Rise and Shine, Around the World!
Morning Coffees, Enjoyed around the World!
It's a common part of everyone's morning routine- a cup of coffee. Enjoyed all over the world, we have gathered unique spins on your average cup of morning jo!
Egg Coffee, Vietnam
Recipes vary, but the fundamentals are egg yolk + condensed milk + sugar + hot coffee. The result is very rich, like a dessert.
Traditionally served in Kainuu in central-east Finland, a cheese called juustoleipä is served with coffee. The cheese is cut into small chunks and placed at the bottom of the cup, and then coffee is poured on top. After you drink the coffee, you eat the cheese with a spoon.
Kan Kohi, Japan
There are a number of companies producing Kan Kohi (canned coffee) in Japan. It’s available from corner shops and vending machines, served hot in the winter and cold in the summer.
Café Lagrima, Argentina
Light and airy, this is steamed milk and foam, with just a ‘teardrop’ of coffee.
Turkish Coffee, Turkey
So important to Turkish culture that Unesco included it on its 2013 Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Served thick and strong.
Cafe del Olla, Mexico
Traditionally prepared in a clay pot, this coffee is brewed with cinnamon and pilloncillo.
Cafe Bombon, Spain
An espresso with sweet condensed milk. If you want a mix of half normal milk and half sweetened condensed milk, then it’s a ‘leche y leche’.
Espresso Romano, Italy
Espresso served with a slice of lemon. The lemon is rubbed on the rim of the cup, the idea being that the sourness of the lemon enhances flavours in the coffee.
Coffee with rum and whipped cream! There are various legends about the origins of the name, but basically yum yum yum.
Made with instant coffee, evaporated milk and ice-cold water, a frappé isn’t glam, but it is definitely delicious.
Wherever your are around the globe, the one thing we all share in common, is our love for our coffee!
Cheers & Have a beautiful day, and an Espresso Bella!
