BARISTA COURSE

In Italy, you can find bars at every corner of the city as an indispensable part of Italian daily life. Many people go to coffee bars several times a day; before going to work in the morning, for breakfast, during a break from work or study, to have a light meal, or to chat with friends bumped into on the street, etc. It´s said that there are as many as 150,000 bars in Italy, and almost all Italians have their favorite bar.

A quick stop at the bar counter and drinking espresso in one gulp this is the genuine Italian style. Most coffee bars in Italy are run by local individuals, and they’re ideal places for all Italians who love coffee and talking. You can always find bars filled with Italians talking with a cup of coffee in hand. At a bar, they do not only serve “Caffè”, “Macchiato” or “Cappuccino” but also cocktails, “panini” (sandwiches), sweets, ice-cream, as well as gifts, etc.
