Re: What is the local name of COFFEE in your country?
coffee = kopi
that`s what coffee calls in my country, in my region coffee = kupi.
right, in south africa we have 11 official languages, but in afrikaans (which derives from Dutch)
its called KOFFIE = COFFEE
some of the older generation gave it funny names like
BOERE TROOS = FARMERS COMFORT
SWART GAT = BLACK HOLE
regardless if you add cream or not...hope to see more!!!
some people have pearly whites.....others drink coffee!
In danish it's "Kaffe".
Usually drank very black or acompanied by a little cream or white sugar. ("Sort Kaffe" = Black Coffee, "fløde"[floede] = cream, "sukker" = Sugar).
That's about that!
i''m from germany and here we say just Kaffee. so if you want to get your

ich will einer hochwertig kaffee
bonnah for Ethiopia ,
Boon for Sudan
Ethiopia , where coffee comes from!
But not quite Coffee as the westerners know it....the preparation method is "unique" and it's often served with Condensed milk. I used to come across it more often in Singapore in the past, but nowadays when i go to Singapore, the more typical Western Coffee is served...except at the food halls.

DaveC is right. Singapore has certainly chnged a lot on the last 10 years when talking coffee. International chains (Starbucks, CB, Dome and Spinelli's) compete with local equivalents such as The Coffee Conesieur serving coffee as most from America or Europe know it. However the Kopitiams- the traditional coffee houses serving Kopi-o, Kopi kosong etc still control roughly 85% of the retail coffee consumed in Singapore.

hey wait a moment!!
In italy is caffè (generic) - just espresso at the bar
In thailand sounds like Cafè
Cafè ron mean hot coffee
Cafè yen mean iced or cold coffee
sometimes at my wife shop people ask for "please one cafè capucino moka" and with a lot of embarrassment we have to ask an explanation !!
