Coffee. Café. Kava. Call it what you will, but on average, the Dutch drink 2.4 cups of koffie a day. And unsurprisingly, much like the Inuits’ lengthy collection of words for snow, the Dutch have a multitude of ways to refer to a cup of their favorite drink.  Here are a few for you to use as you travel from city to city, sip to sip.

  1. Key: “Een” think of the word “lane” without the L.  We’ll write it as “ayn”.
    2. The letter “g” is pronounced in the back of the throat like the Scottish pronunciation of “Loch Ness” or the German “Bach”.  We’ll write it as “hh”.
