Top 10 Most Popular Types of Coffee

We drink coffee because it makes us alert, tastes and smells good, and it is a part of our morning routine. Everybody has a favourite type – it may be an espresso, latte, cappuccino, or else. You can choose from a large variety of coffee beverages. You can even order online from different trusted brands on market. An example of such brand is Chocolate Fish Coffee Roaster.

The type of coffee you chose depends on your preference. I will share with you the top 10 most popular types of coffee you can get in every coffee shop.

  1. Espresso

The espresso is also known as the “short black”. It is the foundation of all coffee beverages. It is not for everyone, but it can provide a unique coffee experience if you find a good brew.

  1. Americano

The way you make a café Americano is by adding hot water to a shot of espresso. Some say this way the beverage last longer. If you can’t handle the espresso, this is a good choice for you.

  1. Double espresso

Double espresso or Doppio is two shots of espresso in one cup. It can be quite strong. If you really need a boost in the morning, a cup of double espresso will give it to you.

  1. Macchiato

This is a shot of espresso with foamed milk on the top. It is similar to a cappuccino but stronger. Also, it is served in a small cup (just like the espresso), not a big one.

  1. Latte

A latte is made of steamed milk and a single shot of coffee. It is pretty popular among the coffee drinkers. This coffee is sweeter compared to the espresso. If you want to gradually start your day, this one is the best option. You will get alert, without the additional buzz.

  1. Cappuccino

It is similar to a latte. Cappuccino has three layers – a shot of espresso, a shot of steam milk, and foamy milk. The last one is often topped with chocolate powder.

  1. Irish coffee

Well, what can I say about this one, except that I am a huge fan of it. Irish coffee is brewed with whiskey, sugar, and sometimes a layer of cream. It is not a good idea to drink it in the morning, though. The best time is in the afternoon, around 3 – 4 PM. It will keep you alert and at the same time calm. Absolutely incredible, if you ask me.

  1. Ristretto

This one is a powerhouse. It is basically an espresso shot extracted with the same amount of coffee but less water (half the amount). The result is stronger coffee, that you just drink and “Go, Go, Go!”.

  1. Mocha

Mocha is a mix between a hot chocolate and cappuccino. It is an espresso with chocolate powder, steamed milk, and micro-foam. If you are new to coffee drinking, this probably is a good choice to start your journey into the coffee beverages.

  1. Affogato

It is more a dessert than a drink. Affogato is usually served after dinner during the summer. It is made by adding ice-cream to a shot of espresso. It is a nice way to finish your day.
