There are many types of coffee, and it is often silly to distinguish them. When you go to a coffee shop, do you stare at a bunch of unfamiliar coffee types and hesitate?
Will you ask the waiter which is better? Here are some brief introductions.
Espresso is the most intense of all common types of coffee. It originated in Italy and is generally used as a base for other coffees such as lattes, cappuccinos, etc.
A serving of espresso is very small, usually just a small glass, and you can drink it in one sip! But because of the low moisture content, the coffee is extremely concentrated, with a strong flavor and a very rich color.
2. Espresso Macchiato
Macchiatos often add a layer of milk foam to the espresso, and the sweet milk foam dilutes the bitter taste of the espresso.
American coffee is black coffee made from a siphon pot, a French press, etc. It can also be made by adding a lot of water to espresso, and the taste is relatively mild.
4. Flat White
White coffee does not mean that this coffee is white, but is made by adding milk to espresso, which is full of a milky aroma and does not hurt the stomach.
5. Coffee Latte
Made with espresso as a base, with the addition of boiled foamed milk, it smells full of aroma. Some senior baristas also pull out many very nice patterns on it.
Compared with the softness of cappuccino, the latte has less milk foam and a stronger milk aroma, which is more suitable for a cup at breakfast.
Latte in Italian actually means milk. If you have the opportunity to travel to Italy, then when you order a latte at a local cafe, you must say the full name (Caffè Latte), otherwise, if you only say Latte, the barista will really serve you a glass of milk!
6. Espresso Con Panna
Campanile is espresso topped with whipped cream. The shape is very good-looking, like ice cream, but the calorie of the cream is very high, so it is best for dieters not to touch it.
7. Cafe Breve
This coffee is a mixture of half milk and half cream on top of espresso, or with a little milk froth.
A cappuccino has denser milk foam. The coffee flavor is relatively light, but the milk flavor is also very strong, and the taste is softer than a latte. If you like to drink soft foam, then cappuccino is your first choice.
9. Caffè Mocha
Combining coffee, milk, fresh cream, and chocolate, it has a smooth and rich taste. If you like the taste of chocolate, then Mocha will definitely satisfy your taste buds! Moreover, Mocha has a strong sense of hierarchy and has captured the hearts of many people in terms of appearance.
10. Caramel Macchiato
It's a macchiato with caramel, espresso, vanilla, and caramel in hot milk.
11. Viennese Coffee
Sprinkle sugar on the bottom of the warm coffee, then pour in the hot black coffee, and finally, put the decorative cream on the surface of the coffee.
If you like to drink black coffee or like to match the ratio of coffee to milk casually and do not need milk froth, the Moka pot is a good choice for home use.
American-style pots are more suitable for places such as dormitories and offices that cannot be heated by fire and are suitable for people who like weaker coffee.
The espresso machine is for those who like the sensory stimulation of Espresso. If you like all kinds of fancy coffee, you can make it into a cappuccino, latte, etc.
It is the representative work of the second wave of the popularization of coffee culture in the world. There are many ways to play, and more people know coffee as Italian coffee.
