People have various techniques for preparing this brewed drink worldwide. So brace yourselves because we have selected the ten most unique coffees from all over the world to keep your winter cravings satisfied.
1. Turkish Coffee
Turkey is a land of rich cultural heritage and historic landmarks, and of course, exquisite food. Turkish drinks are trendy globally, and Turkish Coffee (Turk kahvesi) happens to be one of them. It is prepared using a cezve or ibrik (coffee pot), ground coffee, and sugar to taste.
2. Swedish Kaffeost
Not everyone will be able to indulge in the Swedish coffee affair, but you may also give it a shot. Sweden Kaffeost is coffee with cheese cubes. The toasted bread cheese cubes are added to the freshly brewed coffee, and your creamy, cheesy coffee is ready.
3. Austrian Wiener Melange
The people in Austria are seemingly fond of coffee and cakes, so they host impressive coffee houses and cafes. The Austrian Wiener Melange is a brewed espresso with a creamy layer of hot milk and foam. Cocoa powder provides the finishing touches.
4. Mexicano Cafe de Olla
It’s time to explore the Mexican side of coffee with the traditional Cafe de Olla. It is a rural indulgence ideally brewed in the colder seasons. Traditionally, it’s prepared in a clay pot and has a rich black color with cinnamon and cane sugar as its main ingredients.
5. Italian Affogato
How about going off the hot coffee path and indulging in some fusion recipe? The Italian Affogato is essentially the combination of Italian coffee and the much-popular gelato ice cream. It involves pouring hot espresso over scoops of ice cream and some chocolate shavings sprinkled on top.
6. Scandinavian Egg Coffee
Have you ever thought of combining an egg with coffee? It’s worth a shot because people in Sweden and Norway used to add eggs to eliminate their coffee’s bitter flavor when more modern brewing and refining methods were not readily available. It is a traditional coffee recipe not so prevalent now, but a must-try.
7. Vietnamese Ca Phe Trung
Here’s another instance where eggs are combined with coffee. The Ca Phe Trung is Vietnamese egg coffee, and it is made with egg yolks, sugar, condensed milk, and coffee. The creamy texture with the aroma of strong coffee is a taste journey worth taking.
8. German Pharisaer Kaffee
The next in line is the German coffee, called Pharisaer Kaffee. You start by preparing a strong brewed coffee and pouring it in a tall glass. Then add sugar and rum, finish off by topping it with whipped cream, and no further stirring.
9.Hong Kong Yuanyang
Yuanyang comes from Hong Kong and is a fusion of coffee and milk tea. The lovely combination of tea and milk enhances the resulting beverage’s aroma and offers a flavor that provides the best of tea and coffee.
10. Flat White Coffee
While no formal agreement has been reached about where it originated (a close call between Australia and New Zealand), a flat coffee is neither a strong cappuccino nor a latte. It is something much creamier, foamy and espresso-like, and offers an authentic, unmatched coffee indulgence.
