If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you will know that I absolutely love traveling and Italy is a country very close to my heart. I had a wonderful time traveling the country for my 18th birthday and although, I wasn’t a big fan of espresso or even coffee back then, however I did appreciate a foamy latte macchiato, which by the way shouldn’t be confused with a caffè latte.
While caffee latte it’s all about the espresso, Latte Macchiato focuses on the milk and a creamy foam topping that beautifully balances out the strong Italian espresso. It’s a lovely drink and you can easily re-create it home.
You might not have the Italian backdrop, but Caffe Cagliari, a 100 year old Italian family company, now make coffee capsules which are compatible with Nespresso coffee machines, which means that you just have to practise your coffee pouring technique to perfect the typical milky layers.
Caffe Cagliari know everything there is to know about coffee: Ambrogio Cagliari opened his first coffee roasting and tasting shop in Modena, Italy, in 1909 and ever since the Cagliari family have passed on their expert knowledge and experience from generation to generation. They are what you would call a real family business. Alessandra Cagliari, Amborgio’s great great grand daughter, handles the marketing and packaging of Caffe Cagliari today and if you believe the Intalian Espresso National Institute (I.N.E.I) then you’re onto a winner, if you choose Caffe Cagliari, because they only certify the best espresso brands out there.
What’s your favourite coffee-based drink and where do you like to enjoy it?
