Espresso coffee is really difficult to order, isn't it?
What are all these? Are they still espresso coffee? Yes, they are the same, in fact, they are merely a spin off from espresso. We would give a short brief on the type of gourmet coffees that people are ordering and invite you to submit coffees, which are not listed here (and we know for a fact, that there are a plenty).
This is because, we are in the process of compiling a comprehensive guide on espresso coffee and with your input, this book could only get better. For this information, I would also shared my thoughts on how to get free coffee, by sending you this ebook on the tips and tricks on how to get free coffee, I know that you would definitely find it very useful.
Having said so many things, do you know what is an espresso? It is a coffee that is intensified and produced by coordinating factors that includes the blend, the roast, the grind, the temperature, the pressure, the time and of course the brewing method.
The end result is, it has more of everything that your usual coffee has, more aroma, more body and more taste.
Lets learned about some of the coffee shops ordering terms that you have heard but are clueless about. If you heard of people ordering Americano, they are going to get 6 ounce of espresso diluted with water.
Have you heard of breve before? Well, breve is made with steam half and half, instead of using milk. So, you would get your breve latte, breve mocha and breve cappuccino.
Another few things that you would hear always being ordered are cafe au lait, cafe mocha and ristretto (of course, cappuccino too, but plenty has been covered in another article, so would not dwell on it), so what are they?
Cafe au lait is simply coffee with milk, another way to call it is caffe latte. Cafe mocha instead of coffee with milk is coffee with chocolate. They are brewed using either cocoa powder or chocolate syrup, usually added at the beginning of preparing the coffee.
Yes, this is not a complete guide to the coffee and espresso glossary that we intend to come out with, and hence, we would look forward to your contribution to any other coffee and espresso terminology...
