There are many ways to enjoy coffee. This delicious drink has gained great social importance and has created a whole culture around it.
First, it is important to note that coffee is very different depending on factors such as roasting, grinding or the production method itself, the variety of coffee, sugar, or the different ingredients that can be added, from milk to liquors, passing for spices or fruits.

Coffee for all tastes … Which one do you prefer?
The well-known frappuccino has its origin in the Greek frappé, very popular during the summer. It consists of a generally instant coffee served with ice and “topped” with whipped cream.
For those who prefer strong tastes, Turkish coffee is ideal. It is made with ground coffee type Arabica. As a result, a very concentrated, thick coffee is obtained, since it is made by boiling the ground beans directly in the water, falling into the cups where it is served, leaving the characteristic grounds.
Black coffee or “espresso”, as they call it in Italy, this drink is made under pressure using an espresso machine, after having pulverized the roasted coffee beans using a grinder. An authentic Italian espresso is served in a small porcelain cup, narrower at the base than at the top, to maintain the temperature and favor the perception of its aromas and flavor. The infusion will fill the cup about an inch and should have a good layer of cream.
The bonbon coffee is served in a small glass with two-thirds of coffee with one part of condensed milk. A sweet treat!

Another drink that combines alcohol is Irish coffee, which was born on a cold winter night in 1942 (when there were flights between Ireland and the United States, better known as flying boats), for a group of passengers whose plane had to return due to a strong storm. The cafe features espresso, Irish whiskey, brown sugar, and whipped cream.
The alcohol infusion can be strained or served with grains and citrus skin. This drink is typical of Spain and its origin dates back to the time when Cuba was Spanish and the soldiers combined coffee with rum to take courage, for courage.
