The espresso in Albania is of surprisingly high quality. It is one of the good things about being an ex-Italian colony. You see things like that a lot when you travel. English colonies tend to have great railways, see India, Egypt or Southern Africa. The French colonies usually have at least local bakeries that do nice baguettes. Germany didn't have a lot of colonies, but the ones they have and where I've been to, Namibia and parts of China (Tsingtoa) at least have excellent beer. And the Dutch, well, we had Indonesia for a good four hundred years, with great culinary consequences too: the best Indonesian food available in Europe is to be found in the Netherlands.
