For coffee addicts: 6 espresso-based drinks

Some say Sheryl Sandberg will turn the role of women in society, especially at the workplace around. Some say the German economy needs Angela Merkel to be successful. Some say the world needs Barack Obama to achieve world peace ... Well, we cannot be too certain about these things but one thing is for sure: The more people wanting to drink amazing coffee, the bigger the rock star status of Baristas (coffee makers). In Australia these guys already decide on the survival and existence of Cafés and even people, who equip their massive entertainment kitchen with a Porsche like espresso machine, want to be like them and enroll in courses at a Coffee Academy to learn the art of coffee brewing. Who wants to alienate visitors with offering bad coffee? Wouldn’t that be worse than a bad hair day?

looks just about right

  1. Being Italian my favourite coffee drink is the classic espresso, black, short, strong and without sugar.

Greetings stranger. I always try to be myself and to be a tourist as often as I can. I would love to get in contact with lots of hard travelling tourists who love to be out and about as much as I do. I am looking forward to all your comments. Thanks so much in advance.
