So now that the first edition of the Coffee Quiz has been posted, I realized it was time to get cracking on finding more willing subjects to share their habits on il caffè!
Next up is friend of Coffee in Italia and appassionato of coffee, Roberto Maucci! Roberto is a Roman Cimbali rep who we've come to know via his awesome Instagram account (follow him immediately!). He's got a great sense of humor and loves to connect with other coffee fiends. We're hoping to meet him IRL next time we make it to Rome.

Do you have any favorite facts or stories about coffee you'd like to share?
Before working for Cimbali when I was taking a coffee, I didn't even notice the presence of the grinder, now I control every step the barman takes and the condition of the coffee machine, knowing before drinking it if the espresso will be good or not XD
Do you have any projects that you'd like to highlight?
We are working on a big Coffee MUMAC Academy in Rome! Stay tuned!!!
