What better aroma can there be? (Apart from bacon, of course!)
Now, I might be a Brit, but I do like my coffee. Tea, of course, is my regular breakfast tipple, but throughout the rest of the day, coffee is king.
We’re lucky to have some wonderful coffee houses nearby, each and every one of them somehow entice me in with the sound of rushing steam and clinking coffee cups. Whilst I’ll take my usual ‘café con leche’ at most venues, there is one place that compels me to have a Viennese coffee.
It’s downright rude to refuse!
It’s a popular traditional cream-based coffee beverage, made by preparing two shots of espresso in a standard sized coffee cup and infusing the coffee with whipped cream (as a replacement for milk and sugar) until the cup is full. Then the cream is twirled and optionally topped off with chocolate sprinklings. (Although, optionally is not a recognised part of my vocabulary in this instance!) The coffee is drunk through the cream top, and you simply have to eat the remaining foam with a spoon once all the liquid has gone.
Have I tempted you to try one?
Afterwards, the world is a much better place – trust me!
