Our coffee in the U.S. Is generally a long, not very strong one, to which often milk and sugar are added. In other parts of the world like Italy you have to order an „Americano“
-Irish Coffee (Ireland), coffee with whiskey, brown sugar and whipped cream
-Frappe Coffee (Greece), instant coffee, cold water and ice cubes
-Eiskaffee (Germany), instant coffee, ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate chips
-Kopi Susu Panas (Malaysia), prepared with half coffee and half condensed milk
As some of them are shorter coffees, other ones longer; some hot, some cold they are served in different glasses, mugs and cups. While the Irish coffee is usually served in a high mug, the German Eiskaffee is often served in a glass which resembles a bowl for ice cream.
Some of these combinations are very unusual but well worth trying them. If you find a certain speciality, for example on your holidays that you really like, you often want to present it to your friends and family at home. So why not getting the recipe and the right cup or mug and prepare it for them? In that way you take a bit of that holiday feeling homewith you.
