While Australian coffee is definitely up there with the best, other countries have their own unique ways of serving it. Here are 10 coffee traditions from around the world coffee lovers will want to know about.

  1. Morocco

In Morocco, a popular coffee choice is known as Nous Nous. Translating to mean “half and the half”, Nous Nous is a strong espresso with half a glass of hot, frothy milk on top, served in a small glass.

  1. Japan

In Japan, they have Kan Kohi - canned coffee that can be purchased in vending machines and grocery stores.

  1. Vietnam

In Vietnam, they like their coffee strong. Their signature iced coffee is known as Cafe Sua Da, which is made with coarse ground dark roasted coffee beans and served with sweetened condensed milk.

  1. Austria

Austria is rich in coffee traditions. One of them is the Kaisermelange - strong black coffee mixed with an egg yolk and honey.

  1. Greece

Greece was the birthplace of the Frappé - an iced coffee that is milky, sweet and served in a tall glass. The Frappé has gained popularity worldwide.

  1. Argentina

In Argentina, the coffee culture caters to everyone - even the non-coffee drinkers. For those who aren’t fans of the potent brew, there is the Lagrima - an espresso-sized cup of milk with just one drop of coffee on top.

  1. Ireland

Irish Coffee is a drink most associated with Christmastime. It is hot coffee mixed with Irish whiskey and topped with a layer of thick cream. It is not for the faint-hearted!

  1. Finland

In Finland, they take coffee to a new level. A traditional cup of coffee is Kaffeost - a black coffee with chunks of cheese at the bottom. Its taste isn’t dissimilar to the dessert, Tiramisu.

  1. Mexico

In Mexico, they have Café de Olla - pot-brewed coffee where dark roasted coffee is mixed with cinnamon and brown sugar, and served with orange peel.

  1. Australia

Australian coffee culture is massive; one of the biggest in the world. Italian migrants introduced coffee to Australia post-World War II, but it wasn’t until the late 20th century that it became as popular as it is today.

In Australia, the coffee is strong, and people drink a lot of it. You can even get your coffee tailored to exactly how you like it at Haven Speciality Coffee - one of the best cafes in Surry Hills, Sydney, for brunch and coffee.
