Enjoying Coffee In Europe

You know I love my Starbucks, but when I travel out of the country I do like to try local coffee shops. On my last trip, I enjoyed some delicious coffee in Europe.

Enjoying Coffee in Europe

The day we arrive started with a hit of airplane coffee,
made tolerable with a spike of Starbucks Via®.

Airplane Coffee + Via

 I only used about 1/2 packet so I could enjoy real coffee later.

We landed at 7 am, checked into the airport hotel, showered and changed,
caught a train into the city, and had just enough time for breakfast before our meeting.

The next day, I was so impressed by my client’s coffee service,
I shamelessly took this picture.

Coffee In Copenhagen

At first I thought that little white square was sugar. Nope! It was dark chocolate!

 Licorice is big in Copenhagen, so I had to try a licorice latte.

 It was made with a pour of licorice syrup on the bottom, then espresso, then milk.
I thought it was good, but a little went a long way.

I enjoyed all this coffee in Europe, but as we started our long trek home,
I wasn’t too disappointed to see a Starbucks near our gate.

  3. Coffee in Europe is what got me hooked on an Americano. I’m super plain when it comes to coffee. But I love that Europeans take their coffee seriously. I never thought to add a Via to mediocre coffee. Cool idea.

  4. You really do get around! The coffee in Europe just always tastes better to me. I feel so sophisticated when I drink it-LOL. It prob tastes better bc they don’t have skim milk.

  5. I like my coffee plain and simple. Preferably iced with some milk or a cafe au lait. I love having coffee in Europe. Why does it taste so much more delicious? And airplane coffee is the worst. That’s such a great idea to add a Starbucks via!

  8. I’ll always remember the latte that I ordered in Florence where the foam was shaped like a heart. Not totally uncommon but special because I was in Italy.
