Your summer vacation presents the ideal opportunity to try out some new foods and drinks. Many countries even have their own take on the classic cup of coffee. If you think there aren?t too many ways you can serve a good cup of coffee, you’re in for a surprise. Whether you prefer it warm or cold, there are plenty of different alternatives around the globe.
Coffee and cheese
For those who are booking places to stay in Helsinki, why not try the Finnish combination of coffee with cheese while you’re there? This concoction is known locally as “kaffeost”. It is traditionally served with a chunk of juustoleipa cheese in the bottom of a cup with hot coffee. Once you’ve finished the drink, you can then enjoy the coffee-infused cheese.
A jelly shot
In Japan, many people like to take their coffee in the form of a jelly. They combine sweetened coffee with gelatin and chill it in ice trays. Once it’s ready, the coffee jelly can be served with ice cream, whipped cream, or chocolate sauce.
A chilled treat
If you enjoy cooling down with ice cream on a warm summer’s day while getting your daily shot of caffeine, then you’ll love an Italian affogato. This consists of an espresso that is poured over delicious Italian ice cream.
These are just a few of the different ways you can enjoy your regular coffee, but there are plenty more options to be explored when you’re on your travels.
