Besides tea, coffee is a type of brewed drink that has been popular since ancient times. Now, coffee has become a lifestyle as well as a drink that is very popular with young people. Every year, coffee consumption is getting more and more popular. This is proven by the many new coffee shops opening in various regions. However, there are many kinds of coffee-based drinks, and it can be very confusing for those who are unfamiliar with this. For those who like to enjoy a cup of coffee, you may be familiar with the types of coffee drinks available in coffee shops. Various coffee drinks have different tastes, so you need to recognize some of the popular types of coffee drinks. Here are some types of coffee drinks that we have summarized from various sources.
Espresso is a pure coffee drink without using a mixture of any ingredients such as milk or sugar. Generally, this coffee is favored by people who like strong coffee flavors. The texture of the coffee is thick and black with a white foam on top, formed from the pressure of the oil in the coffee beans. This coffee is typically served in a special espresso cup with a volume of 30 ml. This coffee is a type of coffee drink that is the lowest in calories. Espresso is also a coffee drink that is usually used as a base for making several other types of coffee drinks.
Americano is also often referred to by the name “Long Black.” This coffee drink is still similar to espresso; the difference is that this drink is made by diluting espresso with water. An Americano can be served hot or cold. Typically, an Americano consists of a single shot of espresso poured into a 178mm cup mixed with hot water until it fills the glass.
Cappuccino is one of the most popular types of coffee drinks in coffee shops. This coffee is a traditional Italian drink, famous for its top layer of milk foam and decorated with cocoa powder. Cappuccino is made from two main components: textured milk and espresso, with a 1:1 ratio. But there are also those who use a ratio of 1/3 espresso, 1/3 textured milk, and 1/3 foam milk.
Latte, also known as cafe latte, is a drink consisting of espresso, milk (steamed milk), and a little layer of milk foam. Milk foam is foam produced from milk that has been heated. At first glance, lattes and cappuccinos appear to be the same thing, but they are not. Latte uses more milk than cappuccino, so the coffee taste is lighter. Latte is often served in a cup with a beautiful motif on it, often called “latte art.”
Commonly called “Caffe Macchiato” or simply “Macchiato.” There are two types of macchiato, namely long and short. The short macchiato consists of a single shot of espresso with a little milk and milk foam to lighten the strong espresso taste. While the long macchiato uses double espresso.
A mochaccino is almost the same as a cappuccino; it’s a mixture of espresso and milk. However, there are other additional ingredients: chocolate, with details of 2/5 chocolate, 2/5 espresso, and 1/5 liquid milk. Simply put, a mochaccino is a cappuccino with added chocolate. Mochaccino includes drinks that contain more calories than other coffee drinks because there is a mixture of milk and chocolate.
Affogato is a type of coffee drink that has recently become popular in coffee shops in Indonesia. An affogato consists of espresso with vanilla ice cream. After ordering an Affogato, you will usually be given ice cream and a shot of espresso, and then the espresso is poured over the ice cream. You will taste the bitter taste of espresso and the sweetness of delicious ice cream.
