Coffee is the most cherished drink in the world. Morning, for many people, cant be complete without a cup of coffee. Some like to drink it with milk, some brew it strong without the milk and sugar. Whatever may be the way of brewing a coffee, we can not deny the fact that it is very important in our lives. Ethiopia may be the birthplace of coffee beans. Yet for centuries now, humans have been enjoying coffee. Inventing new, unexpected ways to drink it. Here is how a cup of coffee appears around the world, from coffee with cheese to aromatic coffee beans ground with spices.
This amazing cuppa can be both consumed hot or cold. It is prepared by adding 3 parts of black coffee and seven parts of Hong Kong-style milk tea. A blend of black tea and milk. It is also called Kopi Cham in Malaysia.
The most unusual way of drinking coffee is what we learn from the people of Hanoi. Here in Hanoi, people like their coffee brewed and added to a blend of egg white, sugar and condensed milk. Coffee and egg together, I never thought of it before.
Have you heard about weird food combination? Like oreo and pickles, noodles and ketchup. There’s one more to it. Coffee and cheese. Yes, You heard it right! There is a very unusual way of preparing coffee called kaffeost in countries like Finland, Sweden, and Norway. You’ll need a few pieces of juustoleipä, a special form of dried cheese. Which is made in the northern Scandinavian countries, to prepare a cup of kaffeost.
This one is versatile. You will find it in every coffee shop around the world. To make a cup of flat white, microfoam (steamed, smooth milk) is poured over a shot of espresso to make this Australian favourite.
Espresso is very popular in Rome. A real Italian espresso comes with a lemon wedge that is said to bring out the sweeter flavours of java.
In a special copper or brass pot called a cezve, the roasted and finely ground coffee beans are simmered. Turkish people are insane for coffee. And so they have created one of the world’s most delicious ways of making it. This can be made using fire but they brew it using special sand.
Strongly brewed coffee blended in a thick layer of condensed milk to get the texture and the sweet, milky taste.
Traditional Mexican coffee uses unrefined cane sugar called piloncillo and is simmered with a cinnamon stick. It is typically served in a clay pot, which Mexicans believe brings out the flavours of coffee.
Spices are added while roasting the coffee beans. Together they form an amazing flavour. To make such a kind of coffee, a specific kind of Guinea pepper is shipped to Senegal. Some cloves are used occasionally to enhance the taste. The preparation of this coffee is similar to others but the taste is completely different.
The hybrid coffee cocktail is a blend of hot coffee, Irish whiskey and sugar, as per taste and is topped with a layer of thick cream.
Dark coffee brewed with spices like cardamom, clove, black pepper, cinnamon etc., gives the perfect cup of Moroccan special. Sounds refreshing right?
