People have been drinking coffee for almost a thousand years. Since it was first discovered in the Kaffa Zone in southwestern Ethiopia sometime in the 9th century, it has been cultivated in over 60 countries around the world. Each country has its traditional method of preparing and drinking coffee. These are many such unique techniques that you may not be familiar with.
Thai Style Coffee (Gafeh Rorn)
Traditional Thai coffee, known as Gafeh Rorn, is served cold with a great deal of sweetened condensed milk. This type of coffee is often sold at Mamak stalls in Malasia, despite its origin in Thailand, a country that has much influence on the region. Traditionally these stalls were set up outside with open-air seating and were run by Tamil Muslim immigrants. Today, many of these stalls are modernized, and some are a part of indoor spaces. The coffee is usually served as part of a meal, rather than a stand-alone drink.
This drink is an essential part of Turkish culture and is even used as a part of Turkish wedding ceremonies. Turkish coffee is made by using the best coffee beans and grinding them into a fine powder. The powder is then boiled with water in a unique pot called a cezve; and then sugar is added, but this depends on the drinker’s taste. The coffee is then poured into the cup, along with the grounds, which causes some to settle, but many drink along with the coffee. Because some of the grounds is settled after the coffee has been consumed, many Turkish fortune tellers have taken to using the left behind grounds to tell fortunes.
This is a particular way of drinking espresso that originated in Cuba. It is made by mixing espresso with sugar and is otherwise poured the same as Italian espressos. Cuba has a rich culture and various traditions when it comes to coffee, and the coffee Cubano is a large part of it. Coffee has been a part of Cuban culture since the 1700s when it was first introduced to the island. Cuba was once a major producer of coffee and the coffee bean, and coffee plantations are an essential part of Cuba’s history.
Coffee Cubano is an integral part of the daily life of the Cuban people. Cubans often use coffee as an excuse to relax and hang out with friends, and do so at many times during the day. This culture has extended to Miami, where many Cuban immigrants live. In Miami, 3:05 pm is a traditional cafecito time when people all over the city stop to have a Cafe Cubano or another drink made from the sweet, rich espresso drinks.
This traditional drink is made in the country of Senegal and named after the city of Touba, Senegal. It is a popular drink with both cultural and religious significance and holds a unique flavour due to the use of grains of Selim, which are ground into the best coffee beans.
The drink’s history can be traced to Sheikh Ahmadou Bamba Mbacke, the founder of the Mouride Brotherhood in Senegal. He is said to have consumed Cafe Touba after he came to Senegal following his return from exile in Gabon, in 1902. Since then it has become an essential part of the sects religious ceremonies and has been popular in Senegal and nearby Guinea-Bissau.
Coffee around the world have become an integral part of daily life.
