Best Specialty Coffee Drinks at Home
You do not need to have branded or high-tech coffee maker. No matter what coffee maker you use, the most important thing is using fresh coffee beans. According to A couple cooks, here is the best specialty coffee drinks that you can make easily at home:
This is the most basic coffee drink, usually served in demitasse or special espresso cups in 30 milliliters (one shot) to 118 milliliters. Espresso has a thick and bitter texture, with a white foam or crema on top that is formed from the oil pressure in the coffee beans.
An Americano consists of a single shot of espresso poured into a 178-milliliters cup mixed with hot water to fill the glass. Another type is doppio, a sip of Americano with two espresso shots. This drink is often served hot or cold and is called an iced Americano.
If you don’t enjoy coffee that tends to be bitter, you can order a macchiato as an alternative. The ratio of steamed milk in this drink is more than the espresso, so there is a touch of milky and savory.
4. Cold Brew
Cold brew is made using the “soaking” method for at least 8 hours. It is never exposed to heat (temperature), so it does not participate in extracting the acidity character of the coffee. In addition, the results of cold brew also tend to feel lighter and unique.
Latte usually uses a 2:1 ratio of espresso and milk. In addition to its delicious taste, a latte is generally served in a cup with a beautiful motif or what is called latte art.
