Need up to 30 seconds to load.
All right, so I'm having the first espresso of the day
and I'm here at Vecerka in Brno with our friend Tomi,
who is a skilled barista and also co-owner of the place
we'll explain prepare and
show you all the espresso drinks on the menu,
so check it out!
We'll break down all espresso drinks
into two categories.
Black coffee and milk coffee.
In black coffee we will talk about Single Espresso,
Double Espresso, Americano, Lungo and Filter Coffee.
In milk off we will talk about Macchiato,
Cortado or Piccolo, Flat White, Cappuccino and Caffé Latte.
The names vary a lot around the world
and recipes are not set in a stone but this overview
should be a good starting point for you.
All right so today we'll be talking about the coffee.
Most of the coffees that are made on this machine
that is espresso machine and we'll start perhaps with the basic,
but the most important one and that's espresso.
So Tomi are you ready? Let's make Espresso!
I'm ready let's do it!
Single Espresso, Single Shot or just an Espresso
is served in a small cup and as you can see
there are actually two espresso shots
being produced at a time,
each from one spout.
The volume is usually around 20 - 30 milliliters
or grams because we prefer to weight coffee.
In our case it's 21 grams.
It's a very intense concentrated beverage
with a rich taste and smooth structure.
Before you drink it it's good to stir it
so all the layer mix before you taste it.
If you want to drink a little more coffee
but with the same intensity
just order a Double Espresso or Espresso Doppio
It's the same recipe the only difference is
that barista uses bigger cup
usually the one for Cappuccino to capture
Espresso shots from both spouts.
The benefit is that the price is usually better than
if you order two Single Espressos.
Americano is basically a diluted Espressso
for those who prefer less intense coffee.
You can expect it to be served in a Cappuccino cup.
The barista first add around 100 to 120ml of water
and then pour an Espresso shot.
Coffee remains the flavor characteristics of Espresso,
but the intensity is milder.
Lungo is a longer Espresso
which you can produce by adjusting
the grinder and running a longer shot
it's usually 30 to 40 grams
or as Tomi does in Vecerka, by adding extra hot water
next to a regular Espresso
that the customer dilute to preferred taste
The last black coffee alternative is
Filter Coffee or Batch Brew.
It doesn't really fit this topic since it doesn't come from
an espresso machine but it's a fine option
for somebody who wants to drink a big cup
of black coffee.
The flavor is usually more refined,
less intense and also develops
as the coffee cools down.
Okay so now we talked about most
of the espresso drinks that are actually black coffee
which you combine only with hot water
or you drink it straight away
as it comes from the machine,
but I think in most of the coffee shops
and including Vecerka actually most others
goes for milk coffees.
Is it correct?
Yeah, it's right!
Cappuccino is arguably the most popular
coffee drink in the world.
It consists of a single shot of Espresso and foamed milk
The ratio between these two varies from café to café
and depends on the cups of their choice.
Usually cups are around 150 to 200ml
what creates a nice balance between coffee and milk.
Latte art shows the skills of the barista.
The precision of their steaming technique
and also can make your day a little bit better.
If you want to taste more coffee
your option is Espresso Macchiato
It's served in a small espresso cup
where you mix a single shot
of Espresso with just a little bit of foamed milk.
The ratio is usually between 1:1 and 1:2.
Cortado sometimes also called Piccolo
is a small milk Espresso drink
often served in a glass cup.
It mixes a single shot of Espresso
with a foamed milk in 100 to 120ml of cup.
A very popular Espresso milk drink
coming from Australia and New Zealand
is called Flat White.
It mixes a double shot of Espresso with a foamed milk
in a cup for Cappuccino or even smaller.
Flat White gives you a bigger kick from Double Espresso
and also more coffee flavor.
If you want to drink more milk and less coffee
your option is Café Latte.
It's served in a relatively big cups
around 300ml and it mixes a single shot of Espresso
and foamed milk.
Okay, so now we went through all
the espresso-based drinks
you can order in the coffee shop,
so let's summarize them for you once more.
Espresso is an intense short coffee
serving a small espresso cup.
In specialty coffee shops you can expect
between 20 to 25 grams per espresso shot.
Double Espresso is basically two espressos
served in one bigger cup.
You should know that some coffee shops
serve only Double Espresso.
Americano is Espresso diluted with hot water
served in a bigger cup.
Lungo is a longer and less intense Espresso,
often served with hot water on the side
so you can dilute it to your preferred taste.
Filter coffee is a black coffee alternative
that is not based on Espresso
rather you brew it by hand or with the batch brewer.
Espresso Macchiato is the smallest milk espresso
drink served in an espresso cup.
The coffee to milk ratio is around 1:2.
Cortado is a Single Espresso with
foamed milk often served in a glass cup.
The coffee to milk ratio is around 1:4.
Flat White is a Double Espresso with foamed milk.
The coffee to milk ratio is similar to Cortado, around 1:4,
but you get more caffeine and a bigger drink.
Cappuccino is a Single Espresso with foamed milk
The coffee to milk ratio is around 1:6 or 1:7.
Café Latte is a Single Espresso with foamed milk
served in a big cup.
The coffee to milk ratio is around 1:14.
Now that you know the basics do you wonder what's
the most popular coffee drinking at Večerka?
Based on all the orders this year 32%
went to black coffee
and 68% went to milk coffee.
the most popular black coffee was actually not
Espresso, but a Batch Brew with 16%.
It was followed by Espresso with a little over 7%
and Americano and Doppio got equally around 4%.
When it comes to milk coffees,
the clear winner is Cappuccino
with over 37% which is actually more than
all black coffees combined.
Followed by Flat White with 16%
and Café Latte with 11%.
Both Cortado and Macchiato got between 1 and 2%.
Now we know there are more espresso-based drinks
that we didn't mention,
but we have already dedicated videos
for drinks like Espresso Tonic or Freddo Espresso,
so check them out
and we'll see you in the next video very soon!
Thank you! Bye, bye!
