Coffee Drink Recipes From Around The World

Coffee is the second most imported commodity in todays world, immediately behind petroleum. This beverage has become so widely known that many coffee-derivative drinks have been produced and consumed for years. Below are a few average coffee drink recipes.

The first drink would, of course, be coffee. Grown all around the planet but particularly in Ethiopia, the Middle East, Columbia and Brazil, coffee seeds are cultivated, dried, and then roasted. The procedure in preparation is complex, but the coffee drink recipe for coffee is simple: Coffee beans, consisting of caffeine and a variety of oils indigenous to the particular environment in which the beans are extracted.

One coffee drink, called Ca Phe Sua, widely known in Vietnam comes in two variations Ca Phe Sua Da (coffee, milk, and ice) and Ca Phe Sua Nong (coffee and milk hot). The coffee drink recipe for the first is composed of the simple technique of blending dark French Roast with a quarter to half percent of condensed milk and then pouring, through a small drip filter, over ice. The coffee drink recipe for the second is related, but ice is withheld, leaving only hot Ca Phe Sua.

The celebrated and widely consumed Espresso, invented and constructued in Italy and widely used all over Europe, has a wide array of coffee drink recipes. Only a couple of them are described here.

A formal Italian Espresso is made by forcing moderately hot water through high pressure (nine to ten atmospheres, or bars) into extremely fine-ground coffee to create a drink thicker in consistency than regular coffee and composed of a variety of vegetable oils, proteins, sugars, and reddish-brown foam called Crema.

Espresso has very little water. The coffee drink recipe for Caffe Americano (American Coffee), an American version of Espresso, has a higher degree of water and is produced related to the drip-brew fashion.

The coffee drink recipe for Latte (Italian for milk) is a simple one: Caf a Latte, meaning Coffee and Milk, is composed of one-third Espresso and two-thirds steamed milk, poured together at the same time into either side of the drinking cup. Caf Lattes typically have foam floating on top.

The Frappaccino is a trendy drink sold by the Starbucks coffee chain. This coffee drink recipe is as follows: one-part soluble coffee is blended with water, which in turn is mixed with an one-part proprietary liquid comprised of milk, sugar substances, and caramel flavoring and then to conclude with ice. A Frappaccino has a milkshake consistency, an enduring coffee flavor, and is chilled before drinking.

All of these and many other coffee drink recipes are available on the Web or in various recipe books. For those who love coffee, these coffee drink recipes will leave mouths watering!

Mmm, coffee! That oughta get your fire burnin!
