Ok serious topic:
What is your drink of choice in a Cafe?
espresso for me!
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 ...?
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...)
I had an Italian girlfriend once, many yrs ago. ^ :?:
She educated me in many things :?: amongst which was the idea that a cappuccino after lunch is ismply not the done thing! :8:
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 :?:
Americano man meself.
'51'...Cinquante-et-Un of course!
Expresso otherwise....but hey...I have never done a café stop on a bike before - does it taste different? :?:
I dunno. Cappuwhat? mocchaeh? espresswho? people don't half have big opinions of themselves these days- ten years ago it was a milky coffee or a pot of tea and that's your lot. Youse lot don't even know you're born! eeh when i was a lad blah blah blah.........
tea usually because you get more of it and it's cheaper.
coffee on the thursday traing run, so that i can get home.
Skinny latte for me
