Hello everyone! :)
As you may all know my love for coffee is indescribable! No words can ever depict. It’s literally a drink from the gods for me hehe I cannot start my morning without a good cup of coffee in my hands! It also helps me relax. The aroma the taste, it’s all so comforting for me. People have specific habits, stuffed toys, a four leaf clover etc.. I have my cup of coffee (*^_^*)
I’m just going to give you a run down on the different types of coffee. I suggest getting comfy before we even begin hehe :P
Espresso- Espresso is served in small demitasse-style cup. Not generally the roast of the coffee beans, but the way it’s prepared. Blended with several roast of coffee beans, grounded, tamped, the high pressured water is then forced to extract all the flavour from the coffee beans into the small demitasse-style cup, its unique taste is bold and potent, when served alone.
Americano- A watered down version of an Espresso
Ristretto- ¾ ounces (22ml) of a single espresso shot
Doppio-A double shot of an espresso using the two portafilters (which is the part to the coffee machine where coffee is held in and tamped with prior the brewing process) 2 ounces (60ml)
Macchiato-A shot of Espresso with a layer of milk froth
Con Panna-A shot of Espresso with a layer of whipped cream
Cappuccino- A shot of Espresso with lots of steamed milk and a little of milk froth. Garnished with chocolate sprinkles
Dry Cappuccino-A shot of Espresso with less steamed milk and a lot more milk froth.With chocolate sprinkles.
Flat white- A shot of Espresso with steamed milk
Irish- A shot of Espresso with a dash of Irish whisky served with cream on top
Latte-Like the Flat white, it contains more milk then Espresso
Mocha-Like the Latte, chocolate mixture is added before the brewing process
Marocchino- Served in a small glass, it is one shot of Espresso, cocoa powder and milk froth
Vienna Coffee-Two shots of Espresso. Using whipped cream to infuse the Espresso together. Fill up to the brim of a standard size cup of coffee.
There are different types of Ice Coffee out there too. Which is basically the cold version of the hot coffee’s I described above. It’s better to pre-make ice coffee cubes (using ice cube trays) to prevent normal ice cubes from diluting the coffee and ruining/weakening the taste.
So there you have it! The different types of coffee out there. If you know any that you would like to give an honourable mention to, please comment down below! Or if your favourite is already mentioned above, comment down below and tell us why it’s your favourite!
