3 Unbelievable International Coffees
If you’ve ever wondered what the rest of the world is having with their coffee, you may be surprised to know it’s not often candy flavored half and half or chocolate syrup and ice. In fact, the way we drink our coffee may be just as shocking to other cultures as their trends are to us. Here are a few international coffees that certainly raised our curiosity.
Vietnamese Egg Coffee
Condensed milk and egg yolks are whipped together to form a thick cream before black coffee is poured through the froth and sinks to the bottom. This delightful coffee-flavored custard is a popular coffee beverage found in many cafés around Hanoi.
Taiwanese Selfie Coffee
Let’s Café, a chain of coffee shops in Taiwan will print actual, real-life selfies right on top of your coffee. The singular machine they use to do this is one of a kind, so if you want to stare into your own eyes while you sip your java, you may be doing some international traveling. Pro-tip; save money on traveling by just looking in a mirror while you’re drinking.
Vanilla Flavored Monkey Spit
Taiwanese Formosan Rock Monkeys destroyed whole crops of coffee beans by sucking on the cherries and spitting out the pits, that is until a local farmer discovered that the monkey-mouthed beans retained a distinct vanilla flavor.
