Different types of coffee drinks

Espresso drinks

This is the foundation of all the basics and recipes. Espresso is included in all coffee drinks, responsible for their strength and aroma. If the coffee is of high quality, then the drinks created on its basis will be delicious. A classic espresso requires only 30-35 ml of water.
When making espresso, hot water is supplied under pressure, which is what defines its name - espresso, that is, "under pressure".
Classic Espresso
Espresso drinks
Many popular coffee recipes are based on espresso, a concentrated black coffee that is brewed in a special coffee machine. The very name "espresso" says a lot, above all about the way it is prepared.

The rich taste of this type of coffee drink is achieved as follows: after 8-12 grams of well-roasted finely ground coffee, water heated to almost a boiling point of 92-95 degrees is passed under high pressure. The total amount of drink received should be 30-35 ml.

Intense and temperamental coffee with a dense thick creamy foam. Perfectly invigorates in the morning, opens a second wind in the middle of the working day and allows you to enjoy all the shades of taste and aroma of coffee beans.
Espresso Lungo
Espresso drinks
In Italian, lungo means "long". This is due to the longer preparation time compared to other coffees. More precisely, hot water is poured through the ground coffee in the coffee machine for a little longer than a minute.

Lungo is prepared with a much larger volume of water than espresso - the result is 50-60 ml of the drink. It is often confused with Americano, which is a watered-down espresso, but this is a mistake. The taste has a characteristic bitterness, since a large volume of water extracts components from the coffee (for example, tannins) that do not get into the drink when preparing an espresso.
Lungo is distinguished by density, balance and saturation.
Espresso Americano
Espresso drinks
Americano is a time-tested classic for all black coffee lovers. It is prepared from espresso diluted with hot water in a 1: 1 ratio. Due to this, the drink turns out to be not so strong and rich. But the proportions of espresso and water can be different. The strength is easily regulated by the volume of boiling water.

From the name of the drink, it is easy to conclude that it was invented in America. This is not true. Americano really started to cook for Americans during World War II, but in Italy. In terms of volume and concentration, it resembled the regular filter coffee beloved by Americans.

Milk coffee drinks based on espresso

Most popular milk coffee drinks you can try in coffee shops
Flat white milk coffee drink
Milk coffee drinks
Flat white is a coffee and milk drink invented at the end of the 20th century. Flat white contains more coffee than cappuccino or latte and less milk. The proportion is considered classic: 110 ml of milk per 60 ml of espresso. In addition, there is very little milk froth in flat white coffee, and it is not as fluffy as allowed by the latte recipe.

Flat white is especially popular in the USA, Australia and New Zealand. The last two countries share the right to be called his homeland. It is believed that the English-speaking inhabitants of the Pacific region were looking for something familiar and soft in taste in coffee houses. But the cappuccino seemed to many too frothy. The customers of the cafe asked for a thinner layer of foam, and so an alternative appeared - flat white.
Cappuccino milk coffee drink

Latte milk coffee drink

Difference. A latte coffee drink is a frothy mixture of coffee and milk. For a classic latte, milk is poured into the coffee.

Raf milk coffee drink
Milk coffee drinks
Raf coffee is a mixture of black coffee and cream whipped in a cappuccino maker, seasoned with vanilla sugar. To prepare any other creamy coffee drinks, spread the whipped cream on top of the coffee. The main difference is that coffee and cream are first combined and then whipped into a homogeneous smooth foam.

Recently, experiments with the ingredients of this drink have become very popular. Instead of vanilla sugar, you can use vanilla syrup or a teaspoon of honey. If you add honey, then you get the Honey Raf, which coffee regulars have become fond of lately. A whipped espresso with honey and cream should have a firm and viscous consistency, then you can be sure that you prepared it correctly.
