Whether it is coffee or tea, we all love our morning jolt of caffeine. For coffee lovers, this cup is their cup of magic: it conjures energy and powers them through their daily routine. Here are five great types of coffee to start your day with:
This is an elementary ingredient in all types of coffee. So how does one make an espresso? Under high pressure, pass boiling water through finely-ground coffee beans. It is a difficult process to master, but it’s going to be worth it. You can only have a good coffee experience if you brew the beans to perfection. And what’s more, it will have you wide awake in no time and the feeling lasts throughout the day.
The name bears its resemblance to the brown cowls of the Capuchin monks of the Catholic Church. It is perhaps the most popular type of coffee. It has three layers – a shot of espresso, a shot of steamed milk, and then a layer of frothed, foamy milk. You can top it with chocolate powder or syrup or shavings. It makes the Italians’ breakfast complete – perhaps it will also make you want to try the Italian way!
The name draws inspiration from American soldiers who, during the Second World War, made this type of coffee to make their beverages last longer. It was later adopted by American baristas. All you have to do to make this coffee is add hot water to a shot of espresso coffee and you’re good to go.
Café au lait or Café latte
Simple and quite popular, this drink is basically what the name says: coffee with milk. There are several variations of it throughout Europe and in the USA, but homemade café au lait is easy to make. It is made by adding a shot of dark coffee – usually espresso – to heated milk.
This variety is a strong brew served with the grounds in the cup, using a very fine blend of coffee. It is generally boiled in a small copper pot known as an ibrek. The result is a very strong cup of coffee, which can serve you well if you need to wake up in a hurry.
