(I did a post the other day (Click Here (baristabanterblog.blogspot.com)) about the Ethiopian coffee ceremony. I'm interested to know other coffee-making traditions around the world because how people drink their coffee really says a lot about who they are. In my article, I discuss how Ethiopians compare to Americans when it comes to drinking coffee, and what that says about their values, and who they really are.

I am not really concerned with coffee consumption around the world, however Popcorn Consumption does intrigue me.

Ethiopians have their coffee with a side of toasted barley, peanuts or popcorn. They also take their coffee with salt (some of them anyway). Different right? Maybe I oughta question my coffee and donut routine?

Coffee and doughnut a match made in heaven, don't you dare rethink it!

Popcorn consumption, sadly like many other forms of food, commercially, we are limited to only "yellow" or "white". How sad, there are so many other varities of popcorn but they tend to be hard to find.

Well, the Finnish make a special kind of cheese to go with (or in) their coffee. We have it in Norway too, but it's more used in the northern part of Norway, so don't expect most Norwegians to know about it at all.

I found the Finnish one on wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leip%C3%A4juusto), the Norwegian one is traditionally made out of goat's milk.

I once tasted a coffee cheese that was smoked with juniper tree smoke, and it was delicious!

In Nepal and Tibet there is Mustang Coffee, which is coffee mixed with rakshi, a local whiskey made by distilling fermented millet (or other grains), and sugar if you like. Rakshi is a bit like moonshine, definately not what you'd call "smooth". I've had Mustang Coffee a few times, made with instant coffee and water that tasted a bit like the burning yak dung it had been heated over. I can't recommend it.
