition
This snapshot into the Italian coffee scene does a great job capturing the ins and outs of ordering (and enjoying) coffee in Italy. It transported me back to the first time I stepped into an Italian cafe, ordered an espresso, and sat down to drink it. Everyone was staring at me with discomfort. If I had this lovely book, complete with photos and guides to pronunciation, I would have carried myself with a bit more Italian grace :) Bravo!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive
The information in this book is useful and from my travels in Italy I would say it is very accurate. However, I think the price is way too high for what you get.

All American baristi need to read this. Starbuck and Panera are biggest offenders of not getting it right. My barista niece got one as a gift from me - she loved it.

I wouldn't recommend it unless you hate google.
Nothing that you can easily find in Internet, and not very suitable for Kindle Reader

You could put this e-book together yourself with 10 minutes research on Wiki-pedia. Pictures are average and formatting is plain and the information provided limited and dull. Read more
