Hot drinks based on espresso: proportions

Most of the coffee drinks in Starbucks are prepared using a coffee machine based on ground dark roasted coffee beans Espresso Roast. Also in any coffee shop there is the opportunity to order your favorite coffee drink, which is prepared using a seasonal variety of coffee and even without caffeine - based on Decaf Espresso Roast beans.

Espresso con panna

This type of coffee is also called Viennese coffee. It contains one or two shots of espresso and whipped cream. Volume - 29 ml / 52 ml.

Each of the following drinks is prepared in one of three volumes: toll (355 ml), grande (473 ml) and vent (592 ml of pure happiness for a true coffee connoisseur). You can also try any of these drinks in the cold version.

A drink that is prepared on the basis of 2/3/4 shots of espresso (depending on volume) with the addition of hot water.

A well-known drink, the recipe of which is almost the same in all coffee houses. 1 shot of espresso for toll volume and 2 for grande and vent, aerated milk and foam in a ratio of 50/50.

Also a fairly common coffee drink. It differs from cappuccino only in the ratio of foam to milk: in latte, 90 percent of milk accounts for 10 percent of the foam.

Latte Macchiato

It is made from the same ingredients as regular latte, with one exception: first, milk is frothed and shots of espresso are already poured into it. Due to this, espresso is evenly distributed and the taste becomes softer.

Starbucks is one of the most delicious and high-calorie hot drinks due to the presence of chocolate and whipped cream. The rest of the recipe, as in latte, is foam and milk in a ratio of 90/10 and 1/2/2 shots of espresso.

Caramel macchiato

A very popular drink among Starbucks guests, besides it is very sweet and tasty. It is prepared in the same way as Latte Macchiato, but with the addition of vanilla syrup and a caramel pattern.

The recipe for this drink is similar to the latte recipe. It is prepared only in the volume of toll to maintain the desired ratio of milk to coffee. It includes 2 shots of espresso (instead of one in latte) and aerated milk. At Starbucks, this Flat White is traditionally served with summer art. Volume - 354 ml.

Traditional coffee drinks: recipes

In addition to espresso-based drinks, three types of black coffee are prepared in Starbucks coffee shops: Pur Over, Freshly brewed coffee and French Press.

Preparing this type of coffee drink is not easy: boiling water is poured over a paper filter with ground coffee for 5-10 minutes. Sometimes it is simply called "filter coffee."

Contraindications and recommendations

Also, any espresso-based drink can be made from decaffeinated grains - decaf.

How to make Starbucks coffee at home

If you want to make one of the hot drinks based on espresso, then you need an espresso machine. If you don’t have an espresso machine, then instead of espresso you can make black coffee by brewing it in a Turk or using a French press. The most important thing is to observe the proportion of black coffee and milk, based on the recipe for the drinks indicated above. You can just warm up your coffee and get hot coffee with milk, but to make coffee like in Starbucks you need to beat it with a cappuccino machine or use a coffee machine.

What is the most delicious coffee in Starbucks?

Among the hot drinks with milk, the sweetest names are the most popular: Caramel Macchiato and Mokka. Fans of hot black coffee usually choose Americano. Freshly brewed coffee is also very popular, unlike Pur Overa, although it is a milder analogue of freshly brewed coffee and, accordingly, tastes better.

Among the cold drinks based on espresso, the most delicious drink is again considered Caramel Macchiato. And people who want to freshen up, but do not like sweet coffee or coffee with milk, usually ask to make cold Americano.

Among the coffee-based frappuccino it is difficult to choose the most delicious. But still, the most popular is Caramel Frappuccino. Chocolate Java Frappuccino is undeservedly one of the most unpopular, although it has a great taste due to its constituent chocolate and chocolate chips.

How to Cook Frappuccino

If you want to make Frappuccino at home, you will need black coffee or espresso, milk, sugar, ice and syrup to taste. In addition, you can add cookies or chocolate.

  2. Pour ice into a blender and finely crush it.
  3. Add syrup and, if desired, chocolate or cookies.
  4. Pour into a glass and serve, garnished with whipped cream and syrup, cinnamon or ground nuts.
