Coffee around the world
Creating and enjoying your perfect cup of coffee is no longer a daily chore: it is a ritual that is ingrained in our lifestyle and our culture. While your coffee moment is a routine that people across the world have in common, different cultures and nationalities all have a unique way in which they create their coffees.
Americans are famous for creating fancy coffees like the Macchiato, but this nation can be defined by their coffee namesake, the Americano: a single or double shot of espresso topped up with hot water.
South Africans have a penchant for milky coffees, so their beverage of choice is a flat white. This is similar to a latte though smaller in volume and can be made by pouring microfoam (steamed milk) over a shot of espresso.
The frappé is a popular summer beverage in Greece, made by pouring an espresso over ice and topping it off with milk foam. Try this by using the Nespresso Intenso on Ice or Leggero on Ice, limited edition capsules created specifically to be enjoyed as a cold drink.
The classic Italian coffee is an espresso-like Nespresso Roma – served with a slice of lemon, which is said to amplify the coffee’s sweeter notes.
Vietnamese people are renowned for a very sweet and a very strong brew called Cà phê đá. This is made by brewing intense, dark coffee directly into a cup of condensed milk and ice.
The Spaniards enjoy their coffee on the sweeter side. Cafe Bombon, as it is known, is created by stirring an equal amount of condensed milk into black coffee.
The French serve their coffee, Cafe au lait, with equal parts steamed milk and freshly brewed cup. Best served in a big cup for extra ooh la la.
German coffee is the very definition of decadent Pharisäer is made with espresso, rum, and sugar, and topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
