If a good morning depends on a good breakfast, you will never have a bad day in Turin (Torino). An excellent espresso, cappuccino or Moroccan coffee, accompanied by fresh brioches, in one of the many bars and cafes in the city centre is certainly a moment to savour, and it soon becomes a habit. Here, long time ago, the cappuccino born by a vitiated king and the famous Lavazza brand of coffee originates from Turin (Torino). It was produced in the old city centre, in a grocery shop that is now a modern café and restaurant, where you can sample the coffee in many different forms. Turin (Torino) is the city of historical cafes, where men of culture, politicians and noble ladies would meet in the 1800s. Today, they are still a part of Turinese custom and culture, a must for visitors who wish to taste the specialities of subalpine confectionery in an atmosphere of bygone days.

In every bar of the city, cappucino is around 1,20 euro, Espresso coffee 80 cents.

Don't pay more!

PS: there i an other thing that u have to know abt the importance of coffe for an italian: there is NOT any starbucks coffee shop in Italia.

Also coz in italy we don't like to wait more than 60 seconds to have an espresso (espresso means "fast"!!) between order it and pay for it.

We just like to enter in a bar, scream loud "One Espresso!", put one coin on the bar and drink. All this, take abt 25, 35 seconds.. :-))

..but i have to say that i love starbucks coffee!
