  1. I’m also a real coffe addict (especially small napolitan coffee which are more explosive than the vesuve)

    In europs, we have alos illy coffee bar but all big italian brands have their own franchise.

    Kimbo coffee is also really good and less fashion

    Thanks for this moment of pure coffee product experience.
