41 Coffees

Tuesday, September 27, 2011



Some people snap fun traveling feet shots, others like to remember their summer vacations by photos of beautiful surroundings but this handsome bearded fella is all about coffee. Last summer, Alan documented nearly all the coffees he had during his 21 days trip around Europe. He drank 41 cups of coffee in places like Barcelona and Milan. As a huge coffee fan, I'm totally loving this series:). Life is truly about those little simple pleasures, isn't it? Sweets,  how do you document your travels? xo

P.S: Have a coffee break in Italy.
P.S: French Press.

I have been thinking I really need a great camera to capture all these little moments in life! Gosh I wish I was sitting at a little cafe in italy right now...

I like a coffee shot too. And photos of buildings- and Mr TNMA!

Love my coffee! After a lifetime of using the Moka we have succumbed to the Nespresso machine. Consistent flavor, instant, easy and clean, but I do miss a nice caffè from la Moka here in the US. My mom is a die-hard Moka user. When she used to come to my house in Bergamo (three hours away form hers) she would bring her own Moka, her own coffee grounds (exclusively Kimbo) and still complain that the caffè never tasted right. Must have been the water! She's the same way about bread...some places just have better water and the bread is more fragrant. She's Italian like that!

Your mom sounds amazing, Josie and I agree about the water thing. We noticed that as well. Btw: I love the Moka. The taste is truly incredible and the aroma totally addictive.

What a cool idea! it reminds me of that song from rent talking about how you measure a year, and one of the lyrics is "in cups of coffee."

Liked your article about the history of coffee in Italy, too! You are a great writer.
