Crimean coffee shops now selling 'Caffé Americano' as 'Caffé Russiano'
In some coffee shops in Crimea, Ukraine, you can no longer order a "Caffé Americano" as it is now called "Caffé Crimea", US business and technology news website Business Insider reported Nov. 7.
"Attention! Given the current geopolitical situation, we no longer have 'the Americano.' Please ask for the 'Crimea coffee'," a coffee shop alerted customers to the change.
Another coffee machine was advertising the "Russiano", Business Insider said.
An Americano is espresso mixed with hot water.
American soldiers in Italy reportedly created the drink during World War II to make European espresso taste more like the coffee they were used to back home.
