The Variety That Can Come from Espresso and Milk

With seven grams of coffee beans, brewed at 130 psi at about 200 degrees Fahrenheit, you brew the magical drink of espresso. You can create many different coffee drinks with the bold flavor of espresso. Koffee Kult would like to share with you some of these many different coffee drinks for you to make right at home. Luckily, the only two ingredients you will need are espresso and milk! 

Espresso – An espresso shot should be one ounce of liquid. There are two different types of espresso pours: ristretto and luongo. The ristretto is a restrained shot, so it should fill less than 2/3 of an entire espresso cup. Luongo is a long pull, so the brewed espresso should fill more than 2/3 of the tiny espresso cup. 

Double Espresso – Two shots of espresso, more concentrated than one shot. This is served straight up, with no milk. 

Espresso Macchiato – This is espresso and milk, but the milk is foamed. You pour just a touch of foam on top of this single espresso shot. 

Cappuccino – This shot of espresso is topped with a deep layer of foamed milk. These kinds of different coffee drinks are made with 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, and 1/3 foam. 

Latte – This mixture of espresso and milk has the same finish as a cappuccino, but with much less foam on top. 

Flat White – This drink is enjoyed with the thinnest layer of foam possible. It is meant so the mixture of espresso and milk is the perfect combination. The milk should not overpower the flavor of the bold espresso.
