We’re not sure who was first inspired to add creamy, delicious caramel to their coffee — but this flavor combination has become incredibly popular here in North America — and it is one Organo Gold is looking forward to introducing to the world with the launch of the new Caramel Vanilla BrewKup™.
Of course, caramel isn’t the only flavor that pairs well with coffee — so we thought we’d take a look at some of the different styles and flavors of coffee that are enjoyed around the world.
Australians are fond of a particular style of coffee known as a Flat White. It is essentially a double espresso that is served with a small amount of steamed and slightly frothed milk (so it contains significantly less milk than a latte, for example) or what is known as “micro foam.” There is considerably less foam than on a latte (say one quarter of an inch), hence the name “flat.”
In the warm, sun-drenched Greek islands, the chill of a frappe is a popular summertime drink. A frappe is a frothed-up blend of milk, sugar and instant coffee, which is shaken vigorously and then served over ice.
In Mexico, coffee is often flavored not just with sugar, but a dash of cinnamon for some extra kick.
A popular after dinner drink in Spain, a Café con Miel combines coffee, milk, spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, and a spoonful of honey for sweetness.
Traditionally, Turkish coffee is strong, dark and thick, and is flavored with sugar to cut the bitterness, and is often brewed with cardamom pods in the coffee pot, which adds a unique, spicy flavor to the drink.
The Vietnamese are famous for their iced coffee, which is sweetened with condensed milk and poured over ice.
