                Don’t let the name fool you, this Naked Birthday Cake recipe from What’s Gaby Cooking might be free from thick layers of frosting, but it’s anything but bare in flavor.

                      The only difference here is taste. And when it comes to coffee, taste matters. A lot.

                      Most of the methods and ingredients from the chart above dates back hundreds of years and have been traditionally passed down from generation to generation. Hence, it’s actually possible to tell where a person came from based on the type of coffee he or she drinks!
