"Renversé" ? Is that comparable to what I during a whole night continually got served by a major of our regiment when we had to "guard" a phone where not a single call came in. The coffee was swimming on top of the Schnaps and gave the liquid a coffee-like colour I nevertheless felt secure as being with a major makes a lot of a difference !
No, those have other names!

Renversé here means a milky coffee in a cup, similar to a Grand Crème in France, or a Cappuccino without the froth. You don't hear the term as often anymore, with all the fashion for Italian styles and names for coffee these days. The name came from the way you up-ended a shot of coffee into the warm milk in a cup.
