Turkish coffee is a unique brewing
method using finely-ground coffee beans in the size and consistency of cocoa
powder. These grounds are boiled with sugar and sometimes cardamom in a special
pot. Once boiled, the powder remains suspended in the cup for serving.
Espresso, the common base for many
coffee drinks, is made by pushing nearly boiling water through finely ground
coffee beans at high pressure. This process results in much quicker extraction
and a thicker consistency than a normal brew. Variations include the long espresso or 'lungo',
which doubles the amount of water and the duration of the extraction.
A macchiato is an Italian bold
espresso drink made with a splash of steamed or frothed milk. The name
macchiato means “stained” or “marked” in Italian, describing the look of the
drink when splashed with milk.
A classic latte—simply espresso and
steamed milk with a dash of froth on top—is the base for many flavored coffee
drinks. Its name is an English derivative of the term caffelatte which means
“milk coffee.” The latte is easily one of the most popular coffee drinks.
A flat white is an espresso-based
drink with a milk and foam distribution that gives the feel of drinking thick
espresso, but milky and more drinkable.
6. Cold Brew:
As simple as it sounds, cold brew
coffee is made by steeping ground coffee beans in cold or room-temperature
water to achieve temperate flavors and create a chemical profile different from
that of traditionally brewed coffee.
A cappuccino is an espresso-based
drink topped with steamed milk foam. This drink offers many variations such as
cream instead of foamed milk, and common flavoring options including cinnamon,
chocolate, vanilla and hazelnut.
8. Café Mocha:
Also called a mochaccino, the café
mocha is latte or traditional coffee with milk, made with chocolate flavoring.
The name comes from its city of origin, Mocha, Yemen. As a twist from the
traditional mocha, a white mocha is made using white chocolate flavoring.
An americano is
espresso and hot water made to be about the same strength and amount as a
normal cup of drip coffee, but the process gives it a stronger, more intense
flavor. It is made by diluting an espresso with boiling water. It is an Italian
drink referred to as the “American Coffee,” hence its name.
10.Café au lait:
Café au lait is a French coffee
drink consisting of equal parts hot coffee and scalded milk. The traditional
French café au lait is prepared and served in a bowl with a wider mouth to
facilitate preparation and cool the drink down faster.
