Known for its distinctive kick and incomparable strength, Café Cubano is a cultural staple as it speaks loudly about Cuban culture and Western history. The Cuban soil has always been ideal for coffee, but coffee only started being grown and brewed in Cuba by the end of the 1700s when the Haitian Revolution exploded and the French colonialists moved to Cuba. At the time, Cuban plantations consisted mainly of sugar cane. Once the French started growing coffee the mix of these two commodities gave birth to Café Cubano.  Directions,  Café Cubano must be made on a Moka pot or espresso machine....

Disney tends to stay true to local traditions and consequently, they included various scenes in Encanto of children drinking coffee. This subject is a hot take. Allowing children to drink coffee is for many considered a risky move, but in all reality it’s been done for a very long time. Not too long ago, coffee was ordered by doctors as medicine for various conditions even to treat children.

Cheese and Coffee? The Unique Recipe You Must Try

Johanna Duncan

The pandemic had us trying all sorts of exotic and yet simple coffee recipes. The Dalgona coffee had even coffee non-believers obsessed over what a few drops of hot water can do to instant coffee.  The relationship between coffee and cheese is quite a long one and interestingly, this recipe is used widely throughout the world. The Scandinavians and South Americans have been doing it for quite some time now and yet this trend has not really picked up in America. Have we even tried it? Perhaps someone in Wisconsin gave it a shot at some point?  While the idea...

There’s never enough ways to thank our fathers. So much of their work and effort for us goes largely unnoticed, but there’s no father out there who doesn’t sacrifice out of love for their children. Having one day to celebrate them is more about having a day to reflect on this and show appreciation. Undoubtedly, fathers are the ultimate influencers. On that note, I made myself a large cappuccino and thought of all the ways my dad and other father figures have shaped me for the best.  For starters, my dad taught me to wake up early and work.
