A recent survey has revealed that more than half (53.51%) of the Indian population drink coffee regularly. But do you know some people also have a habit of collecting different types of coffee? Unfortunately, many of us do not even learn about the many varieties of coffee available or even the different kinds of coffee drinks. For example, two coffee beans are commonly sold in US supermarkets – Arabica and Robusta. Now, what’s the difference between these two? Let’s first learn about these two types of coffee beans.

Most people like Arabica coffee, mainly due to its delicious taste. It is a little sweet and has a complex flavour, just like black coffee. The other fantastic thing is that it does not contain much caffeine. Robusta, on the other hand, is a cheap and strong coffee. Because of its bitter flavour, it is used for espresso or instant coffee mixes. In addition, it has more caffeine than Arabica.

Different types of coffee drinks:

  • Cafe Latte: This popular coffee drink is made with a shot of espresso and hot milk. It is liked a lot in North Europe, Germany and Austria. In Italy, a latte means milk, and a cafe latte means coffee and milk. To make this, you’ll need a cup of hot milk and half a cup of fresh espresso coffee. First, make a foam by whisking the milk well. After that, put coffee in a cup and add this foamed milk. Enjoy it by adding sugar as per your choice.
  • Cafe Americano: This is brewed coffee made with espresso and water. Espresso is diluted by adding water, after which its flavour becomes wholly different and stronger. At the same time, iced Americano espresso is made by mixing cold water instead of hot water. Put espresso coffee in a cup, add sugar and mix. Your Hot Americano is ready to be served. To make Iced Americano, add cold water instead of hot water.
  • Black Coffee: This is the easiest and most widely consumed coffee by fitness freaks. Drinking it also boosts your metabolism and proves to be very effective for people who want to lose weight. You’ll need an instant coffee mix, water, and sugar to make this. Boil the water well first. Put it in a cup and then add coffee, sugar and mix it. Your black coffee is ready.
  • Espresso Macchiato: This is also known as espresso macchiato. It is a coffee drink containing a small amount of milk. Macchiato in Italian means ‘stained’. It has to be made just like espresso coffee. Put espresso in a cup and add foam milk to it. Your Italian espresso macchiato coffee drink is ready to drink.
