Viennese melange

The term melange ( French: mélange "mixture") is used for various coffee beverages with milk .

The Wiener Melange (short: Melange ) is an Austrian coffee specialty. It consists of one part of coffee (e.g. espresso ) and one part of milk and a cap of frothed milk. It was first offered in Vienna around 1830.

In Switzerland, a café mélange or kafi melange is coffee with a top of whipped cream. The whipped cream is then garnished with a coffee bean. The whipped cream is often served separately in a bowl.

In the Netherlands, Wiener Melange is understood to mean either a coffee drink that is prepared with sugared egg yolk or a coffee drink similar to the Austrian variant, but hot cocoa is used instead of milk.

Nescafé, Mövenpick and Lufthansa Catering serve a Viennese melange coffee with added cocoa. Usually, but not necessarily, it contains a dash of milk or milk foam.
