About Coffee

Italian coffee is popular around the world. Espresso is also the base for various coffee drinks. In the following guide you will learn more about coffee by exploring some of the most commonly consumed types of coffee drinks.

Espresso

Espresso is a famous type of coffee from Italy. You make it by forcing high-pressure steam through ground coffee beans. The final product is a thick coffee with an extremely rich taste, giving an acidic taste with the flavor of nuts and cocoa beans. Espresso is also the base for various coffee drinks and by adding milk or foamed milk you can enjoy different types of coffee. Espresso is brown and red in color, with a layer of fine and glossy coffee fat (a creamy foam), meaning that the coffee beans are fresh to brew.

Cappuccino

Like caffe latte, cappuccino also consists of espresso and milk. The ratio of milk to foamed milk is 1:1. Cappuccino is a thick and creamy coffee with a distinct texture; you can serve it sprinkled with cocoa powder or cinnamon for a richer taste.

Caffe Latte

Don’t mix up latte with caffe latte. Latte refers to “milk” in Italian; if you order a cup of latte in Italy you will only get a cup of milk. Caffe latte consists of a higher proportion of milk, giving you a more balanced flavor of espresso. For people who do not like the rich taste of espresso, caffe latte would be a good choice.

Americano

A caffè Americano is an Italian term for American coffee. It is believed that the name comes from U.S. soldiers in Italy during the World War Two, who used water to ration the scarce amounts of espresso available at the time. The base of the Americano is an espresso. An amount of hot water is poured over it to make the espresso weaker, turning a small shot into a large cup of coffee.

Mocha

Mocha is a small town located in Yemen in the Middle East and is famous for its chocolate-flavor coffee beans. Later, mocha came to refer to coffee beans with a chocolate flavor, but now mocha is more widely known as the name of a drink. Like caffe latte, caffe mocha consists of milk and espresso, with the addition of chocolate sauce and cream on top, giving a rich and sweet taste.

Macchiato

Macchiato is an espresso shot with a small dash of milk. Macchiato means “spot” and “embellishment” in Italian. An espresso macchiato is an espresso crowned with a small dome of milk or foamed milk, while latte macchiato refers to milk marked with expresso. Although both have the same ingredients, milk and espresso, they offer a different experience. Espresso macchiato tastes rich and thick, while latte macchiato is milkier with a creamy taste.
