POPULAR COFFEE BEVERAGES
Espresso is a strong, robust, Italian-style black coffee. Prepared by forcing steam through roasted dark coffee beans, espresso is traditionally served in a preheated demitasse cup. When made correctly, espresso has a top layer of golden foam, called crema. Its rich flavor is the perfect pick-me-up and makes it an ideal after-dinner beverage. Cappuccino is a coffee beverage made with one-third fresh espresso and two-thirds frothy foamed milk. It has a frothy cream top, and is typically served topped with a sprinkle of cocoa powder and/or ground cinnamon. Cappuccino is often served iced as a hot-weather refresher. Caffé Latte is a milky coffee beverage that is lighter in texture and flavor than straight coffee or espresso. It is made with a single shot of espresso and steamed (not frothed) milk. Steaming the milk gives the drink a smooth texture. Latte is great anytime and is also often served iced.
