The different types of coffees in cafes
So which one do you go for?
Single origin- about $4 this is a great way to try coffee
Cold drip- best drunk in summer. It is like espresso except ice cold and has been stored for eight hours in a really cold place
Syphon- another way to brew coffee.
Cappucino- this is just standard coffee nothing exciting.
Espresso- short black/long black/doppio
Mochaccino (or mocha)- this has one teaspoon of coffee and one of hot chocolate. It is for those that love coffee but can’t have too much of it for various reasons
Piccolo- this is a baby latte. It’s a lot smaller and its great for those that just want to try a coffee.
Latte- it is milky and frothy and served in a glass.
Affogato- Espresso coffee served with ice cream. This is in fact an Italian dessert, but some cafes have this
Amaretto- its the american type of coffee
Doppio- this is usually a double shot of coffee and is a lot stronger and bitter.
Pour overs- these are more expensive than your average type as there is a lot of labour in this. So you might not see this around as much. Only the good coffee places has this.
