Coffee Around the World

Have you ever wondered what other types of coffees there are in the world?

Here we are going to talk about some of the different coffees around the world.

Let’s get started!

Turkish coffee, also known as Türk Kahvesi, is very well known around the world. Traditionally it is prepared in either an ibrik or cezve, which is a small copper or brass pot. Turkish coffee has a certain preparation; sugar is added during the brewing process and there is no cream or milk. During the boiling process, the coffee creates a very foamy surface which should be left alone, no stirring is needed for your coffee as that’s the traditional way to consume it. Cardamom is also added to the coffee to add a little floral flavor to make it extra delicious.

In the Mediterranean parts of Greece, the frappe is the most well-known coffee. The frappe is made with iced instant coffee with plenty of foamed milk. There are 3 sugar options you can choose from to go with your frappe. These include sketo (no sugar), metrio (some sugar), and glyko (2-4 spoonfuls of sugar).

In Mexico, Cafe de Olla is often found in rural areas with colder climates. The coffee is brewed in a clay pot; its unique flavor comes from piloncillo cones, which is an unrefined cane sugar added with cinnamon. This coffee is often served black and you may come across this coffee being served with a hint of orange peel, cloves, and allspice.

Ethiopia is often referred to as the “birthplace of coffee.” Ethiopia Genika or “coffee is our bread” is made during coffee ceremonies in which the beans are roasted in a pan before being ground and are served to family and guests. Ethiopia is among the top world’s coffee producers and consumers, as it has been exporting coffee since the 15th century.

Irish coffee is one of the most popular and unique coffee there is. This coffee has a special kick to it. It is made with hot coffee, Irish whiskey, and thick cream. First made by a man of the name Joseph Sheridan in 1942, this coffee is perfect for winter and is a must-try if you ever go to Ireland (once you’re of drinking age).

The Affogato is a classic Italian combo. This coffee combination involves pouring hot espresso over a very generous amount of ice cream. There are many variations for this coffee however one that is rather well known is adding a shot of liqueur such as amaretto or bicerin to the coffee.

Cafezinho is a way stronger form of espresso. It is often served to visitors as a sign of hospitality. This coffee is strong, thick, sweet, and is brewed through a special cloth flannel filter. Cafezinho is drunk without milk or cream.
