A WORLD OF DRINKS IN YOUR KITCHEN

Espresso

Strong, concentrated and made with a dark roasted bean, a single shot contains 6-8 grams of espresso per 1-1.5 fluid ounces. Bold, rich and powerful as coffee can get.

Origin: Meaning “instant” or “express” in Italian, the term has been used since the 1880s.

Espresso Long

Producing double the traditional espresso volume, it consists of a single espresso with a longer extraction time that exposes an exotic new range of exquisite nuances and flavors.

Origin: Invented by purists looking to maximize the flavor of a single espresso shot.

Coffee

The perfect cup of coffee is an elusive, luscious wonder sought after the world over. It starts with the finest beans sourced from around the planet, roasted to perfection and brewed with hot water. Is there anything more satisfying?

Origin: A 9th century Ethiopian goat herder discovered the properties of coffee beans by accident.

Italian Macchiato

A dollop of delightful, frothy milk resting atop a single or double shot of espresso. The Macchiato is a jolt of intense flavor enveloped in a small cloud of deliciousness. It means, “stained” or “spotted” in Italian.

Origin: The term was invented by Italian baristas looking to differentiate between an espresso and one with a tiny bit of milk in it.

Cappuccino

One-third espresso, one-third heated milk and one-third heavenly milk-foam, this drink is sure to delight.

Origin: Named for the Capuchin friars and their rich brown-and-cream-color habits.

Latte

Two-thirds steamed, frothed milk with two shots of bold espresso. Topped with a small cap of lovely, velvety foam, it’s a creamy coffee lover’s dream. Molto bello! Latte means, “milk” in Italian.

Origin: It is claimed that William Dean Howells first used the term café latte in English in 1867, in his essay "Italian Journeys.”

Steamed Milk

Steamed milk results from exposure to high-pressured steam from an espresso machine until the natural fats within it expand to create microfoam. Deceivingly complex, its silkiness makes it the most comforting nightcap of all.

Origin: Coffee and milk have been part of European culture since the 17th century.

Hot Chocolate

Freshly roasted cocoa beans, steamed milk and sugar. A dollop of fresh whipped cream is optional. Sweet and soothing, it’s the stuff of childhood fantasies. Some European cafés are known to melt entire bars of fine chocolate into their extravagant versions.

Origin: First drank by the ancient Maya, the beverage became popular in Europe after being introduced into the New World.

Café Mocha

One-third espresso, one-sixth cocoa, one-third milk and one-sixth foam topped off with whipped cream and sprinkled with chocolate flakes. Ultra smooth and velvety, it’s as decadent as it is popular.

Origin: An American invention and a variant of a café latte, it is inspired by a beverage from Turin, Italy named a Bicerin.

Tea

Infused with hot water, white teas, green tea, oolong teas and black teas are the four main types brewed today. If there’s anything more calming than a hot cup of freshly brewed tea, we haven’t found it yet.

Origin: It is said that tea was born in 2737 BC, when tea leaves fell into a pot of boiling water belonging to a Chinese Emperor.

Flat White

Microfoam – steamed milk consisting of small bubbles with a glossy consistency – poured over a shot of espresso. Its distinct textured surface – called a meniscus – is the secret to its luscious flavor.

Origin: The first documented appearance of flat white was at Moors Espresso Bar in Sydney, Australia in the 1980s.
