With a pleasent walk in the center of Florence we will discover the oldest bars in Italy, and we’ll see how some of them have started the waves of the Italian art and politics. Also we will discover the curious history of the coffee maker with a mustache, the most famous of Italy: the Moka pot.

We will learn also the codes of interaction between the barista and the italian clients, the many tricks of the barista and the frantic ritual of the Italian breakfast.

Then it will be the time to learn about the supreme protagonist: the coffee!20160708_152904
In a true Italian café we will follow the path of the golden beans. We will roast our own coffee (that we will take home) and, with an Italian trainer barista, we will learn the secrets of making the perfect espresso and cappuccino, until we will be able to realize our wonderful cappuccino with the heart.
