Great Coffee and Where to Drink it Around the World
Really goo coffee is an essential part of culture all over the world.
Below is a guide to what brews to order from Australia to Ethiopia via Turkey, Greece, Mexico and Hollywood.
CAFÉ CUBANO – CUBA
Also called a cafecito, a café Cubano.
To make it, a shot of dark-roasted espresso is brewed either directly onto sugar, or it is mixed and melted with the grounds for an very, very sweet cup. If you need a little milk with your coffee, ask for a cortadito.
MÉLANGE – AUSTRIA
Coffee in Austria is widely varied. One of the most popular, however, is the Wiener mélange: similar to a cappuccino, the drink comprises of an espresso shot served in a large coffee cup, topped with steamed milk and milk foam.
Or try a kaisermelange, which consists of the shot of espresso topped with a honey-egg yolk mix and whipped cream. Delicious!
ESPRESSO ROMANO – ITALY (pictured above)
When in Italy do as the Italians do, drink your espresso standing up, and do it quickly. It is not just about speed, though: your goal is to drink the espresso before the ‘crema’ the creamy emulsion of the coffee’s oils that temporarily covers the espresso and locks in the flavors disappears.
This is a rule in Italia, do not order a cappuccino after 11:00a, as most Italians believe it will negatively impact your digestive system.
