Do you drink the same coffee every day? And… do you do it at home?

Other types of coffee

Often, depending on where you are in the world, professional baristas will have different coffees adapted to the geographical area. For example, Russian coffee is made up of coffee and vokda and Viennese coffee is made up of coffee, milk and whipped cream. Others are not coffees per se, but also have variants of caramel, vanilla, and other exotic additions. Order them to take away or attend the tastings that some cafes carry out so you don’t miss them.

Coffee size to go

Takeaway coffees are available in different sizes. It is common for the glasses to be small, medium or large, but everything will adapt to the shape that you like the most. If you like a well-concentrated coffee, ask for it small. If, on the other hand, you like to mix it with milk and foam, think of a medium one to take away and if you enjoy it iced, take the largest glass you can find and enjoy your drink for a long time.

What about the milk?

Perhaps you have also felt very overwhelmed by the different milks that are available to put in your coffee. Beyond flavored or creamy or liquid textures, alternatives have emerged for foodies and some common illnesses. One is lactose intolerance, which is easy to resolve with lactose-free milk. On the other hand, soy milk comes to replace that from animals as a solution for vegans.

How to transport it?

Another important element is how to have our coffee to go without burning yourself. These drinks are designed to last a long time, but not extremely hot either. The solution so far is to ask for a strong paper cup with a plastic lid, plus a paper or cardboard tape to separate your fingers from the cup. The most comfortable option may also be to bring your own thermos, which will also better preserve the taste, aroma and heat of your drink.
