Coffee has become a sort of cultural phenomenon these days.
It ranges from the straightforward Italian espresso shot to traditional Turkish coffee and many other types of coffee. People all over the world follow a similar ritual: they wake up and grab a cup of coffee. There is something special in the coffee preparation process itself, and its ingredients. Here’s a breakdown of how people enjoy drinking coffee around the world:
1. Mexico: Cafe de olla
That is one of the most famous Mexican beverages, and it has been served for a very long time. It is a mix of three spices: cloves, anise, and cinnamon. Initially, cafe de olla was made in a clay pot, known an “olla” and served in similar clay mugs. It also contains a small amount of processed sugar called piloncillo.
2. Malaysia: Yuanyang
That is one of the most amazing drinks that can be served quickly, hot or cold. It consists of three types of coffee and seven types of Hong Kong-style milk tea.
3. Greece: Frappe
It sounds almost like a frappuccino, but this trendy Greek beverage is a bit different. The frappé may be a refreshing summer drink made of instant coffee, water, sugar, and milk if you wish. It has a soft, foamy top and ice over it.
4. Senegal: Cafe touba
This drink is flavored with Guinea pepper and cloves; the spices are mixed in with coffee beans. The coffee is roasted, ground and filtered afterward.
5. Hong Kong: Yuanyang
In Hong Kong, people have a unique way of drinking coffee. Yuanyang is a mixture of homemade milk tea and freshly brewed coffee (it’s sometimes referred to as “coffee with tea”). Milk tea is tea mixed with milk, making it creamy and sweet.
6. Italy: Espresso Romano
An authentic Italian espresso comes with a slice of lemon, which brings out the java’s sweet flavors. It is a coffee-making method of Italian origin, during which a little amount of nearly boiling water is poured onto finely-ground coffee beans. Espresso can be made of different sorts of coffee beans.
7. Brazil: Cafezinho
While many people consider the caipirinha to be Brazil’s national drink, cafezinho is one of the first popular local drinks. Almost like espresso shots, cafezinhos are small, strong cups of coffee. The sole difference is that cafezinhos are pre-sweetened.
8. Morocco: Spiced coffee
Morrocan spiced coffee is a popular beverage in Morocco. It looks like a fragrant blend of dark coffee with warm spices that are rarely served in street cafes. Morrocan spiced coffee isn’t an ordinary blend because this traditional coffee is exotic and a bit luxurious; yet, its rich aroma evokes comforting warmth.
9. Cuba: Cafe Cubano
Cuban coffee is served in tacitas (tiny cups) that are smaller than demitasse cups. It can be easily made in a pot on the stove, but most of the Cubans prefer Italian espresso. Café Cubano is a sort of espresso that originates from Cuba. To be more specific, it tastes like sweetened espresso coffee shot. That is one of the most amazing coffee-based drinks that include Cuban espresso as their main ingredient, like café con leche. The making of the Cafe Cubano includes a Stovetop Espresso pot.
