Six Coffee Types and How to Make Them

What You Can Do

Espresso

18g ground coffee

What You Can Do

Strong, complex and full-bodied, there’s no beating an authentic Italian-style espresso. Best served exceptionally hot, it’s good practice to warm your espresso cup beforehand with a drop of hot water. Pour in 35ml freshly brewed coffee and enjoy the caffeine hit.

Latte

18g ground coffee
250ml steamed milk

What You Can Do

A latte has a higher percentage of steamed milk than a cappuccino: 1 part coffee, 3 parts milk. Add 35ml freshly brewed coffee to a tall glass and top up with steaming hot milk. Finish with a spoonful of foam.

The result is a strong, clean shot simmering with notes of red wine and Brazil nuts.

What You Can Do

Cappuccino

18g ground coffee
150ml milk
Cocoa powder (to serve)

What You Can Do

The recipe for the perfect cappuccino: equal parts coffee and foam, and half the amount of milk. Pour 35ml freshly brewed coffee into your cup, so it’s a little less than halfway. Top up with the steaming hot milk and a 4–6cm layer of froth. Dust with cocoa powder as the professionals do.
