Espresso Coffee Guide

Espresso CoffeeOne of the more popular coffees is an espresso. These are commonly referred to as shots – so the term has become somewhat interchangeable. They’re known as shots because that’s the count of espresso you can have in your cup.

If you have one shot, that’s single, if you get a triple, that means you have three shots of espresso in the cup. Some coffee drinkers assume that espresso is one of the many different kinds of coffee beans and that it comes from a darker roast.

Espresso does not mean coffee bean. It simply means the way that the drink was made. It’s a beverage that’s a lot thicker than coffee and it’s topped with foam. The difference between it and regular coffee besides the thickness is that espresso is a quickly made drink.

The making of an espresso also differs from regular coffee because of the amount of pressure that’s used to make an espresso. It’s this pressure that gives you the strength of the drink.

Espresso is referred to as a shot and most people assume that it means that the beverage has a much higher level of caffeine in it than coffee made using traditional methods do.

But that’s a wrong assumption. Coffee made using traditional means contains more caffeine – even though an espresso is more concentrated. Unlike traditionally made coffee, an espresso comes with foam on the top of top of it.

The name espresso is actually an umbrella term over which dozens of different coffee drinks are found. Many people think that a cappuccino is a separate drink than an espresso, but it isn’t.

It’s a type of espresso. When you ask for a cappuccino, you get espresso along with steamed, foamed milk in your mug. The bottom portion of your cup should contain the milk and espresso up to the halfway mark.

From there to the top is where the foam will be. You can get these with a varying degree of milk and you can also get them in different specialty flavors. If you ask for a mocha, that’s an espresso that has chocolate added to it.

This beverage is one of the more popular espressos. These beverages can also be flavored with different types of coffee syrup. Espresso shots don’t give you a lot of coffee, which is why some people order the Americano version.

This gives you the espresso but the recipe doubles the serving of water that you get. It’s still just as tasty but has less strength than a straight shot. If you enjoy the strength of the espresso, then you can ask for a macchiato, which is easy on the foamed milk and heavy on the espresso.

You can have an espresso strong or lighter just by asking for a difference in the amount of water that’s put in the beverage. More water means it won’t be as potent.
