12 Unique Coffees From Around The World

Ever want to drink your coffee like you're from another country?

83

March is the month to drink coffee or tea like people do in your target language's country! Ever wonder what the traditional ways of drinking coffee in other countries are? Now is your time to find out. I was mainly able to find European and American countries that have coffeehouse cultures. Many countries throughout Africa, the Middle East, Asia and parts of Europe (mainly the UK and Russia) have strong tea cultures that I'd love to write a future article about.

Many of these countries also have the "coffeehouse culture" that gives you the freedom to drink coffee or tea any way you want at specialty cafes. I've listed ways of drinking coffee that are unique to each country. Due to globalization, many of these are starting to make their way around the world, such as how the coffee culture from multiple European countries is making strong imprints on the US. After all, cultures have always been shared.

Without further adieu, here goes!

Finland

Cheese coffee! There are special types of cheeses you can put in your coffee.

Turkey

In Turkey, coffee is traditionally drunk with a cezve, and the beans settle on the bottom.

Italy

Made with the strongest beans possible in an espresso machine, and best consumed within five minutes for a good boost to your day!

Australia

In Australia, it is popular to put ice cream in your coffee.

France

In France, café au lait (coffee and milk brewed at the same time) is the popular way to take your coffee.

Ecuador

In Ecuador and throughout much of Latin America, people brew raw sugar with their coffee.

Morocco

In Morocco, people put cloves and other spices in their coffee.

Hong Kong

In this country, you can blend coffee and tea together!

Venezuela

Venezuela has something similar to a café au lait: combine milk and expresso and warm them at the same time.

Poland

Poland is one of those countries with a similar coffee culture to the US, but it is also known for instant coffee and specialty coffee shops around its old towns.

Colombia

In Colombia, cafes actually break down the coffee by region of the country. They also take much pride in getting it straight from the farm.

Canada

Maple syrup coffee! Add a spoonful of maple syrup.

I hope you enjoyed this list! Does your country have a special way of drinking coffee?

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
