Coffee Recipes From Around the World

Coffee Recipes From Around the World

September 29, 2020

Coffee (aka life blood) is one of the world’s most widely consumed beverages, and it’s easy to see why. For many of us, our daily routine consists of a cuppa joe with some cream and sugar, or maybe an espresso-based drink from our favorite coffee shop, but there are so many more ways to enjoy this popular beverage.

In honor of International Coffee Day on October 1st, we’re sharing six different coffee recipes from around the world. So, if your coffee is feeling monotonous and boring lately, try a few of these international recipes to jazz up your daily cup of liquid energy.

Cà phê đáCà phê đá – Vietnam

This sweet and creamy Vietnamese iced coffee features sweetened condensed milk and dark-roast coffee. The origins of this drink are very interesting! Coffee was introduced to Vietnam in the 1800s by the French, and because of the limited availability of fresh milk at the time, people started putting sweetened condensed milk in their coffee as a substitute.

Follow this recipe from Bon Appétit to make it yourself.

You Will Need:

 

Directions:

  1. Steep coffee grounds in ⅔ cup of boiling water for 4 minutes.
  2. Pour through coffee filter into a heatproof glass.
  3. Stir in condensed milk until blended.
  4. Add ice, stir, and serve.

 

Dalgona Coffee

Dalgona Coffee – South Korea

This whipped coffee drink was all the rage on social media during quarantine. If you haven’t had the chance to try it yet, this recipe from delish has a video showing you how to do it. You can make this recipe with a whisk, but we recommend a hand mixer for a faster, easier process.

You Will Need:

 

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, coffee, and water.
  2. Using a hand mixer or a whisk, vigorously whisk until mixture turns silky smooth and shiny, then continue whisking until it thickens and holds its lofty, foamy shape. (If whisking by hand, it will take 8 to 12 minutes to get to optimal fluffiness.)
  3. Fill a glass most of the way full with ice and milk, then dollop and swirl the whipped coffee mixture on top, mixing before drinking, if desired.

 

Türk Kahvesi

Türk Kahvesi – Turkey

If you’re a fan of bold, strong coffee, you will enjoy Turkish coffee. Traditionally, this coffee is made in a small copper pot or ibrik, but you can also prepare it in a small saucepan. Contrary to most methods of coffee brewing which require a filter, Turkish coffee is unfiltered, leaving the fine coffee grounds to rest at the bottom of your cup. Follow this recipe from The Spruce Eats to learn how to make it.

You Will Need:

  • 1 cup water (cold)
  • 1 tbsp. extra finely ground coffee (powder consistency)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom (or 1 cardamom pod, crushed)
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon sugar (or more, to taste)

 

Directions:

  1. Bring water and sugar to a boil in an ibrik or small saucepan.
  2. Remove from heat and add coffee and cardamom.
  3. Return saucepan to heat and allow to come to a boil. Remove from heat when coffee foams.
  4. Again, return to heat, allowing to foam and remove from heat again.
  5. Pour into 2 small cups, and let them sit for a few minutes so the grounds can settle to the bottom of the cups. Enjoy!

 

Cafézinho

Cafézinho – Brazil

Cafézinho literally translates to “little coffee.” Instead of adding sugar at the end like we are used to, this coffee is brewed together with the sugar and then filtered. Using finely ground espresso coffee and the pour-over technique, the result is a bold and sweet black coffee. Follow this recipe from Coffeesesh.

You Will Need:

  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 tbps. ground espresso
  • Sugar (to preference)
  • Coffee filter

 

Directions:

  1. Boil water with sugar in a small saucepan.
  2. Turn the heat to low as soon as the water comes to a boil and the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add the finely ground coffee to the saucepan.
  4. Stir, then instantly remove from heat.
  5. Slowly pour through the filter. Pouring it slowly results in a better-tasting coffee.
  6. Enjoy! Start by trying it black. From there, you can add cream or sugar to taste.

 

Yuanyang

Yuanyang – Hong Kong

Love coffee and tea? Now you can have both together in this Hong Kong style coffee that can be enjoyed hot or iced. This combination of coffee and black milk tea will give you the energy buzz you were looking for. Check out this recipe from The Woks of Life.

You Will Need:

 

Directions:

  1. Brew your black tea leaves in 4 ½ cups of water. While the tea is steeping, brew your coffee with your preferred method. Make sure both the tea and coffee are fairly strong.
  2. When the coffee and tea are ready, combine them in a large bowl or carafe.
  3. Stir the sugar into the coffee/tea mixture.
  4. Add the half and half.
  5. Stir thoroughly and serve!

 

Irish Coffee

Irish Coffee

Last but not least, we have coffee with a twist. Using Irish whiskey, this drink is a favorite in Irish pubs, and now you can recreate it at home. For an authentic Irish coffee, try using medium or dark roast coffee prepared in a French press or pour-over. Here is a simple recipe from The Spruce Eats.

You Will Need:

 

Directions:

  1. Stir the hot coffee and sugar in an Irish coffee glass, mug, or other heat-proof glass.
  2. Add the Irish whiskey and stir again.
  3. Float the lightly whipped heavy cream on top by pouring it over the back of a spoon.
  4. Do not stir again. Instead, drink the coffee through the cream.
