Coffee,Latte,Espresso,Cappuccino

Sorry about yesterdays post disappearing..I had a change of ❤.

On a lighter note, I thought it would be nice to do a coffee post. If you are not  a coffee drinker, then this post will bore you to tears.

Plain Black Coffee

Cappuccino

 

Cafe Latte

Plain Coffee is brewed with your standard coffee pot. You can drink it black, (as is) or add sugar and cream. VERY basic! And only has about 4 calories per 4oz.

Cappuccino is an Italian coffee prepared with espresso, hot milk, and steamed-milk froth. Equal amounts of espresso & hot milk are poured into a cup, then it is topped with foamy milk which could be done with an espresso machine, OR as long as you heat the milk first, you can use a blender or hand help mixer to froth it. Besides the shot of espresso, the most important part in preparing a cappuccino is the texture and temperature of the milk. That will determine how foamy it gets, hence the fabulous flavor and texture.

A Cafe Latte is also an Italian coffee. It’s made solely of espresso and steamed milk. No froth!  Latte means coffee & milk. 

Personally, my favorite are Cappuccinos. I love all the foamy milk which I place shredded chocolate on top of, or cinnamon & cocoa.

Currently, the most popular specialty coffee drink is at Starbucks. It’ s their Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Latte with whip topping.  It is pretty Amazing! ALL 560 calories of it!!  I actually only treat myself to them around the Holdiays. Years ago, my favoite specialty coffee was a Frozen Dunkin Donuts Dunkachino. I would have one every Sunday morning before church..until one day a lady in Sunday school walked over to me and asked me if I knew there was 890 calories in them?  I had no clue..but didn’t stop drinking them, but did stop having a egg & chedder Dunkin Donuts crossant with them every Sunday! I chose to have the coffee as my breakfast. *G*

If you have a favorite coffee drink besides the trusty standard, which is it?
