ORDERING A COFFEE IN SPAIN

ORDERING A 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.

Café Solo – espresso

Café Doble – double espresso

Café con Leche – coffee with milk, usually half and half proportionally, but it depends on the region

Café Cortado – espresso with a dash of milk

Café con Hielo – espresso with ice

Carajillo – espresso with a drop of brandy, whiskey or rum

Trifasico – Carajillo with a bit of milk, a Catalan speciality

Café Bonbon – Café Solo with condensed sweet milk

Café Manchada – a glass of milk flavoured with a bit of coffee

Café Americano – large black coffee or Café Solo with more water added

Café Suizo – coffee topped with whipped cream

Café Caramel – espresso with condensed milk

Descafeinado – decaffeinated coffee

As you can imagine, the above list does not include all types of Spanish coffee, but I’m sure it’s a helpful guide for beginners.
