Caffeine Trivia 7.26.11

Commandment #6 of the Ten Commandments of Il Culto del Caffe.

If it’s an airport or station bar or a tourist place where the barista screams “ticket” at thee, thou shalt, if thou can bear the ignominy, pay before thou consumest.

Thanks to my readers for pointing out that Commandment #6 was inadvertently missing! Apologies.

Commandment #9 of the Ten Commandments of Il Culto del Caffe.

Thou shall be allowed the following variations, and these only, from the Holy Trinity of caffe, cappuccino and caffe latte: caffe macchiato or latte macchiato – an espresso with a dash of milk or a hot milk with a dash of coffee (remember, mornings only); caffe corretto: the Italian builder’s early-morning pick-me-up, an espresso “corrected” with a slug of brandy or grappa; and caffe freddo or cappuccino freddo (iced espresso or cappuccino) – but beware, this usually comes pre-sugared.

Commandment #8 of the Ten Commandments of Il Culto del Caffe.

Thou shouldst expect thy coffee to arrive at a temperature at which it can be downed immediately as per the previous commandment. If thou preferest burning thy lips and tongue or blowing the froth off thy cappuccino in a vain attempt to cool it down, thou shouldst ask for un caffe bollente.
