The espresso in your coffee shop is the groundwork for different types of beverages. Find out more about this classic type of coffee.
Espresso is a condensed brown beverage that is formed by pushing hot water into coffee beans which have been roasted and ground into a fine powder. Compared to most drinks of the same type, it normally has twice the amount of coffee and half of the water in it. A great cup of this brew will come with some “crema” (a light layer of foam) on top. A single shot is sold in serving sizes of 1 to 1.5 ounces.
The core shot itself has a number of variations. Espresso Con Panna is a single shot that has a mix of heavy cream. Espresso Longo (or a Long) has about two times as much water compared to the single shot. Espresso Risrentto (or a Short) is a drink that is denser than the single shot so it does not taste as bitter. Finally, the Espresso Romano is a single shot with some lemon in it.
Your coffee shop may or may not have the larger type of beverages, so feel free to ask your barista for their availability. The most popular large espresso is the Cappuccino. It is formed by adding an equal amount of frothed milk, steamed milk and the single shot. The classic version of this drink does not include the steamed milk.
How many ways can you make a Cappuccino? Let us take a look at the following:
Americano – This is a single shot mixed with water. This beverage is usually combined with sugar and milk.
Caffe Latte – It is a single shot mixed with steamed milk, where the ratio of espresso and milk is 1:3. You can find Lattes normally laced with Italian syrups and are either topped with chocolate powder or frothed milk.
Caffe Mocha – This is like is Cafe Latte but it is topped with chocolate in the form of syrup or powder. This coffee shop drink may have chocolate flakes or whipped cream added to it.
