This is one of the most famous of all Austrian beverages, and its popularity is such that one need not go to Austria to sample it. It is obtainable in many restaurants and is simple to make, although much depends on the quality of the coffee. It can be served either hot or cold.
To a cup of strong black coffee add a little milk and sugar, and on the top put about 1 tablespoon of whipped cream, sweetened with a little sugar. The contrast of the hot coffee and the cold whipped cream is very pleasant. The coffee is sometimes served iced, with the cold whipped cream over it.
