Wiener Melange - The most common way of drinking coffee in Germany is the Milchkaffee (German), Schale (Swiss), or Wiener Melange (Austrian). The world’s greatest and oldest cafes are in Vienna, Austria and the traditional cup is the Wiener Melange. This is a normally brewed cup of German or Austrian roast coffee with warm whipped milk. In Vienna this is always served with a small glass of water on the side which is the very old tradition of the Vienna cafes.
To make the traditional Kaffee Milange or Milchkaffee make a brewed cup of coffee (French press is perfect) warm about a cup of milk or half and half in a small pan and while heating whip with an electric mixer. The milk will foam up to more than double and have a thick consistency if you use good milk. Spoon the foamed milk to the top of your cup of coffee. Add a tea spoon of honey or sugar if you like.
