  1. Il mio caffè preferito è capuccino! A wonderful bit about the world’s most famous drink, espresso. Great job, Jane and Massimo! Molto grazie!

  2. Questa lezione mi ha piacuto moltissimo perche finalmente ho afferrato il significato di tutti quelli nomi di caffè.

    Grazie milla!

  3. Some time ago, my husband and I went to Harry’s Bar in Venezia, and I ordered “due caffe’ corretto”, and the waiter looked at me as if he didn’t undertand……is the Venetian dialect so different, or was he being rude? I finally said, “due caffe’ e’ due grappa”. I’ve never been back to Harry’s Bar, even though I’ve been to Venice many times…too touristy for me!


  4. The phrase, “Adesso, ho capito” translates as “Now, I understand”. Would it also be appropriate to respond with, “Adesso, io capisco”?
