The way one drinks one’s coffee, its size and the way one holds a cup and uses a spoon, those rituals were defined already in the 17th and the 18th century in the European royal courts. Coffee was drunk exclusively from porcelain cups that were slightly preheated so that the dark beverage would not get cold so quickly.
Coffee shops, places where only coffee beverages were served, were opened all over Europe and were becoming increasingly popular. They were the meeting points where the intellectuals and well established persons of the time discussed daily events over a cup of coffee.
Inspired by this precious beverage, an Englishwoman once said that tea time was at 5 o’clock, and coffee time was – always.
Everybody has their own ritual of making coffee, as well as their favorite coffee, from espresso, cappuccino and even coffee-based frappes. However, the point of drinking coffee is not merely in drinking it, but in those small rituals that take place over a cup of coffee – talking to friends and retelling daily events, sharing information and, above all, meeting friends and laughing.
Espresso is a magical beverage invented in Italy at the beginning of the 20th century. From the day one the beverage grew a cult of faithful fans. Therefore, a sophisticated ritual was developed to bring this dark beverage to perfection.
