In Spain, when you want an espresso with a few drops of milk you call that a “cut” coffee. My father, who liked to make jokes, went once to a coffee shop in a northern city where people is pretty serious and asked for a “cut”, but, he said, a vertical one. The barman looked a little annoyed but prepared him the “cut”saying nothing.
Days after that my father was in Madrid and tried the same joke in another bar.
– Please I want a “cut” coffee, but I want it vertical
– And where do you want your milk, at the right side or at the left side?, answered the barman instantly.
