Instead of milk, many espresso beverages use sugar, flavored syrups, or even cream. Every espresso and milk drink, regardless of quantity, gets a double dose of espresso.
One espresso shot is combined with 6-8 ounces of steaming milk and topped with froth if desired. A Flat White is a coffee without foam.
The 2:1 ratio of espresso to milk in an espresso macchiato results in a stronger espresso taste. A rich shot (or shots) of espresso topped with frothed milk.
Adding milk to an espresso does not make it an espresso anymore. It turns into a new drink with distinct characteristics. Straight espresso may be too bitter for some people, so you can add a touch of sugar to it to make it sweeter. When you order a latte, you'll have a much creamier, milky taste with less of an espresso kick.
As a very basic description, the espresso brewing process gets the best parts of coffee without the worst of its taste. Espresso should be drunk right away because it loses quality quickly.
Most people drink espresso because it is rich and tasty. The water is meant to cleanse your palate before the first sip so you may experience the espresso more fully. It's traditionally drank with a light sprinkle of sugar on top, not breaking the crema surface, or served with a slice of lemon peel after a meal.
