There is one drink, which is common throughout the world, and that is coffee. Different cultures enjoy this drink in various ways. In hot countries it is often drank chilled, while in colder climates a hot cup of coffee always goes down well. A couple of decades ago, coffee was only really available to the masses in instant form. However, times have changed, and there are now many types of coffee available. In fact, with so many, it can be difficult for the consumer to select what they want.
As well as the various beans, the way they are roasted and ground can make a difference to the overall taste. Then there is the way they are brewed, as well as what is added to the drink. Popular is freshly brewed black coffee. Next to that is the brewed coffee with either milk or sugar added, and sometimes both. Flavors can also be added, such as vanilla and chocolate, and even a creamer I saw that was Girl Scout Cookie “Thin Mint.”
When entering a coffee bar, espresso’s, normal brews, lattes and cappuccino’s are favorites with customers. There are also frappuccino’s and a number of other blends. Whatever a person’s taste, there is a coffee format that will suit their taste buds.
Where the actual coffee bean is grown can also make a difference to how it tastes. Those grown in Italy tend to have a fruitier flavor than others, while beans which grow in volcanic rich soils, such as those in Indonesia, are often strong, but smooth, in taste.
With so much to choose from, the coffee lover is spoiled for choice. It can take a long time to find the perfect blend, strength and bean, as each individual has their own favorite. One thing that is certain is that a nice cup of coffee can really ensure that the day ends up being a good one.
