When I stumbled upon this infographic of coffee from around the world, I was surprised to see the four varieties attributed to the United States. I’d never seen a cafe breve or red eye listed on any coffee menu until last week, when JB and I popped into a neighborhood coffee shop instead of Starbucks to get some work done.
And I’ve never even heard of a cafe tobio or gibraltar…have you?
Although I haven’t tried the American coffees, I’m familiar with the macchiato (Italy), cafe au lait (France), and Irish coffee (Ireland), as I’m sure you are, too. I’ve also enjoyed plenty of Flat White coffees when I studied abroad in Australia. Mmm…
Another one of my favorites? Cafe con leche from Spain, which, surprisingly, didn’t make this list. One of the most delicious cafe con leche I’ve tasted was actually at a tiny Cuban restaurant across from our hotel in Miami.
Which of these 31 coffees from around the world have you tried?

I’ve seen Cafe Breve before but I can’t remember where. They do red eyes at Starbucks but I think it’s an off-menu item. I’ve heard people order them. maybe you have to grow up with some of these drinks but all of the ones that involve lemon seems really gross to me.
I can vouch for the flat white though. There’s a New Zealand cuisine restaurant near me here in VA that has them. They go well with a pavlova.
Very interesting! At our house we love coffee. Having been a military family and living different places, we have tasted a few of these different types.
Thanks for sharing. : ) Ruth
