Episode 54: Coffee and alcohol: Two worlds combine

With the festive season well under way we thought now was the perfect time to indulge our minds in the exciting topic of coffee and alcohol and find out how these two beverages coexist seamlessly across different hospitality settings.

In conversations with Professor Jonathan Morris, Research Professor at Hertfordshire University, Michelle Cannone, Global Brand Director, Away from Home  and Mattia Pastori, Brand Ambassador at Lavazza, we explore alcohol's historical connection with coffee, the synergies between the two beverages and the tradition and global influence of the Italian Caffe Bar.
