Caffe’, anyone?

Where does the name “mokka” come from, and what does it mean in Italian? Until what time can you drink a cappuccino in Italy without Italians finding it strange? Who drinks caffe’ in vetro? These were some of the themes of yesterday’s Coffee Workshop, one of a series of workshops sponsored by the Umbra Institute not only to give students hands- (and mouths-) on experience with various Italian foods, but also to teach their “cultural significance.” And heck, who doesn’t like a good cup o’ Joe? The workshops continue next week with cheese!
