If we say the types of coffee are outnumbered, it won’t be a wrong statement. The differences in the types of beans, roast levels, and the brewing process can give you so many choices. However, we have listed down some most-loved types of coffee for you.
1. Black Coffee
Black coffee is the simplest form of ground coffee beans that are steeped in hot water. It is served warm and can also be termed as café noir. There is no milk or sugar added to the black coffee, so the quality of coffee beans matters the most to give out all the flavor.
Espresso has a distinguished taste that comes from its syrupy texture and foamy layer on top. The taste of espresso is denser than other brewed coffees and has the most caffeine than different coffee blends.
Italy is the origin of espresso, and you can make it with a variety of coffee beans and roasts. The pressurized brewing through coffee grounds makes it more concentrated than other coffee. Surprisingly, espresso is the base for most coffee drinks from café latte, mocha, cappuccino, Americano, flat white, and more.
In Italian, Doppio means ‘double,’ which has two espresso shots in a single-serving. Doppio has an intense taste and a more robust aroma that is a perfect choice to satisfy your coffee cravings.
People worldwide love a great cappuccino, and it is made by pouring an espresso shot in a cup and with a layer of steamed milk and foam in equal ratio. Some people also love to sprinkle some ground chocolate on the top of the foam.
Cappuccinos have a delicious and creamy taste, while the milk foam gives it a softer flavor. In the winter season, cappuccinos are often topped with cinnamon or nutmeg powder to provide a festive taste.
Vegans choose to replace milk with the plant-based alternative; oat milk. It yields a creamy and delicate texture to the cappuccino.
The latte is quite similar to a cappuccino; however, the ratio of espresso, steamed milk, and foam milk varies. Usually, it is recommended to serve a latte in a tumbler glass, but it is commonly served in a regular coffee mug.
To make a latte, one shot of espresso is used with steamed milk on it. However, the milk foam is just used to create ‘latte art,’ and it is minimal. Coffee shops around the world train their baristas to develop incredible latte art to please their customers.
Among the most popular coffee drinks available, you can order a latte, either plain or with a flavor shot like pumpkin spice or vanilla.
Americano is the go-to coffee for people who love a caffeine kick to their lazy afternoon. It has notoriously high caffeine content with a flavor profile similar to black coffee. Americano can offer you a classic coffee cup that can intensify your daily routine.
Students often choose to have Americano during their studies because it gives them energy and is exciting. For an Americano, the cup is filled with two-thirds of water, and then one shot of espresso is added over the water.
People who have a sweet tooth are fond of a mocha. Mocha is a blend of cappuccino and hot chocolate. In the simple form, mocha is served with a shot of espresso, which is topped with hot chocolate. However, a sophisticated way of serving a mocha is with a shot of espresso, a small part of hot chocolate (or chocolate syrup) with the topping of steamed milk and milk foam.
The idea behind the extraordinary and extravagant mocha is a silky and smooth hot chocolate combined with the sweetness of milk and bitterness from the espresso. The combination of these flavor profiles gives you a perfectly indulging drink.
People who are not fond of brown or dark chocolate also choose to replace it with white chocolate with sprinkles of chocolate on top.
8. Flat White
Flat white is a popular drink in New Zealand and Australia. It is pretty similar to a cappuccino but lacks the foam layer and chocolate powder on top. An espresso shot is added with steamed milk without any foam or toppings to create a perfect flat white.
The steamed milk gives you a creamy mouthfeel and makes the coffee delicious.
Macchiato is an espresso with a tiny dollop of milk foam on top. People usually love to have macchiato with their lunch. Macchiato has a single espresso with a bit of milk foam, while you can also get a double macchiato, a Doppio with a dollop of milk foam.
The baristas worldwide have different ways of making a macchiato, as some also add a dollop of steamed milk with the topping of milk foam.
10. Irish Coffee
Irish coffee might not be something you can order during work hours, as it is made with espresso, whiskey, and cream. It has a bright and delightful flavor which is more of a cocktail than a coffee beverage.
There are different ways to make Irish coffee. However, traditionally, espresso, whiskey, cream, and some brown sugar are added to make it. Relax and sit back to take sips of the delicious combo of espresso and whiskey through the thick layer of indulgent, whipped cream.
Aside from the type of coffee drink you prefer, we can offer you the quality of coffee flavors and blends. There are more than 30–35 different types of coffee with variations in their origin, brewing methods, and the kind of coffee beans used.
