So many coffee beverages to choose from... Discover espresso coffee drinks and their variations.

[ADSENSE_0000000094] Many coffee beverages exist to make your morning, midday or evening experience a delightful one. There are classical espressos, espresso coffee drinks involving milk or chocolate, and also alcoholic coffee beverages, which are definitely worth a few lines in this article.

The first thing to clarify is the correct spelling of the word espresso. Many people mistakenly write the word "expresso". The original word espresso comes from the Italian verb "esprimere" which can be translated by "to press out". As you may or may not know, espresso is simply another coffee brewing method. An espresso is obtained by forcing hot water through densely packed coffee. Before moving on to espresso coffee drinks, here are a few definitions:

Espresso allongé: what you get when you brew the same coffee a second time, resulting in a weaker espresso from the added hot water.

Double shot espresso: instead of brewing about two tablespoons of coffee, brew twice as much. The espresso will take a little longer to brew, but you will have more body and it will be stronger.

Espresso can show off many personnalities. For instance, topping an espresso with hot frothy milk and either cocoa powder or ground cinnamon will make you a nice cappucino. Obtain other espresso coffee drinks by adding one shot of hot water to two shots of espresso: you've just prepared a doppio. Or for a much weaker espresso drink, dilute a single shot espresso into a cup of hot water: thats an americano. For fancier coffee beverages, choose between a macchiato or a latte: the first one is an espresso topped with a small cloud of foamed milk. The second is a shot of espresso that you pour into a cup of steamed milk, with a ratio of 1/3 espresso for 2/3 steamed milk.

Last but not least, end a nice dinner with cozy alcoholic coffee beverages. Here are the two most common of the endless possibilities your fantasy can create. Prepare a cup by frosting the rim using lemon juice and granulated sugar. Pour coffee into the cup and add 1oz. Grand Marnier, 1oz. brandy and 1oz. Tia Maria. Top with whipped cream, and you have a Brazilian coffee. Irish coffee requires less ingredients: a cup of hot coffee, 1 oz. of Irish whisky, and one tablespoon of sugar. Mix together and top with whipped cream. Enjoy these espresso coffee drinks all year round!
