Default Italian and Cuban Coffee

Does anyone know of a good place to order some coffee from Italy? I was in Italy a number of years ago and it was by far the best coffee I have ever had and would like to get some for home. Iíve also heard Cuban coffee is good but have never had it, and am interested in buying some to try. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

All the big Italian brands of coffee are sold in the US like Illy, Lavazza, etc... Cuban brands like Cubita & Serrano are available online. Just look up the names.

That being said, I don't think they offer really anything different than brands you can already buy. It's more about how the coffee is prepared which you were enjoying more in Italy.

Thank you for the info. I have had Lavazza and itís delicious. I might have to buy some of the brands you suggested and try a different way of preparing it.

My wife's aunts were born in Cuba. They both use one of these types of espresso makers to make their Cuban coffee. The brand of coffee is not so critical to them, just that it's a good quality and an espresso grind.

A Neapolitan coffee pot is a fun way to make coffee. Very uncommon coffee pot in the US. Different than a Mokapot. Very particular to the Naples region of Italy.

Mokapot is the style. Also called stove top espresso maker. Bialeti is the most common brand.

Neapolitan is similar but quite different in how it's brewed.
