Spain is a Nation of Coffee Drinkers
" Have you ever seen a group of Spaniards ordering their coffee in a bar? One wants it served in a glass, another in a cup, one wants sugar and the other saccharin. Then there’s the one that wants only a little coffee, while another prefers room-temperature milk. No two orders are ever the same!"
How to order the many types of coffee in Spain
"When the Spanish order a coffee in the morning, they appear to be speaking in code. It's rarely just 'coffee' (or 'café' in Spanish). These are the terms you're going to have to get to grips with if you want to keep your head above water in a Spanish 'cafeteria."
"Coffee and espresso drinks are some of the most widely consumed beverages in the world, and the manner in which they are ordered and prepared differs according to countries, backgrounds or the baristas' habits."
