Drinking in Slovenia: Coffee and tea


In Slovenia, coffee (kava) usually means a tiny cup of strong Turkish coffee, and cafes (kavarna) are a common sight with a basic cup costing ?1.00-?1.50.


One can also order coffee with milk (kava z mlekom) or whipped cream (kava s smetano).

Coffee culture is wide-spread in Slovenia, and one can see Slovenes with friends sitting in the same café for hours.

Tea (čaj) is nowhere near as popular, and if they do drink it (mostly in the winter), Slovenes prefer all sorts of fruit-flavored and herbal teas over a basic black cup.

Tea is served with honey and lemon by request.
