The Coffee Experience
There are so many different ways to make coffee. Whether you go for complex concoctions or instant inventions, each method results in a different brew.
For many people, brewing coffee is an art form, particularly for the professionals – the baristas. They pride themselves on their coffee skills and can whip up foamy works of art. Want to bring out your inner barista? Here are just a few different ways to brew a delicious cup:
An espresso is a shot of concentrated coffee made by forcing steam through very finely ground coffee beans.
A ristretto is a more intense espresso. It’s made in the same way, with the same amount of coffee, but less water.
A latte, or caffè latte, is similar to a cappuccino, but with more milk and only about a finger width of foam on top.
A macchiato is a thick and creamy coffee, made with one shot of espresso and a small amount of frothy milk foam on top.
A mocha is a sweeter, chocolatey coffee, made with espresso, hot milk and cocoa powder or chocolate syrup.
