+Helen Luce That's how long the "video" lasted.  My time watching it was wasted. It was a device to enrich someone else and based on the pretense of getting a discount.

Thanks for your congratulation.  I hope you didn't struggle at great length as to which comment was more American, mine or my mother's.  (Of course since you added yours for a total of three, you may want to renew your evaluation.)

I enjoy coffee brewed in a variety of ways, most often as a morning espresso. (or two) I believe from research and experience that the process of making a really good cup can only be measured up to a point after which it becomes art.  I came across this video as a result of my never ending caffeine-fueled search for more insight to that artistry, and few would disagree that Italy has a well deserved reputation for loving coffee and elevating the art of brewing it.

With your response in mind I listened again to the video several times to see if it still evoked the same feelings in me.  Maybe I was just in a pissy mood that day and the video found my last unabraded nerve, right?

"...full of do's and don'ts."
A bit regimental, but perhaps a good start.

#1: “First and foremost, there is no ‘to go coffee’.”  “...are you crazy?” 

Um, OK.  I can deal with it.


#2: “...big, BIG no..” (regional, actually) “..cappuccino after breakfast time.”  “...at ten o’clock at night, right before you go to bed?”

Got it.  Breakfast ends at nine pm in Italy.  I didn't know that.


#3: “...espresso is 24/7, 365.”

Now you have my attention!


#4: “.. instead of dishwasher water, which is like American coffee…”

Unless made with Bialetti products http://www.bialetti.com/ purchased in the U.S., of course.


#5: Latte is the Italian word for milk.  If you order a latte at a coffee bar in Italy, you’ll get a glass of it.

#6 & 7: Chef likes booze in his coffee countered by the caffeine .


So yeah, I was disappointed that what I thought would be a insight into the preparation of coffee turned out to a disjointed list of Chef Fabio’s turn ons and bummers.  But aside from that, I see red flags whenever someone presents a matter of personal preference or taste as the final word on the subject without offering the reasoning behind their conclusion. Regardless of their title or claim to authority.  

How American is that?

My wife and two children ate there May 2, 2015. I ordered this hamburger with cheddar: CLASSIC Choice of Cheese: American, Cheddar, Swiss, or Pepper Jack, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, NY Kaiser Roll (Kcal. 750) $13.25 Perhaps I'm naive, but when I see a hamburger priced over ten dollars (US), I envision something hot, juicy and beef flavored. I got a tepid 1/4 lb (?) pre-formed patty under a translucent slice of cheese with the lettuce, tomato and onion portions so small as to fit within the circumference of the bun. My wife reported the Beef on Weck as tasty but very salty. This from someone who nibbles the salt off a soft pretzel before eating it. The crusted haddock was a large enough portion that I got to finish a fair bit of it, and it was rather good. I suggest asking for descriptions and/or recommendations from the wait staff.

👍👍 I don't know where to begin. With the basics I suppose. We asked for a room with a view of the Eiffel tower and were given 2103, a room on the corner of the building that not only faced the Eiffel to the north but the Seine on the east. Not a panoramic view but spectacular nonetheless. The layout was very efficient. As the largest person in our family I'm the first to feel claustrophobic but never did here. We had a small dining table for four, couch, and an easy chair in the kitchen/living area. Unlike other hotel rooms with narrow paths for navigation, we could all move freely about without taking turns. The kitchen has a sink, full sized coffee maker, water heater, four burner electric stove, mid sized refrigerator, and dish washing machine. Liquid dish soap and machine tablets were supplied, as were pots, pans, utensils, cups, plates and cutlery. Filters for the coffee maker I purchased from one of the many little "bodegas" within easy walking distance. They also have a nice selection of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as packaged foods. Many restaurants to choose from of that's your preference and a McDonalds and Starbucks if you're from the US and get homesick. (We are and didn't!) The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. A special thanks to Myriam who checked us in and gave us a choice room.
