Not exactly a drink on its own, Espresso is a base for many coffee creations. Espresso is a result of including ground coffee beans to nearly boiling water. A shot-sized amount is required to make other drinks. Espresso is thicker than other brews and is highly concentrated coffee.
One of the most popular coffee drinks, an Americano only consists of coffee and water in a 2:1 ratio. All you need to make this drink is espresso, made from a trusty espresso machine and hot water. This beverage is classic and is appreciated by those who love strong cups of coffee without milk, cream or sugar.
As its name suggests, this drink is an iced coffee made to refresh you anywhere, any time. To make a cold brew, grind coffee beans till a coarse coffee powder is formed. In a container, add this powder with water and refrigerate for up to 12 hours. Then add ice to the mix and enjoy your delicious cold brew. This drink is particularly good in the summers and during hot afternoons.
A cappuccino is a staple on every café’s menu card. This drink consists of milk, froth/foam and espresso, all in equal quantities. Result: a creamy and frothy coffee drink that is slightly sweet and yet bitter. You can also prepare this drink at home. All you need is hot milk, espresso and a frothing machine for the froth part of the drink.
Latte or Caffe Latte is an Italian coffee drink made from steamed milk, espresso, and cream. A latte has been the poster child for coffee drinks for ages. This is the same popular drink that contains creamy latte art of hearts and many other sweet shapes.
Popular at a breakfast spread, a Flat White is a delicious coffee drink that can be very easily confused with a Latte. Made with espresso and steamed milk, this drink does not contain added froth but sports a “flat” layer of hot milk instead.
Mocha or Caffe Mocha is a type of latte with the added sweetness of chocolate. Usually served in a glass, this drink is generally tall and contains foam on top of it with a drizzle of chocolate powder or sauce.
Irish Coffee is a culmination of a double espresso, whiskey, whipped cream and sugar. This drink is warmer as it contains the headiness of whiskey and perfectly suits cold evenings or the winter season. Irish coffee is also perfect for a post-meal drink.
