Types Of Coffee Beverages7 October 2008 in General
There are many different types of coffee beverages available that are enjoyed by many individuals worldwide. Here some of the more popular coffee beverages around the world:
Cappuccino is a made with espresso, warm milk, and steamed milk foam. A cappuccino is usually served in a porcelain cup, because it retains heat better than glass or paper. The foam on top of the cappuccino also helps to retain the heat of the beverage.
Liqueur coffee is a coffee brew that has 25 ml of liqueur. This beverage is generally served in a liqueur coffee glass. The coffee and cream are put separately. Firstly, the liqueur preferred is added along with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar then the coffee is added. Chilled whipped cream is poured in and floats on top of the mixture. To help the cream float, sugar is added to the coffee.
Greek frappe is an iced coffee that is covered with foam and is made from spray-dried instant coffee. It is well-known in Greece particularly in summer, but has extended to other regions. When describing a beverage, ‘frappe’ means chilled and/or shaken.
Cortado is espresso made with a small quantity of warm milk which decreases acidity. The ratio of milk to coffee is 1:1 to1:2 and milk is put in after the espresso. Cortado is well-known in Spain, Portugal, and Latin America. In Cuba, it is called ‘cortadito’ and in Catalan it is called ‘tallat’. A specific glass with a metal ring base and a wire handle is usually used when serving. Variations of cortado include espresso with condensed milk, also condensed milk with cream on top.
Indian Filter Coffee
Indian filter coffee is sweet and creamy and is produced from coarse ground, darkly roasted Arabica coffee or Peaberry beans. It is drip-brewed for a few hours in a conventional metal coffee filter prior to serving.
Flat white is made by pouring creamy steamed milk over 30ml of espresso. The beverage is served in a small ceramic tulip cup. To produce the flat texture the milk is poured from the bottom of the container, keeping the lighter froth to the top so as to get smaller bubbles which makes the beverage more velvety and smooth.
Cafe mocha is a variation of cafe latte. Like a latte it is normally one third espresso and two thirds steamed milk Chocolate is also added to the mixture (chocolate syrup or chocolate powder is used). Mochas can consist of dark or milk chocolate.
Cafe Americano is a coffee made by adding espresso to hot water which is as strong as regular drip coffee but has a different flavour. How strong a cup of Cafe Americano may be is dependent on the amount of espresso that is added.
This cappuccino is prepared with half and half milk which is harder to foam, and not whole milk. This is said to make the beverage more enriched and creamy.
Latte in Italian means milk. Caffe latte is prepared using one serving of espresso in steamed milk with no froth. The ratio of milk to coffee is approximately 3:1.
Galao is a hot coffee beverage from Portugal prepared with foamed milk and espresso.
Iced coffee is a cold variation of the standard hot coffee beverage with ice added.
So, no matter what your taste preferences may be, there is a delicious coffee beverage that will appeal to your liking, whether your coffee is home-made or bought in cafes or coffee shops.
