It is actually culaccino(at least in Italian) and it is the penultimate syllable (ci) that takes the stress.

Welcome back, BD, and thanks for the clarification. I wonder why most sites list this word with just the one c?

And, for the fun of it, here's Babelfish's translation of the definitions on the treccani.it site:
Part finishes them of salami, salsicce and brokerage house. ; also the inferior part of a cetriolo, beside the stem. 2. not com. to What is left in the bottom of a glass or other small container. b. Sign that leaves a container bathed on the place dov'è be rested.


Gotta love it!

Economic cutbacks have led to the elimination of double consonants in all languages. I fear that vowels are next.

The average teen texts 3400 times a month or
once every 10 minutes. Guess you're not much
of a teen.

And to think it was called progress when we went from
telegraph to telephone. Imagine talking to persons
first hand! Now we are back to using the fingers
and texting: regression??? Voice talk no longer popular.
