A Taste Of Every Coffee

There are lots of kinds of coffee out there waiting to be tasted. I mean, every coffee out there have a great taste and culture. We are used to drink coffee but we haven't noticed that there are so many kinds of them. As of what I have known, there are many kinds of coffee but the most popular are in the list below with some of its pictures.

  • Café Mocha is a variant of café latte. Like a latte it is typically one third espresso and two thirds steamed milk, but a portion of chocolate is added, usually in the form of chocolate syrup although some use instant chocolate powder. Mochas can contain dark or milk chocolate. A term moccaccino is used in some regions of Europe and the Middle East to describe Café Latte with cocoa or chocolate. In the U.S. it usually refers to a cappuccino made with chocolate.
  • Cappuccino is a coffee-based drink prepared with espresso, hot milk, and steamed milk foam. A cappuccino differs from a café latte in that it is prepared with much less steamed or textured milk than the café latte with the total of espresso and milk/foam making up between approximately 150 mL and 180 mL (5 and 6 fluid ounces). A cappuccino is traditionally served in a porcelain cup, which has far better heat retention characteristics than glass or paper. The foam on top of the cappuccino acts as an insulator and helps retain the heat of the liquid, allowing it to stay hotter longer.
  • Frappuccino is the name and registered trademark of a Starbucks blended ice beverage and a bottled coffee beverage.
  • Mochasippi is a drink prepared by baristas in Community Coffee houses located in the Southern United States, commonly known as CC’s. it is similar the Mocha Frappuccino of Starbucks coffee houses. Unlike a Frappuccino, a Mochasippi contains actual shots espresso rather than a powdered instant coffee.
  • Cortado is an espresso with a small amount of warm milk to produce the acidity. The ratio of milk to coffee is between 1:1 – 1:2, and the milk is added after the espresso. The steamed milk hasn’t much foam, but many baristas make some micro foam to make latte art. It’s usually served in a special glass, often with a metal ring base and metal wire handle. There are several variations including cortado condensada (espresso with condensed milk) and leche y leche (with condensed milk and cream on top).
  • Macchíato is an Italian word, meaning “marked” or “stained”. It is frequently used to refer to two separate coffee drinks.

Caffe Macchíato (also known as Espresso Macchíato or Short Macchíato)

Latte Macchíato (also known as Long Macchíato)

  • Affogato is a coffee-based beverage or dessert.Affogato style”, which refers to the act of topping a drink or dessert with espresso, may also incorporate caramel sauce or chocolate sauce.
  • Liqueur Coffee is a coffee brew with a 25 mL shot of liqueur. This brew is usually served in a clear, clean, pre-heated, liqueur coffee glass with the coffee and cream separated for good visual and taste effect. The liqueur of choice is added first with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar mixed in. The glass in then filled to within an inch of the top with good, strong, fresh filter coffee. Fresh, chilled, additive free, slightly whipped cream is then poured carefully over the back of a cold teaspoon, so that it floats on top of the coffee and liqueur mixture. The sugar is required in the coffee mixture to help the cream float.
  • Café Americano is a style of coffee prepared by adding espresso to hot water, giving a similar strength but different flavor from regular drip coffee. The strength of Americano varies the number of shots of espresso added.
  • Flat White is prepared by pouring the creamy steamed milk from the bottom of the jug over a single shot (30 mL) of espresso. The drink is sometimes in a small 150-160 mL ceramic cup. The stretched and texturised milk is prepared by entraining air into the milk and folding the top layer into the lower layers. To achieve the “flat”, non-frothy texture the steamed milk with smaller bubbles, making the drink smooth and velvety in texture.
  • Greek Frappé coffee is a foam-covered iced coffee drink made from spray-dried instant coffee. It is very popular in Greece especially during summer, but has now spread on to other countries. In French, when describing a drink, the word frappe means shaken and/or chilled; however, in popular Greek culture, the word frappe is predominantly taken refer to the shaking associated with the preparation of a café frappe.

  • Yuanyang, sometimes called Ying Yong, is a popular beverage in Hong Kong, made up of a mixture of coffee and Hong Kong-style milk tea. It was originally served at dai pai dongs (open air food vendors) and cha chaan tengs (café), but is now available in various types of restaurants. It can be served hot or cold. The name yuanyang, which refers to mandarin ducks, is a symbol of conjugal love on Chinese culture, as the birds usually appear in pairs and the male and female look very different. This same connotation of “pair” of two unlike items used to name this drink.
