Italians take great pride in the art of making coffee. Two years ago during a Tavola Tours trip to Calabria, our guests got to learn first hand all about the great coffee culture of Italy. Calabria however, is the southernmost region of Italy. It is known as the “toe of the boot” and the very end of this region is about six miles (263 km) across the Strait of Messina to Sicily. As you travel south in Italy the coffee generally gets stronger and people tend to like it sweeter and add more sugar to their coffee. Coffea Italia is a remarkable coffee company located in Santa Maria del Cedro in the province of Cosenza. They take great pride in offering the very best blends of coffee and elevating the area’s already excellent coffee culture to an even higher level of excellence.
The company also runs a coffee school where they educate their customers with classes on coffee and even classes on coffee art. If you ever tried to make a decorative pattern on top of your cappuccino you know how difficult it can be. Coffea Italia’s classes are run by true coffee professionals that will not only teach you all about Italian coffee, but they will share with you some secrets of decorative coffee art that you can use to impress your friends and family with. You can follow them here on their Facebook page to learn more about the coffee courses and coffee art.
Here is a Christmas coffee commercial with friends from Caffè Marodda and Coffea Italia in Santa Maria del Cedro. Chef Franco and Joan added their touch of Christmas cheer as they enjoyed a perfect espresso. ☕️🌟🎄
