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!

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.

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 ...?

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 :?:

A big, very big cup of Milchkaffee (Milky Coffee) which is essentially a double espresso with at least the same volume again of milk and then some froth. ... and none of these poncey mediterranean names!
