The rich aroma and unique taste of coffee is the first beverage for millions worldwide. However, the types of coffee found at different places have a certain sense of uniqueness. Over the years, various cultures have habituated themselves to specific coffee types.
The origin of coffee can be linked to a specific region of the African continent, Ethiopia. We need to be thankful for this wonderful beverage to one observant goat herder who observed his animals getting much energetic after consuming specific berries. This is where coffee was formally introduced to the world.
In this blog, we shall look at the eight types of coffee consumed in different parts of the world.
Type # 1: The Italian Type – Affogato
Affogato is a classic Italian coffee whose main ingredients are espresso and gelato. To prepare this classic beverage, all you need is a scoop of gelato, one shot of espresso and a chilled bowl. Put the gelato in a chilled bowl and immediately pour the espresso over it. If you feel a little adventurous, you may put toppings such as whipped cream, liqueur, or nuts.
Type # 2: The Swedish Type – Kaffeost
To prepare Kaffeost, you need to make arrangements for several things. You will need 2 litres of milk, about 60ml of heavy cream, a thermometer, two teaspoons rennet, cheesecloth, pot, strainer, pie plate, and a single cup of brewed coffee. If you need more details about brewed coffee, then check out this coffee guide site.
Start by heating the milk and cream in the pot till it reaches 37-degree C. Now remove the content and stir the rennet. Allow the mixture to settle and then re-heat till it reaches 37-degree C. Use a cheesecloth to line the strainer and store the water in a vessel. Now put the curds into the cheesecloth and fold the whole cloth around and extract as much water as you can.
Once you get the cheese, put it into an oven-proof dish and bake it to 177-degree C. Bake it till it becomes golden brown.
You can now slice this cheese and turn them into cubes. Put this in a mug. Finish making your Kaffeost by pouring your favourite coffee over the cheese.
Type # 3: The Turkish Type – Turk Kahvesi
To prepare Turk Kahvesi, you will need a Turkish pot, also known as “ibrik”. Alternatively, you may use a saucepan. Put the water and sugar in ibrik and boil it till sugar dissolves. Take off the ibrik and add cardamom and coffee.
Mix them well and place the pan on the heat again. Repeat the process of putting on heat and removing it two or three times when you see foam. Pour the preparation into a cup to enjoy your Kahvesi.
Type # 4: The Mexican Type – Café De Olla
Café de olla is basically a pot of coffee that is prepared in a clay pot. Two distinctive ingredients for this unique coffee are cinnamon and piloncillo sugar. To prepare this unique coffee, you need to use a pan and put water into it. Now add the piloncillo cones and cinnamon and bring the water to boil.
Once the sugar is dissolved completely, take the pot from heat and let it cool. Now add the coffee grounds to it and let it seep for about 10 minutes. Pour the coffee into cups to enjoy your Café de olla.
