Keep reading to learn about 6 different types of coffee you need to try.
Lattes are one of the most popular coffee drinks in the world.
A basic latte has steamed milk, a shot of espresso, and a touch of foam. However, you can add different syrups and flavorings to make it even more delicious. Some must-try lattes include vanilla, hazelnut, pumpkin spice, and mocha.
And pro tip: if you’re not a hot coffee lover, order an iced latte instead!
An Americano coffee is a shot of espresso diluted with hot water. And while this may sound a bit like drip coffee, it tastes very different.
It’s also some of the strongest coffee at Starbucks and has about 225 mg of caffeine per Grande cup. So if you’re looking for a boost of energy in the morning, this is your drink!
A cappuccino is a classic Italian coffee drink. It has a shot of espresso, steamed milk, and lots of frothy milk. You can also get it with cinnamon or cocoa powder sprinkled on top.
And pro tip: have your cappuccino with some coffee cake! It’s a pairing as perfect as wine and cheese.
If you’re interested in trying a type of iced coffee, this one’s for you.
Cold brew is made by steeping finely ground coffee in water for twelve hours. After that, the grounds get filtered out, leaving smooth-tasting coffee served over ice. You can then add milk, sugar, or whatever else you like.
The word macchiato means “stained” in Italian. A traditional macchiato has a shot of espresso and is “stained” with a little bit of steamed milk.
But if you’ve ever been to Starbucks, you’ve probably heard of a caramel macchiato. This drink contains espresso, milk, sugar, vanilla syrup, caramel sauce, and whipped cream. So while it’s not a real macchiato, it is pretty tasty.
This drink isn’t for your average Monday morning.
An Irish coffee contains black coffee (or a double shot of espresso), whipped cream, sugar, and whiskey. Yes, whiskey! It’s the perfect drink for a chilly winter evening or maybe a wild Sunday morning.
But if you’re not an alcohol drinker, a virgin Irish coffee is pretty good too.
