    Yp , espresso, with a wee bit of sugar (the only time I really use the stuff in its granular form). I lived in Spain some years ago, and used to enjoy a carjillo, which was espresso with brandy in it....yum!

    Large Cappuccino with a double espresso on the side. Knock back the espresso for the caffeine kick, then savour the cappuccino.

    My wife's family is Italian and that's just how we have it. mmmm
    You should try an Italian sprit called Strager (spelling is wrong) it's a yellow sprit known as witches brew.

    Mine's a well brewed, but not overly strong mug of tea with just a little milk, no sugar.

    No No No!! It has to be a Latte Macchiatto, assuming that's how you spell it. An Italian cafe is best for the real thing, where they separate out the constituent parts correctly. Nescafe do a reasonable soluble imitation, but not as good as the genuine article.

    Right, next question ...?
     
  7. Large strong black coffee. Or maybe latte.

    Latte's good enough for me! More thirst quenching than coffee somehow.
    Preferably a large one!

    I never "got" cappucino. Black coffee with froth on top???

    Yes, but why??

    (Esp as I have sugar, so after stirring, the coffee's no longer black...)

    It's the strength - Cappuccino is stronger with one part espresso to one part milk whereas latte is one part espresso to two parts milk. Latte makes a full mug, cappuccino doesn't, so the froth is just to hide the fact that you're not getting a full mug :?:
