6) Long Black
Kicking off this list is the drink of the coffee purist. You like nothing better than to experience the rich taste of the coffee as it was originally intended.
A long black, like an espresso, is ideal for those who prefer their coffee black. A single 30ml shot of coffee is poured over 120-160mls of hot (not boiling) water to make a long black. You may retain the crema intact by pouring the coffee over the water, which results in a deeper flavour and a little colder temperature.
Next up is the famed Macchiato; if you’re having this, then you are likely trying to sneak an espresso into the afternoon for that midday pick-me-up. It’s a happy middle between an espresso and a cappucino.
The macchiato is ideal for those who don’t want a black coffee but don’t want to go too light on the milk. It’s a single 30ml espresso shot with a dollop of warm milk foam on top.
4) Flat White
You enjoy the nuanced flavours of specialty coffee but want something dairy-based, you may prefer a flat white to a latte. Because it has less milk, a flat white will allow you to more fully experience the sensorial profile of the beans.
It’s a coffee that is made with a single shot of espresso and steamed milk and served in a 250ml porcelain cup. A flat white is distinguished by the absence of milk froth, which keeps the milk “flat.”
A little bit more milk goes a long way and it can be a perfect complement to your mornings, keeping you fuller for longer.
A single shot of espresso is combined with equal parts warm steamed milk and milk foam in this popular recipe. It’s usually served in a porcelain cup with a chocolate powder sprinkling on top.
While a latte and a flat white are extremely similar, there are a few major differences. A latte, which is typically served in a glass, has a larger milk-to-coffee ratio than a flat white with a small bit of milk foam on top. Lattes are popular in the UK, but not in the rest of the world; in Italy, you’ll get a cup of milk if you request a latte.
The king of the morning! The perfect way to kickstart your day when you’re feeling like you need that extra burst of energy to get you through the long day ahead.
The word espresso is often used as a catch-all phrase for coffee these days, it’s crucial to know what you’re getting if you order this dark brew. A single 30ml shot of espresso (also known as a short black) is served piping hot (60 degrees) and without milk.
