Caffè crema

Caffè crema refers to two different coffee drinks: An old name for espresso (1940s and 50s). A long espresso drink primarily served in Switzerland and Austria and northern Italy (1980s onwards), along the Italian/ Swiss and Italian/ Austrian border. As a colorful term it generally means “espresso”, while in technical discussions, referring to the long drink, it may more narrowly be referred to as Swiss caffè crema.
