Enough to know what the standard is. And I did mention that places that prepare quality coffee (or serve quality beer) can probably be found everywhere, despite it not being the standard.

Coffee from Starbucks, Costa, Caffe Nero (and pretty much any other chain) and in the UK, Germany, Scandinavia, US+Canada (except in those two or three places with proper coffee) is appallingly terrible .

### Re: How much can you detect in the structure of this conlang

It was given in the post that word order is important, and as the language looks quite isolating, I'd say that word order is quite strict and is used to mark the subject and object of verbs. Punctuation looks to be used mostly the same way as in English, which gives us that "Stordo d' xastnir ...

Not often seen other than in Italy, but burrata is a great cheese. Wikipedia (in English) states that it is a cheese made from cream and mozzarella. Wrong. It kinda tastes like that but it is definitely a different cheese, a cheese type by itself.
