Hi there!

For the love of coffee, I would like to know how coffee is called worldwide. For example, In the Philippines the local term of coffee is "KAPE"

How about in your country?

You participation will be much appreciated
Here and in Malaysia (and sometimes Singapore) its "Kopi". You also have "Kopi Bubuk" (powdered or instant coffee), "Kopi Susu" (coffee with milk), "Kopi Tarik" (more malaysian/singaporean- coffee pulled in a long pour through a sock), "Kopi Tubuk" (coffee made from fine grinds in a tall glass- similar in ways to Turkish coffee...and finally "Kopi Luwak"...needs no explanation! :shock:

Coffee Name

Here in rural Northeastern Maryland, USA those with an IQ above room temperature call it coffee. The rest of us just point at the urn and make grunting noises.
