At Coffee Wagera, you don’t have to be embarrassed if you don’t know the difference between a Latte and a Cappuccino, or a Mocha and a Macchiato. We have a poster near the front that shows the basic coffees, and our team is happy to explain further.
At Coffee Wagera, we do six basic coffees:
Espresso. All coffees start with an espresso shot, which is made by forcing boiling water, under pressure, through ground coffee. A single espresso shot is 30ml. A good espresso shot has a golden crema on top.
Americano. This is just a shot of espresso with hot water.
Latte. This is an espresso with steamed milk, usually with a shallow pool of foam floating on top.
Mocha. This is Latte with chocolate flavoring and a cloud of whipped cream on top.
Cappuccino. This is an espresso with a thick layer of foamy steamed milk.
Macchiato. This is an espresso with some milk foam on top. A good macchiato has three layers: two layers of espresso (the dark body with crema on top) and a layer of milk foam.
We are not planning to add frappes, affogato or other fancy coffees for now. If you want to know more about our coffees, or would like to try your hand at coffee making, please talk to us 🙂
PS. We use Nestle water and DayFresh milk for our coffees.
