The Coffee Quiz ☕ Begins with Tina's Table!

We know we're not the only ones who love coffee but we started wondering what other people are drinking and how coffee is a part of their lives.  So we created a short questionnaire to find out what various folks are doing and thinking when it comes to their coffee rituals.  If you're interested in participating, let me know!

Our first interviewee is a favorite here at Coffee in Italia, Tina from the amazing blog Tina's Table!  Not so strangely in today's world, I got to know Tina via her Instagram feed which is always filled with gorgeous shots of the mouthwatering foods she prepares as well as markets around Italy and places she travels.

But it's the food that keeps you glued to your screen...I've decided I want to go live with her because you couldn't possibly eat better!  This recent post and recipe of hers looked like the perfect antidote to life here in the Northeast...when will winter end?  She's been living in Bologna since 2014 and you'll want to follow her immediately and sign up for her newsletter (conveniently on her homepage)!
