    While the standard espresso drinks in the States consist of a macchiato, cappuccino, red eye, latte, etc., when you peek around the corner at how the rest of the world takes their coffee, you’ll be impressed at the variety. In Italy, Espresso Romano consists of a lemon slice dropped in an espresso. In Austria, a Wiener Melange layers a cup of espresso, an egg yolk, brown sugar and whipped cream. In Spain, honey gets topped with an espresso, steamed milk and cinnamon.

    Yet this inforgraphic delves just a little deeper than that, providing acute bits of coffee culture. For instance, Italian coffee bars aren’t meant for socializing and laptop camping, as it’s customary for patrons to drink coffee standing up. As for forgetful husbands who forget to fill the family coffee pot? This used to be a veritable reason for a wife to divorce her husband in Turkey. Yikes.

    Thanks for posting sobore! One can only wonder if foodbeast.com is following the coffee string on Milepoint! ;)

    I've had the pleasure of flying Austrian Airlines' business class twice in the last couple of years. After meal service, a chef-hatted cook gives you a menu of well over a dozen of specialty coffees, that are then made fresh for business class passengers. A very memorable experience!
