It is very typical to order a “Pitufo Mixto”, a coffee for example “Sombra” and an orange juice “Zumo de naranja”.  The Malaguenos call their type of bread “Pitufo”, Sombra is one of the 10 different types of Málaga coffee made of a little bit more milk than coffee and the “Zumo de naranja” people love to drink fast before the breakfast. Orange juice is always fresh pressed in every breakfast place in Málaga. Furthermore the orange season started and you can get the most tasty fruit juices now in the winterseason.

If you go on traveling in Andalusia or Spain it is important to know that the different types of coffee and bread names like Pitufo are only used and known in the province Málaga. The neighbour province like Cádiz do not use this words, they have other descriptions for their bread and coffee.
