What is a Café Calva?

At the end of the 19th cen­tury, it was cus­tom­ary for work­ers and farm­ers to add a drop of Calvados to their morn­ing coffee, to warm them­selves up and summon the energy needed to work in often dif­fi­cult conditions.

This tra­di­tion gradu­ally took hold in French pop­u­lar culture.
