Product Review: Di Bella Coffee

On my return from my recent trip to Italy, I have a newfound appreciation for the more balanced coffees that the Italians seem to favour, although they’re not as strong as the standard Sydney coffee. So when I popped into Macchiato cafe the other day, it was nice to find that the flat white I had ordered was smooth, quite well-rounded and balanced like the coffees I had grown accustomed to in Italy.
