I loved drinking cappuccino in Italy. Best coffee ever, even if I did sit down to enjoy it. :) Your article makes me wish I were doing that very thing at this moment.
I agree about drinking out of actual cups. I sometimes go to a Starbucks near my workplace for an espresso. Even though I stand and drink it quickly, I always want it in the china cup with saucer (if only they'd give a small spoon, too; for stirring in my sugar, I'm forced to use a "stir-stick"). The staff probably wonders why I don't take the paper cup, since I'm in and out so fast, but I don't care. It's absolutely not the same drinking espresso out of a paper cup!
May I say: Molto mi piace! That's probably wrong, but I meant "I like this very much!" Wonderful article, and the recipe is one I'll try soon -- I'm thinking, when I have leftover mashed potatoes after Thanksgiving. I love beans in any form, and I have oregano still hanging on in a pot on my patio, even though we're headed into winter here in the Midwest. Thank you for story and recipe.
I love my moka, too. I only got one about a year ago, I guess it was, and you would laugh, because I think I got the 12-cup one! It's because I drink mostly decaf coffee, I drink it out of regular American-sized cups, and I want several cups in the morning. All wrong, I know, but it's what I like. The bastardization of the moka. :)
