Coffee was introduced by the Arabs. Coffee was known as Kaya in Yemen, which was further named as Kahwa in Turkey. It changed hands and reached Britain and thus begun the Coffee Revolution. It is heard that coffee had then become so popular that 3000 cafes had opened in England in a timespan of just 50 years.

This effectual drink was made using warm water, coffee powder, and sugar. Around 1680, the people of Vienna gave a new touch to coffee. It began to be made using honey and cream. The colour changed to a brownish one, which is now known as cappuccino. This changed style prevails even now. There are numerous kinds of coffee including hot and cold ones.

Coffee works wonders in our daily lifestyles. Whether it is on your breakfast table in the morning or in between your office hours or spending some quality time with your lover, coffee always makes its presence felt. It depends on your preference which coffee you want to have. Mocha, a mixture of dense milk and dark chocolate leaves a sweet taste in your mouth. The balance of coffee and chocolate has to be proper for this. If the quantity of milk is increased in place of chocolate, it becomes a latte, which is a favourite of the French. There are people who do not prefer such dense coffee. On the contrary, they like the bitterness of the espresso with a bit of brown sugar. Italians never begin their day without an espresso. Turkish coffee is black as coal. The dark, dense, sweet, and intense Turkish coffee is generally served after meals. It is now available in many cafes in our city as well. Irish coffee is for people who like to be fancy. It is as if a coffee cocktail- sweet and intense. It comes in a combination of sugar and a little quantity of Irish whiskey. The all-time favourite Cappucino with frothy designs is also there in the list.

Besides hot coffees, cold coffees are equally popular. Cream, ice cream, brownie, choco chips, and a lot more additions are made to iced coffees. Nitrogen infused coffee is also there. Its process is no less than an ordeal. After roasting Kenya coffee beans in medium temperature, it is brewed for 48 hours at 0-5 degrees centigrade. Then this special coffee is mixed with 3-litre cold brew and 3-litre nitrogen gas infused water.

An ideal temperature is required for the water; an alteration in which changes the taste of the coffee. A different kind of technique is needed to make cold coffee. Then only it can excite you with its flavour and aroma.
