Specialty Coffee Recipes and Instructions

 

Be creative when preparing and serving specialty coffee.
Add toppings such as whipped cream, cinnamon, chocolate, nutmeg, caramel etc. 
Create exciting drinks by adding flavoured syrups.

 

Espresso

   Variations

Espresso Doppio:   Also known as a "Double Espresso".  Double the volume of  Espresso and double to volume of water (2 oz.)
Espresso Ristretto:  Also known as a "Short Espresso".  Prepare espresso as you normally would, however shorten the extraction time so there is less water dispensed.
Espresso Lungo:  Also known as a "Long Espresso".   A long espresso is a single shot espresso topped up with 1 oz of water.  For a Double Lungo use a double shot of espresso topped with 2 oz of water.
Americano:  Prepare espresso as you normally would, then top up  with 5 oz of hot water . 

Made from  dark roasted coffee beans.  A single Espresso usually  measures approximately  1 oz.  The espresso should be crowned with a gold coloured froth called "crema".

 

Cappuccino

    Variations

Basic Cappuccino:  This variation is most common in North America.  Consists of 1/3 Espresso, 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 foamed milk.  Foam milk as per proper foaming technique.  Use spoon to hold foam in foaming g pitcher and pour steamed milk in your serving glass.  Then spoon  milk foam on top.  Then brew the espresso directly into the serving glass.  This creates a layered effect .  If your serving glass is too large to fit underneath your brewing head, brew espresso into a separate vessel , then pour into the serving glass.  Many garnish with Cinnamon,  powdered or shaved chocolate.

A Classic Cappuccino is made with  1-1/2 oz of  Espresso topped with 2-3 oz of foamed milk.  The "Basic Cappuccino" is more common in North America.

 

Café Latte

    Variations


The Café Latte is of Italian origin.  Do not mistake it for Café Au Lait which is the French version using strong drip brewed coffee and steamed milk.

Basic Café Latte:  Steam milk and fill a latte mug. (Preferably glass).  Prepare the Espresso as you normally would and dispense into the steamed milk.  If your serving cup does not fit under your brewing head, brew espresso into  a separate vessel and then pour into the steamed milk.  Many garnish with a Cinnamon stick or Chocolate.  Adding flavour syrups is also popular.
Also known as
Café Con Leche

 

Espresso Macchiato

    Variations


Prepare espresso as you normally would.  Foam milk using proper technique.  Spoon a dollop or two of foam onto the top of the espresso.

Latte Macchiato:  Pour  1/3 cold milk into a tall glass.  Pour 1/3 hot milk  into glass and top with hot foamed milk.  Slowly pour fresh brewed espresso through the foam.  If you cannot brew directly into the glass, brew espresso into a separate vessel and pour into the glass.
Espresso Con Panna:  Prepare espresso as you normally would.  Top with a dollop or two of whipped cream.  Garnish to taste.

 

Café au Lait

 

Pressure Brewed Coffee

Originated in France.    Milder version of the Café Latte from Italy.
Brew half cup of strong
coffee into an open-mouthed mug and add half cup of steamed milk.  You may top with foamed milk.

Due to brewing under high pressure, only aroma is extracted leaving behind unwanted acids in the grinds.
The gold coloured crema preserves the aroma and holds all the aroma (oil).
