A favorite item on the menu in Israel coffeehouses is café hafuch (upside-down coffee). Café Hafuch is a cross between cappuccino and café latte but made in reverse. In a latte and cappuccino, the milk goes on top of the espresso. A café hafuch uses steamed milk on the bottom, and then a shot of espresso on top. Finally, it’s topped with milk froth.
