I can't believe how good the coffee was in Italy. At home in the U.S. I buy freshly roasted beans from a small roaster, have a Techni-Vorn drip machine and grind my beans every day. I also have a cheap espresso maker. I can not come any where close to duplicating the coffee in Italy. What am I missing? In Venice and Tuscany his coffee was dark and rich with out any bitterness. Do they use different beans or machines or what? Thanks!
