I recently had espresso at a friend's place. It was really good, so I asked her for the brand of coffee (I had noticed it came ground for espresso, in a vacuum brick.). It's Lavazza, Qualitą Rossa. It's a lovely, medium roast from Italy. I'm really enjoying it. In fact, I'm having an ice café au lait right now.

I like coffee black. French or Italian roast or similar dark roast. Often Starbucks, but Millstone, Van Houtte or other (whole bean) brand sold in grocery stores will do. I like to grind my own. DH finds the whole bean dark roasts to oily :( I have begun buying Kirkland signature pre ground in a can for him.....yuk! No flavor to me. I occasionally enjoy a double shot latte with just a splash of hazelnut flavor either hot or in ice. :)

It must have been a very noisy neighbourhood I imagine ;)

I live in Greece, but I call it turkish coffee at home.
When outside and I order coffee I am carefull beacuse Greeks are very sensitive on the subject of Turkish or Greek coffee.
I understand history and political differences but i do not understand transfering the same to food and drinks.

I love food and coffee and I do not care what they call it as long as I can have it and enjoy ;)

It is like moussaka, Turks and Greeks are still fighting over the name, and if you read carefuly it is obvious that moussaka is a persian dish.

In fact original Turkish coffee is very sweet ...but I do not like having sugar in my coffee and tea

I drink both black but have to have two tsp of sugar in my espresso. And a dash of Zambucca if I have it.
