Hi! I'm Michelle. I've been a partner for a year and a half. And we're here to share some pro tips with you guys and...just some of the things that we have, um, asked of us from the customers here in the store on a regular basis.
What is a ristretto shot?
The difference between a regular shot and a ristretto shot is just that less water is pulled through the espresso, creating a sweeter shot.
What is a latte?
We also get asked "What is a latte?" It's basically espresso shots, steamed milk, with velvety foam on top. And that is my go-to drink.
What's the difference between a latte and a cappuccino?
One of the questions that we get asked a lot is "What's the difference between a latte and a cappuccino?" We start with our espresso shots, steam our milk, and the only difference really is the amount of foam on top. So, a cappuccino has quite a bit more foam than the latte.
What's the difference between coffee and espresso?
I always tell my customers that, really, espresso is coffee. It's just a different preparation. They use high pressure from steam to press the water through the coffee grounds to get the liquid. With coffee, you're just pouring hot water over the grounds and whatever,
using gravity to get that liquid.
