So many coffee
beverages to choose from... Discover espresso coffee
drinks and their variations.
[ADSENSE_0000000094] Many coffee
beverages exist to make your morning, midday or evening
experience a delightful one. There are classical espressos,
espresso coffee drinks involving milk or chocolate, and also
alcoholic coffee beverages, which are definitely worth a few
lines in this article.
The first thing to clarify is
the correct spelling of the word espresso. Many people
mistakenly write the word "expresso". The original word
espresso comes from the Italian verb "esprimere" which can be
translated by "to press out". As you may or may not know,
espresso is simply another coffee brewing method. An espresso
is obtained by forcing hot water through densely packed coffee.
Before moving on to espresso coffee drinks, here are a few
Espresso allongé: what you get
when you brew the same coffee a second time, resulting in a
weaker espresso from the added hot water.
Double shot espresso: instead of
brewing about two tablespoons of coffee, brew twice as much.
The espresso will take a little longer to brew, but you will
have more body and it will be stronger.
Espresso can show off many
personnalities. For instance, topping an espresso with hot
frothy milk and either cocoa powder or ground cinnamon will
make you a nice cappucino. Obtain other espresso coffee drinks
by adding one shot of hot water to two shots of espresso:
you've just prepared a doppio. Or for a much weaker espresso
drink, dilute a single shot espresso into a cup of hot water:
thats an americano. For fancier coffee beverages, choose
between a macchiato or a latte: the first one is an espresso
topped with a small cloud of foamed milk. The second is a shot
of espresso that you pour into a cup of steamed milk, with a
ratio of 1/3 espresso for 2/3 steamed milk.
Last but not least, end a nice
dinner with cozy alcoholic coffee beverages. Here are the two
most common of the endless possibilities your fantasy can
create. Prepare a cup by frosting the rim using lemon juice and
granulated sugar. Pour coffee into the cup and add 1oz. Grand
Marnier, 1oz. brandy and 1oz. Tia Maria. Top with whipped
cream, and you have a Brazilian coffee. Irish coffee requires
less ingredients: a cup of hot coffee, 1 oz. of Irish whisky,
and one tablespoon of sugar. Mix together and top with whipped
cream. Enjoy these espresso coffee drinks all year
