It may go without saying, but Italians are passionate about their coffee. Twenty-three year old Giacomo Vannelli, Italy’s 2014 Champion Baristi Caffetteria, will represent Italy at the World Barista Championship to be contested in Rimini, Italy in June. In March we enjoyed afternoon coffee and delicious pastries at the Vanelli family coffee/pastry shop in Camucia di Cortona, in the province of Arezzo. Good luck, Giacomo!
