Home » Types of Coffee Drinks

Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in most cultures and countries around the world. The dark, bitter liquid that has enchanted so many people comes from the coffee bean, and can be prepared in many different ways. The whole process is quite easy to break down: the coffee fruit in picked from the tree through a process of selecting the riper, plumper ones. They are then roasted into what we know as coffee beans. The beans are then ground and packaged or sold whole and ready to grind. The last process is brewing the coffee, and this is where different methods set different types of coffee apart. Coffee can be slow brewed through hot or cold water, and usually done in a drip or filter, french press, percolator and other slow brewing methods. Coffee can also be brewed quickly through pressurized espresso machines. Quickly pressurized brews are referred to as “espressos” while slow brewing method are simply referred to as coffee.

Caffé Americano

Sometimes simply called Americano, this style of coffee is made by mixing a shot of espresso with hot water. Most americanos combine a single shot of espresso with 8 to 16 fluid ounce of water, however you can make the americano stronger by adding more espresso shots or less water. The texture and strength of the coffee are similar to slow brewed coffee, however the taste is different.


Cappuccino coffee is one of the most popular types because of it’s taste and heat retaining qualities. Now, that sounds a bit too complex for coffee but the concept is simple enough. Cappuccinos are made with espresso coffee, milk and steamed milk foam. The foam floats on top of the coffee and exceeds the height of the cup. The foam creates an insulating effect, keeping the coffee heated for longer periods than other types of coffee.


Along with cappuccinos, lattes are another iconic style of coffee drink. Latte is achieved by combining espresso with steamed milk, making it much thicker than cappuccinos. Lattes have very little foam on top and can also be combined with more espresso shots and other types of milk in certain variations.

Coffee + Espresso

 Slow brewed coffee is sometimes combined with espressos to increase taste, texture, and caffeine levels per serving. Although it is not very traditional, the dirnk is usually referred to as “red eye”, “black eye” or “dead eye” depending on how many espresso shots it has.
