    hey everyone
    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!

    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.

    I think last time I was at Takashimaya, they had western coffee in the food hall...in addition to the very poor quality stuff in the "Nescafe" stand!

    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 !!
