As we all now coffee comes in various different names, styles and strengths. Coffee is a popular drink of choice in our hot drinks machines, today we'll take a closer look at what it takes to make our most popular coffee selections!
Black coffee is where we must start as it's as coffee at it's near purest form, with the only ingredients being ground coffee beans and hot water. Having high quality coffee beans is a must as there isn't any other ingredients to mask the coffees taste. Our coffee bean of choice is Tchibo Professional Express Coffee Beans and are available to buy on our website!
A latte type of coffee made with mixture foam, steamed milk, and expresso. However there is more foam than steamed milk so expect a cappuccino to be slightly more stronger tasting that a typical latte.
This drink is a creamier alternative to a cappuccino as there is a higher steamed milk ratio, expect a more subtle milkier taste compared to our other options.
An Americano coffee and black coffee are often mistaken to being the same because of the look and strength. An Americano is a mixture of 1 or 2 expresso shots and hot water instead of ground coffee beans which would be a black coffee.
A sweeter coffee alternative, our caffe mocha is simply a mixture of chocolate, ground coffee and milk.
A Latte macchiato is a shot of espresso a lot of steamed milk, and foamed milk on top. The word “macchiato” means “stained” in Italian, the meaning behind this is that the glass is stained by the milk foam at the top.
So there you have it, our diverse coffee selection explained in full! Now you have a better understanding of the making of your favourite or maybe you've discovered a new type of coffee that you'd like to try?
