Wine Chat: "The Coffee Bean in the War Machine: Northern Italian Coffee Business between the World Wars” at Capitello Wines

This talk traces the business histories of Lavazza, Illy, and other major Northern Italian coffee companies to illustrate the surprising ways that early twentieth century espresso machine technology and caffé design came together to create the distinctive aromas and flavors that afficionados around the globe associate with Made in Italy coffees today.
