Are you a fan of caffè latte? Are you in Holland (The Netherlands)?
If you answer yes to above questions then you must continue reading. Visit any cafe or restaurant in the Netherlands and you are sure to notice someone ordering a “koffie verkeerd”.
“Koffie verkeerd” is the Dutch version of a caffè latte. It is traditionally a hot cup of coffee with a lot of warm milk, but is most commonly served as an espresso with a lot of steamed milk and some froth. Koffie verkeerd means ‘wrong coffee’, because normal coffee would contain a dash of milk instead of the almost 50/50 ratio. If you like milk in your coffee, order a koffie verkeerd with your breakfast or as an afternoon treat. The Dutch almost always serve a little cookie with your coffee, which is a charming addition to this milky caffeinated delight.
