5 popular coffee making methods from around the world

by RobertKeith

Coffee is the worlds most celebrated drink, here is how its made around the world.

No matter where you go or where you have “bean”, there is one beverage that is universally known and that beverage is coffee. Also, no matter what ground we lay our feet on, we all grind our coffee the same way. What is different by country is how we serve our coffee. These coffee choices are way better than cheap coffee pods. For instance, in Finland, they serve their coffee over cheese. People in Turkey do not filter their coffee. In Malaysia, they drink a coffee and tea blend.

If you are in Finland and you want some coffee, they serve their Kaffeost over juustoleipa (pieces of cheese curds) It may sound odd to us, but the residents of Finland think it is just fine. Turk Kahvesi is the name of coffee served in Turkey. It is served in a special brass or copper pot called a cezve. It is unfiltered which means that they drink every bit of the coffee, grounds and all. When it comes to making coffee in Malaysia, they drink a blend of coffee and tea that is three parts black coffee and seven parts Hong-Kong style milk tea, which is a mixture of black tea and milk. In Australia, Greece, and Italy, they have coffee drinks that are similar to the coffee drinks that they serve in America.

Australians serve a drink that is like a latte. They pour microfoam (steamed, velvety milk) over a shot of espresso. Greece serves Frappes and they love to drink them in the summertime. They are made of instant iced coffee that is drowned in milk foam. In Italy, they serve an authentic Italian espresso with a slice of lemon that is said to bring out the flavor of the espresso. The Vietnamese drink Ca phe da a very sweet and very strong and it is made with coarsely ground dark roast coffee. The Vietnamese brew their coffee straight into a cup of condensed milk and ice through a French drip filter. Cafe de Olla is served in Mexico and it is simmered with a cinnamon stick, piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar), and is served in a clay mug that the locals say brings out the flavor of the coffee. In many different parts of the world, they use different types of tools to make their coffee.

The French Press, also known as the coffee plunger, cafetiere, or Bodum. They can be found in France (where they were first patented), North America, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. The flavor of a coffee made by a French Press is clearer, the texture is thicker, and it is said that it makes the taste purer also.The Sock is used in Central and South America where it is used like a drip filter. In Thailand and Malaysia, the sock covers the rim of the pot and the grinds are immersed in water, steeping. After the first few brews (that taste like cotton), the tastes will come out with clear high notes like floral or fruitiness. 

No matter what their daily grind or how people choose to espresso their feelings for coffee, there is one thing that we all know, that people around the world love cheap coffee pods. People from all cultures love coffee due to all the perks that come with drinking it. It definitely helps many with their daily grind and now I am going to put a stop to the puns before you have had a latte (lot) of them.
