The unwritten coffee rules

Do not order a cappuccino after 11:00. The Cappuccino is only for breakfast and is considered bad for the digestion of heavier meals.

Drink you coffee at the bar. That is the way the locals do it and it’s cheaper because if you sit on a table, you have to pay for the service.

A coffee equals here to an espresso and is usually a strong one. If you prefer a softer coffee try an “caffè lungo” and if you want a stronger one then try an “ristretto”.
