We love our coffee but do you know how each type of coffee is made?
Here is a list of coffee types to help you choose your favourite cup of coffee. Try making one with our freshly roasted coffee blends.
Espresso (Short Black)
1 shot of espresso in an espresso cup.
Double Espresso (Doppio)
2 shots of espresso in an espresso cup.
1 shot of espresso in a short glass or espresso cup with a dollop of steamed milk and foam placed on top of the espresso.
2 shots of espresso in a tumbler glass or cup with a dollop of steamed milk and foam placed on top of the espresso.
A ristretto is an espresso shot that is extracted with the same amount of coffee but half the amount of water. The end result is a more concentrated and darker espresso extraction.
Long Black (Americano)
A long black (“americano”) is hot water with an espresso shot extracted on top of the hot water.
A café latte, or “latte” for short, is an espresso based drink with steamed milk and micro-foam added to the coffee. This coffee is much sweeter compared to an espresso due to the steamed milk.
A cappuccino is similar to a latte. However the key difference between a latte and cappuccino is that a cappuccino has more foam and chocolate placed on top of the drink.
A flat white is a coffee you’ll primarily find in Australia and New Zealand. It is made the same as a cappuccino expect it does not have any foam or chocolate on top.
A piccolo latte is a café latte made in an espresso cup. This means it has a very strong but mellowed down espresso taste thanks to the steamed milk and micro foam within it.
A mocha is a mix between a cappuccino and a hot chocolate. It is made by putting mixing chocolate powder with an espresso shot and then adding steamed milk and micro-foam into the beverage.
An affogato is a simple dessert coffee that is treat during summer and after dinner. It is made by placing one big scoope of vanilla ice cream within a single or double shot of espresso.
