Our mornings aren’t the same without this amazing frothy beverage. Let’s say, we can’t do without the caffeine punch that gives us just the kickstart we need to start our day.
Even if we belong to different countries, we bond over one thing: a cuppa of hot and steamy coffee! Ah, bliss! But we coffee connoisseurs are adventurists at heart, and we love to taste coffee from different parts of the world. Say you are from Manhattan and you are visiting Turkey, wouldn’t you like to try the amazing Turkish coffee? We bet you would want to. So, here are some coffee-tasting facts from across the world that would bring us, the coffee lovers of the world, together!
The Italian Affogato
When it comes to coffee, we cannot ignore Italy, the heart of the coffee world, with coffee varieties coming out of this country, which is the hub of art, architecture, fashion, and the works. Espresso, macchiato, latte, you name it, and it hails from Italy.
However, the Italian Affogato takes the cake here. It is the heavenly combination of the robust coffee flavor and the gelato ice cream’s subtle sweetness. Yum! Is it a coffee or a dessert? We don’t know about that one, but we aren’t judging either. Why should we when it combines the two of the most heavenly foods of the world?
A dollop of the creamiest gelato, a double shot of espresso, and the bubbly goodness that oozes from it is something you need to taste to believe. And if you want to make it even more sinful, creamy heaven of whipped cream served with a crunchy biscotti is what you should go for. Sipping some Affogato, sitting in a sun-drenched cafe, and watching the world pass by is all you need!
Turkish Türk Kahvesi
Turkish coffee or Türk Kahvesi is one of the most popular beverages around the world. It has a unique concoction, and the thick foam on the top gives the coffee its unique taste. However, the rule is not to add too much cream and milk and impact the foam.
You have to bring the sugar and water to a boil. Next, remove it from it while you add cardamom and coffee. Add the ibrik on the heat once again till you witness the froth, rising. Repeat it, then pour it into the cup as it settles down. There you brewed yourself a cup of happiness.
The Viatnamese Cà phê đá
The subtly sweet and rich iced- coffee from Vietnam is its national beverage. This coffee uses condensed milk and dark roast coffee in a French drop filter. Ca Phe Trung, is another concoction that deserves mention, the Vietnamese egg coffee, tastes as delicious as it sounds.
It earns extra brownie points as it tastes like tiramisu. It’s a heavenly combination of sugar, egg yolks, condensed milk, and robusta coffee. Brew a cup of extra dark coffee, separate the egg and mix it with the condensed milk until you get the frothy mixture. Now add a tablespoon of coffee to the mixture and continue to mix it. Next, pour the egg yolk mixture on top of the coffee, and there you go, the perfect brew to drive the weekday blues away.
The Australian flat white
This beverage is gaining popularity, around the world. The Aussies give their coffee a robust coffee double shot of espresso and top it off with steamed milk microfoam, the Flat White. Is it a latte or cappuccino? Well, the ratio is not quite the same. So, here’s how you do it, preheat the water in a pitcher and pour the milk into the pitcher. Froth the liquid with a double espresso shot. You can use a spoon to froth it continuously.
How is a Flat White made? Preheat water in a pitcher and pour the milk into the steaming pitcher. Pull in a double espresso shot until you create the microbubbles to make the velvety texture. As you pour the steamy coffee right into the center of the espresso, you get the perfect cup of Aussie coffee.
In most countries, coffee is almost a ritual that goes beyond liquid fuel. So, stay inspired and find out the best, most creative, and unique ways to drink coffee right within the confines of your home.
