Four Different Ways to Prepare Coffee
Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world. Some drink it because they genuinely love the taste, others see it as a necessity due to the caffeine boost, and many may drink it for its alleged health benefits.
One of the upsides of coffee is that it can be prepared and enjoyed in different ways, such as:
- Cold brew – Typically made by steeping coffee in cold or room temperature water for 12 to 24 hours, cold brew coffees are served chilled and tend to be smoother than regular drip coffee.
- Lattes – A regular latte is typically made with one espresso shot, 6 to 8 ounces of steamed milk, and then topped with foam. Flavored lattes are very common in coffee shops – with hazelnut and vanilla being two popular flavors.
- Cappuccinos – Another espresso-based drink, cappuccinos tend to have more caffeine than lattes and a stronger coffee taste, as they consist of 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, and 1/3 wet foamed milk.
- Americanos – An Americano, or Café Americano, is popular with those who prefer a less intense version of an espresso. For this drink, a shot of espresso is diluted with water, resulting in a larger cup of coffee that resembles traditional American coffee.
