But First, Coffee
A Quick Guide To All Espresso Drinks
Espresso-style coffees are more popular than ever around the world. However, with such a large variety in the types of coffee available, you may occasionally feel bewildered at the various names, styles and coffee types on the menu board.
Espresso beverages can be categorised into two categories; “black” when served on their own with varying amounts of hot water, or “white” when served with varying amounts of milk. The names and the recipe of the respective espresso beverages vary in cafés around the world, but this overview would serve as a helpful guide of the beverages available at PAZZION Café to get you started so you can order them with confidence!
Single/ Double Espresso
“Espresso” refers to an extraction method of brewing coffee. The major difference between espresso and other coffee brewing methods is the application of “pressure”. To extract espresso, hot water is forced through a bed of compressed coffee grounds at high pressure via an espresso machine, resulting in a balanced coffee with a good mouthfeel. Two espresso shots can be produced at the same time via two spouts of the espresso machine. A “shot” of espresso ($4) refers to a single serving of espresso from one spout. It is intensely concentrated, rich and smooth, served in an 80ml espresso cup. Double espresso ($5) or “Doppio” simply refers to two servings of espresso served in a cup - perfect for enjoying more coffee of the same concentration and intensity.
