What Type of Coffee Should I Drink? A Comprehensive Guide

If you're a beginner who wants to start drinking coffee, we recommend that you first try a cappuccino, latte, American coffee or mocha. Flavoured coffee helps you get used to the taste by masking bitterness with cream, sugar and other flavours. Every morning I start the day with a good cup of Arabica. Arabica is the most popular type of coffee, without a doubt.

Depending on who you ask, many coffee enthusiasts prefer to use Arabica beans because of their flavour. Arabica beans, which are commonly used for black coffee, have a sweeter and more complex flavour that can be drunk directly. The funny thing is that, although it is the most popular, it doesn't have as much caffeine as Robusta. As the most popular coffee drink in existence, latte is made up of a shot of espresso and steamed milk with just a touch of foam.

It can be ordered alone or with a flavour injection of anything from vanilla to pumpkin spice. Here's how to make an imitated pumpkin spice Starbucks latte. Sometimes you can find variations that use cream instead of milk or that also add a touch of flavour. A shot of espresso can be served alone or used as a base for most coffee beverages, such as lattes and macchiatos.

The Doppio, a double shot of espresso, is perfect for adding an extra touch of energy to your steps. Like yin and yang, sliced coffee is the perfect balance between espresso and steamed hot milk. Milk is used to reduce the acidity of espresso. Named after those annoying midnight flights, a red eye can cure any dull morning.

A full cup of hot coffee with a shot of espresso mixed in will definitely get your heart racing. Originally from Portugal, this hot coffee drink is closely related to coffee with milk and cappuccino. The only difference is that it contains approximately twice as much frothed milk, making it a lighter drink compared to the other two. A Lungo is a long lasting espresso.

The longer the extraction, the more caffeine there will be and the more ounces you can enjoy. Macchiato is another espresso-based drink that has a small amount of foam on top. It's the midpoint between a cappuccino and a Doppio. For all chocolate lovers, they'll fall in love with a girl (or maybe they already have one).

Mocha is a chocolate espresso drink with steamed milk and foam. It uses less hot water, which creates a sweeter flavour compared to the bitter taste of a traditional shot of espresso or a Doppio. This drink of Australian origin is basically a cappuccino without foam or chocolate sprinkled. It is an express drink with steamed milk.

Affogato is an excuse to enjoy a scoop of ice cream at any time of the day (and at any time of the year, in my opinion). Served with a scoop of ice cream and a shot of espresso, or two. Affogato is very delicious if served over a brownie. Irish coffee consists of black coffee, whiskey and sugar, topped with whipped cream.

Here's an Irish coffee recipe that will warm you up right away. Like iced coffee, iced espresso can be served on its own or with a splash of milk, cream or sweetener. You can also make ice with special espresso-based beverages such as americanos, mocas, macchiatos, lattes and flat whites. We have another manual coffee maker for you - The AeroPress is very similar to the French press.

To use an AeroPress, we recommend that you check out this beautiful getting started guide. You can make espresso, lattes, cold beers or just a classic cup of coffee in this nifty little machine. Moka pots share many similarities with the percolator, and there is often confusion between the two. Both need a warm surface, such as a stove or even a campfire.

However, the Moka pot produces a drink similar to an espresso, and its manufacturing process is slightly different from that of the coffee maker - you should keep an eye on it because when the water in the Moka pot runs out you must remove the pot from the hot surface to prevent the coffee from tasting burnt - whereas with the simple process of preparing the percolator, the longer you leave it on the stronger the coffee will be. The purpose of red eyes is to add an extra boost of caffeine to your standard cup of coffee - The black eye is just the double version of the red eye and is high in caffeine. Americans are popular breakfast beverages believed to have originated during World War II - soldiers added water to their coffee to further extend their rations - water dilutes espresso while maintaining high levels of caffeine - Long black is a coffee drink similar to American but originated in New Zealand and Australia - usually has more cream than American - The word macchiato means mark or stain - this refers to mark that steamed milk leaves on surface when introduced into beverage - flavour syrups often added depending on customer's preferences - often confused with standard macchiato long macchiato taller version usually identified by different layers steamed coffee milk - cut takes macchiato step further by evenly balancing espresso warm milk reduce acidity - brief adds decadent touch regular espresso adding half half steamed create rich creamy texture - mocha considered hybrid chocolate hot chocolate - chocolate powder syrup gives rich creamy flavour reduces acidity espresso - affogatos more dessert than find in shop but add fun touch menu made pouring shot over scoop vanilla ice cream.
