For those who adore coffee, having different types of coffee means having a variety of delectable choices. Some people are addicted to coffee and they tend to visit the coffee shop almost every day. You can find various types of coffee not only in coffee shops but at regular grocery stores and hypermarkets. At the same time, if you are really addicted to coffee it would be best if you can prepare your own coffee at home. Indeed, there are various ways to prepare coffee and there are various kinds of coffee beans for you to choose from.
One of the popular types of coffee is called the Espresso. Espresso is made by introducing boiling hot water into a mug of coffee beans, packed tight and ground to fine. The hot water is pushed into the ground coffee beans with a specific level of pressure. You can learn the right way of making a cup of Espresso by watching a barista making it. In general, Espresso is consumed in little cups that measure around two ounces only. This is because Espresso comes with a very dense taste and it contains higher amount of caffeine when compared to other types of coffee.
Another one of the popular types of coffee is known as Cappuccino. Cappuccino is made from the combination of Espresso, heated milk and milk froth. The Espresso is at first combined with the heated milk before it is topped with the milk froth. When you are sitting at a coffee shop and you see someone expelling some whip cream, it might mean that he is preparing Cappuccino. When compared to other types of coffee, Cappuccino is normally enjoyed in bigger cups. In general the size of a Cappuccino cup is around 6 – 12 ounces. Some coffee shops may even create beautiful designs using the milk foam that floats above the Cappuccino.
Latte is another one of the popular types of coffee. Latte looks and tastes similar to Cappuccino. Latte is actually consisted of Espresso and heated milk. Some coffee shops may even serve many types of coffee including your Latte with milk froth on top of it. However, the milk foam is usually thin and it is simply used to decorate the Latte. There is very little difference between Latte and Cappuccino, with the Latte being smoother in texture.
The Turkish coffee is another one of the popular types of coffee. Turkish coffee is not a kind of coffee bean but it is more about the way of preparing it. In order to make Turkish coffee, very fine ground coffee is boiled using a pot. Unlike other kinds of coffee, the coffee beans used for Turkish coffee are not filtered. Since the coffee beans are not filtered, you will get strong-flavored coffee at the end of the brewing process. As a matter of fact, Turkish coffee tastes much stronger when compared to Espresso. You may still find fine bits of ground coffee beans at the base of your cup although the beans are ground to fine. Therefore, in order to lace the bitter taste of Turkish coffee, sugar is often added to it. Just like other types of coffee, most people like their Turkish coffee to be a bit sweet instead of totally bitter.
