Have a look at my favorite coffee when I visit the city of Ventimiglia, right across the border from France. It’s called an americano, which is more or less normal American coffee. They serve an expresso with hot water and hot milk in separate little pots so you can customize your cuppa. In my opinion, it is way more flavorful and rich than traditional filter coffee and definitely better than americanos from chains like Starbucks, et. al. (Not to mention the fact that I absolutely adore the stylish black cups they serve it in.) Try one and let me know!
