THE Italian METHOD
ü Cappuccino: equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and foamed milk
ü Caffè latte: espresso with more steamed milk and less foam
ü Latte macchiato: steamed milk “marked” with a splash of espresso
ü Caffè macchiato: For the softer side of coffee, enjoy this espresso “marked” with a splash of frothy milk. Unlike the breakfast drinks, this lightly milky caffè can be enjoyed as frequently as caffè normale.
ü Caffè americano: After trying drip coffee in the United States, Italians decided to offer tourists a taste of home. Their interpretation: espresso diluted with plenty of hot water.
ü Caffè lungo: This “long coffee” comprises espresso with a splash of hot water but is stronger than the americano.
