There are many varieties of coffee, including intense flavours or mild versions of this popular drink. There is a multitude of coffee shops in the United Kingdom and all around the world and coffee has established itself as one of the most popular drinks around.
This is a strong Italian drink served in small cups as either a single shot or a double shot known as a “doppio”. This is a tiny bitter drink that is much like a cup of black coffee. However, the caffeine rush is immense with this drink; just the thing to set you up for a hard day at work. Espresso is also the base for many other coffee drinks such as latte and mocha. Espresso is also the name of a coffee machine that essentially mixes hot water with finely ground coffee beans.
The base for this drink is a double shot of espresso. What makes it different from that espresso is the addition of steamed, hot milk. So essentially this seems to be a much milder form of coffee on the face of it. Interestingly, the amount of caffeine in a double espresso and a cappuccino is the same. However, you do not get the instant coffee buzz with a cappuccino.
