I believe that all coffee lovers are aware that coffee can bring a feeling of elegancy and romantice to us, for me, I have read a love story of Irish coffee, which is the origin of Irish coffee.
A bartender working in the Irish Berlin Airport comes across a pretty airline hostess, the bartender is attracted by the temperament of the airline hostess which is like a bottle of whisky. Each time the plane of the airline hostess lands in Irish Berlin Airport, she will go to the bar, order a cup of coffee according to her mood.She only likes coffee rather than alcohol, but the bartender is so good at making whisky, he is eager to make a cup of whisky for her. So he think up an idea, after he tries for several times, he finally successfully blends coffee with whisky perfectly, which is called Irish coffee.
He adds Irish coffee into the menu,the airline hostess still doesn't find that there's a new kind of coffee in the menu, but the bartender does not remind her. Finally, one day after a year, the airline hostess finds Irish coffee. The bartender is so exicited that his tear running on his face. For hidding his tear, he carefully draws a circle on the coffee cup. So the first taste of the Irish coffee is yearning, Irish coffee is also named "the tear of angel".
The airline hostess becomes the first customer of Irish coffee, because the bartender prepares two menus, one just for the airline hostess. The airline hostess falls in love with the Irish coffee that the bartender prepares for her, she intends to order a cup of Irish coffee as long as she arrives at Irish Berlin Airport. Gradually, they are more and more familiar with each other, and the airline hostess would like to tell funny stories happened in other countries, the bartender would teach her how to make Irish coffee. Until one day, the airline hostess tells him that she decides to quit her job, their story eventually comes to an end.
After the airline hostess comes back to San Francisco, she is so eager to drink a cup of Irish coffee, but she can hardly find a coffee shop that has Irish coffee. She suddenly is aware that the Irish coffee is specially prepared for her. Afterwards, she opens the a coffee shop which also sells Irish coffee. This is the story of Irish coffee, that's why Irish coffee is also popular in San Francisco.
For one way valve Irish coffee is more than just a cup of coffee, for me, it is also the taste of yearning!
