Holy cow!!! Up to some years ago, every Italian family prepared the coffee with the moka (or with the more ancient version, the "napoletana").
Nowadays some of my compatriots have been badly corrupted and drink that strange potion known as instant-coffee, while others use some technologically advanced coffee machines, but I prefer to stick to the tradition and I'll never abandon my old, encrusted, loyal moka!

Come on, you couldn't ask someone how to say "leche y crema, por favor?"

Any company that is licensed to sell Kuerig products is prohibited from selling anything not owned or licensed by Keurig. For example, there are several types of K-cup type units where you can put in your own coffee and put it into a Keurig machine, but licensed distributors are only allowed to sell the My K-Cup unit.

No, the waiters at the cafe I went to during my lunch hour didn't speak English and after having it that way a few times I stuck with it.

Until I quit drinking recently, after dinner, Irish style with Bushmills. I finally broke the family curse, cold turkey. No more alcohol for me, ever.

PS- Lost 50 lbs since June 1st.

Fantastic! Great job on the diet even if it is at the expense of the Bushmills

How amazing ! well done you! With coffee itself there is evidence that coffee or caffeine may inhibit weight loss or contribute to weight gain in some people. Studies have shown that caffeine (as in coffee and some sodas) contributes to insulin resistance which makes it harder to loose weight!
