Coffee is a very popular drink in Italy. You can choose your “Caffè” amongst many different kind of coffees.

Espresso: simply known as Caffè, served in a small cup. Strong in taste with a rich bronze froth on top.

Doppio: it is a double espresso.

Ristretto: stronger than a regular espresso since it is made with less water.

Caffè Lungo or Americano: an Espresso made with more water – opposite a Ristretto. Caffè Lungo is served in a small cup, Caffè Americano in a bigger cup.

Macchiato: an Espresso with a dollop of steamed milk on top.

Corretto: Espresso that is “corrected” with grappa, cognac or sambuca.

Cappuccino: Espresso in a big cup, containing equal parts of coffee, steamed milk and foamed milk. Italians drink it only before 11 AM.

Caffelatte: Espresso made with more milk than a cappuccino but only a small amount of foam. Usually drunk at breakfast.

Latte macchiato: steamed milk that is “marked” with a shot of espresso coffee.
