Different Parisian Ways to Prepare Coffee This Winter

January 02, 2021
It's wintertime! Any day now, snow will start falling, the temperature will go down, and the fashionable streets of Paris will see a myriad of coats, jackets, scarves, and more! Not to mention, of course, cafés will be packed for sure! Even if the pandemic still looms large, a lot of people will likely still want to go to the nearest coffee shop and get a cup for themselves. How else will they stay warm in the winter? Though even if you should stay home this season, there's no stopping you from getting your share of a Parisian coffee. Here are some ways to make them!
Different Parisian Ways to Prepare Coffee This Winter

Un Déca

Here in Paris, you only have to sat 'déca' and the guy at the coffee shop will instantly know what you want. Though coffee is, primarily, to walk you up, that's not the main (or the only) reason why Parisians love it. They do so because, most especially during the winter season, it keeps them warm. So if you want a cup of coffee that won't necessarily perk you up more than you need to, go for a cup of decaf! With less to no caffeine, you're sure to stay warm, get that signature bitter taste, and still allow you to sleep when you want to!

Un Café Crème

You shouldn’t feel ashamed if you're not into black coffee. Though a lot of Parisians are, the truth of the matter is, black coffee is extremely bitter! So much so that not a lot of people would prefer it. Not to mention the fact that many like theirs creamier so that they can pair all sorts of pastries with it! Paris is a city of sweets, after all! So having your coffee with crème is not something to be ashamed of! If you're a man, it's not a girly drink to order/make yourself. If you're a woman, preferring coffee with cream doesn't make you dainty at all! It's just coffee!

Un Café Allongé

Simply put, café allongé is a cross between an espresso and an Americano. It's not as bitter as the former but also not as light as the latter. Some would say it's just right, which is probably why a lot of people prefer it and that it satisfied event the discriminatory tastes of Parisians. There are multiple ways to do it in order to complicate the flavors. One is to add more water, helping balance the notes out to make it less dark and heavy. And another is the complete opposite—adding a double shot of espresso! Whichever way you go, there's no denying that this type of coffee is quintessentially Parisian!

Un Café Noisette

At times, the cream isn't enough to really sweeten or lighten up your cup of coffee. Here in Paris, cream actually isn't the only addition that can make you your perfect cup. You can also, instead, add milk. And when you do, you're actually making a café noisette. While the English translation of 'noisette' is hazelnut, there are no hazelnuts in this recipe. But rather, the taste of the combination of milk with espresso makes for a similar taste. A unique flavor that's to exactly cocoa, not exactly chocolate, and definitely not hazelnut!

Un Café Américain

The way the French like their coffee to that of the American's is totally different. But that doesn't mean the latter doesn't appreciate the former. After all, a lot of American tourists enjoy going to the most charming cafés in Paris, most of the time because of the coffee. And this is mostly because Pariains also know how to filter their cups the way their American counterparts like them! This is what they call café américain. By diluting the strong taste of espresso, you're able to make coffee the Parisian way but just how the Americans enjoy them! Pretty cool, right?
