Coffee Shop Questions
(You think about, but are too afraid to ask.)
We’ve all been there, standing in line at a coffee shop scanning the menu frantically trying to figure out what kind of coffee drink to order while trying not to ask too many questions to the barista. After all, you want to appear to be a coffee connoisseur. Below is a compilation of several frequently thought but never asked questions.
What’s the difference between light and dark roast?
Let’s start by talking about what determines the roast. The length of time that coffee beans are roasting and the temperature at which they are roasting determines the roast. For a dark roast, the beans will roast for a longer period of time at a higher temperature. A light roast coffee is a smart choice if you enjoy a sweeter undertone to your coffee. A dark roast is for you if you enjoy more bittersweet coffee undertones.
Aren’t caffe lattes and cappuccinos the same drink?
Not quite. The caffe latte had contains more steamed milk than the cappuccino. It also possess a generally creamier flavor throughout. The cappuccino has less steamed milk than a latte and a more dry flavor than the caffe latte. If you are a coffee foam lover, the cappuccino, because of it’s preparation method will have significantly more foam on top.
Is it “espresso” or “expresso”?
It is pronounced “espresso”. The word espresso means “fast” in Italian. “Expresso” is not a real word. You’re welcome.
