Something which I have noticed about Italian coffee is that there are some which are pretty much the same but with a different styled milk or an added ingredient - So don’t get too confused when first reading our image (below) carry on scrolling and we will tell you what makes them special is - Oh Italy!
So, lets go into a little more detail on these types of coffee and what makes them a little different from each other, as I am sure you are curious to know why some are so similar.
Unlike a few of the other coffees listed, don’t panic, this is your your basic strong espresso coffee. Just like you thought!
Caffè Americano -
This styled coffee is usually served in a large mug. It is like the American styled coffee however it stronger than an espresso coffee.
Caffè Corretto -
This styled coffee is for our liquor lovers. It is usually served with sambuca or brandy.
Caffè Doppio -
Don’t panic, nothing new yet! This coffee is just your average double-espresso.
Caffè Freddo -
This coffee is a coffee which is usually iced. - Nice in the summer.
Caffè Hag -

Caffè Latte -

Caffè Macchiato -
This type of coffee is a small version of a capuccino. Its made from espresso with a smidge of milk.
Caffè Marocchino -
This coffee is a coffee which is made espresso, however!:- it is made with a splash of milk and a spoonful of coco powder (cacao)
