Espresso Machine Guide

So you’ve bought your espresso machine, and now you wonder what you can make besides the regular espresso shot and cappuccino. You remember seeing that long list on the Starbucks menu and you can’t wait to get creative!

Well, I’ve listed out some suggestions for you, can’t say I’ve tried them all, but some of these are rather fun to make.

Americano – A shot of espresso watered down with about 7 oz of hot water.

Café Breva – Same as cappuccino, but using half-and-half milk instead of whole milk.

Café Latté – A shot of espresso with steamed milk at the ratio of 3:1.

Café Macchiato – A shot of espresso with steamed milk at the ratio of 4:1.

Cappuccino – Equal parts of espresso, steamed milk and frothed milk. To make it look restaurant-served, you can add whipped cream, chocolate flakes or cinnamon sprinkled on top.

Dry Cappuccino – A cappuccino with less foam and no steamed milk.

Espresso Con Panna – Espresso with whipped cream on top.

Frappé – A cold espresso with ice and milk, just like a coffee milkshake.

Hammerhead/Shot in the Dark – A mix of drip coffee and one shot of espresso served in a regular size coffee cup.

Mocha/Mochaccino – A cappuccino or café latté with added chocolate syrup.

Ok, I hope you find these enjoyable as a variety to your daily coffee menu. Cheers!
