The Many Choices From Your Coffee Shop

Jun 5, 2008
Offering a large menu to select from is something many coffee shops due. Yet few of them take the time to explain what is in each of the drinks they offer. That can make it difficult to choose something that you aren't 100% sure of such as a basic cup of hot and delicious coffee.

Once you understand the basic items, you can decide which ones you want to try. You won't be hesitant to order certain items either. This is because you will have a basic understanding of what they come with. If you don't like a particular drink or you don't understand what it is you should let the staff know.

Cappuccino is likely one that you have heard about. They are very common with individuals who don't really care for the taste of basic coffee. It contains espresso, steamed milk, and froth. You will see it offered as a double or a single. This generally refers to the size. Find out what the single size is and twice that much is the double.

A latte is a drink you will find in many different types of coffee shops. This is similar but it has more steamed milk than a cappuccino. In fact, 2/3 of they drink is steamed milk. There is also espresso in it with the amount depending on if you want one shot or two. The overall taste will depend on the flavoring you decide to include as well as how much espresso is added.

Many people love the light and great taste at the top of a hot drink. This foamy delight is known as froth. There is a special machine that creates it and then it is added to the finished product. This is a great tasting treat that you should find to be to your satisfaction. Some drinks such as latte including it but you can also ask for it to top off your other drinks as well.

A mocha is quite similar to a latte with a distinct difference - it has chocolate added to it. Some locations add a syrup while others add a powder. This is a great drink for you if you crave something on the sweeter side. Many individuals who don't like the bitter taste of coffee really enjoy a mocha.

An espresso is another term that you will see quite a bit in coffee shops. This is a very strong type of coffee. It is dark and thick and many people order it in order to give them the caffeine they need to get their day going. You will find many drinks in coffee shops have espresso. It won't be uncommon to see signs that you can add another shot of it too for an additional price.

Now that you know the basics of what you can order from a coffee shop, you can try some new things. You can keep track of what you really like so you can order your favorites again and again. Have some fun at the coffee shop instead of going with what you know is safe day after day.
