In the 1930's scientists realized that there was more to the world than they previously thought. There was a lot of focus around this and it can be considered as the birth of the scientific age.

Coffee can be just as confusing as molecular physics if you let it be. It might just be a delicious drink to many people, but there are so many different names it can be like a maze!

A simple cup of coffee such as a Frappe is very popular in Europe, it's basically just a cold espresso which is made with two teaspoons of sugar, two teaspoons of milk and some crushed ice. It's served with a straw which makes it a very different drink!

On the other end of the scale you've got something much more extravagant, the Cappuccino Borgia. These have quarter of a cup of peeled orange, half a cup of chocolate ice cream, sex tablespoons of orange juice and quarter cup of milk to an espresso.

If you want a more modern variation of coffee then you could consider the Calypso Cooler. This coffee is chilled and very strong. This is flavored with some very ripe bananas and coffee ice cream. When rum is added it's truly amazing!

There are a number of nationalities that like the idea of adding alcohol to their coffee, in particular Latin. The Caffee Zabglone has a quarter of a cup of Marsala with quarter of a cup of sugar. Four egg yolks are added along with a pinch of salt. This mixture should be cooked until it is a little thick. Add to this mixture a cup of roast coffee and then you've got a beautiful drink!

Ancient Rome had an amazing coffee drink which is much better than the modern variations! You should add double strength coffee to half a cup of cream, eggnog and bourbon. This creates a Mardi Gras which is unforgettable!

Turkish coffee is well known for being very dark and having a very strong flavor when mixed with cardamom. However other countries have also found good ways of mixing cardamom and coffee together, Scandinavians make cardamom coffee.

To make this you should get an eighth of a cup of cognac and add two teaspoons of Curacao. Also add to this one teaspoon of sugar and a cardamom pod which you have cracked open and taken the seeds out. Heat it up in your microwave for about 10-15 seconds and then set it on fire with a match. Pour on your coffee to the lit mixture and drink.

There are a number of different people who have created wonderful ways of drinking this delicious drink. The people inventing these may not have invented anything important, but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't be remembered.
