I have a research question. If I have a character in 1979 who is about 20 and has spent a few years wandering around Europe, could he reasonably be expected to have learned how to make foofy coffee drinks and other fancy beverages? I know they weren't big here yet, but surely they've been making them in Italy forever? And if so, what drinks could he have learned how to make, that he could reasonably successfully reproduce in America (without spending gazillion dollars on imported coffee machinery)?
Any help on this will be much appreciated, and may contribute to a new story for the next Aqua Erotica anthology. Which, I reiterate, I'm not editing because they can't afford me. I don't think they're doing an open call either, but if one of you has something already written that they really want to show them, I might be able to pass it along. No guarantees that they'll look at it, though, so please don't write anything new for it. I think they're mostly relying on solicited work.
