Discover the World of Coffee
A Flavourful Journey Through Unique and Exquisite Coffee Drinks at the North Coast Cafe in Lynton.
Coffee is one of the most popular beverages around the world, with many different types to choose from. Whether you prefer a strong espresso or a creamy latte, there is a coffee type that will suit your taste.
In this article, we will explore 10 different coffee types on offer at the North Coast Café and their unique characteristics.
Espresso: Espresso is a strong and concentrated coffee made by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans. It is the foundation for all espresso-based drinks and is known for its syrupy body, full flavour, and smooth crema on top.
Double Espresso: A double espresso, or ‘doppio’ is simply two shots of espresso served in one cup. It is ideal for those who need an extra boost of caffeine to start their day. North Coast Café offers a delicious double espresso that is sure to please any coffee lover.
Flat White: We can thank our antipodean friends in Australia and New Zealand for this drink, a flat white is made by combining a double shot of espresso with steamed milk and a thin layer of microfoam. It is a smooth and creamy coffee with a rich flavour.
Latte: A cafe latte is made by combining a double shot of espresso with steamed milk and a layer of frothed milk on top. It is a mild and creamy coffee with a slightly sweet taste.
Cappuccino: A cappuccino is made by combining a double shot of espresso with equal parts steamed milk and frothed milk. It is a creamy and textured coffee with a slightly sweet taste. North Coast Café offers a delicious frothy cappuccino dusted with Italian chocolate, that is perfect for any coffee lover.
Americano: An Americano is made by adding hot water to a shot of espresso. It is a light and smooth coffee with a slightly bitter taste. It is traditionally served without milk, but milk or plant-based alternatives can be added to suit.
Macchiato: A macchiato is made by adding a small amount of frothed milk to a shot of espresso. It is a strong and flavorful coffee with a slightly sweet taste.
Mocha: A mocha is made by combining a shot of espresso with Italian Hot Chocolate, steamed milk, and frothed milk. It is a sweet and creamy coffee with a rich chocolate flavour.
Cortado: A cortado is smaller than a Flat White, and larger than a Macchiato. It is made by combining a shot of espresso with a small amount of steamed milk. It is a strong and flavorful coffee with a slightly sweet taste.
Latte Macchiato: A latte macchiato is a visually appealing coffee drink where a shot of espresso is poured into a glass of steamed milk, creating a distinct layering effect.
In conclusion, there are many different types of coffee to choose from, each with its unique flavour and characteristics.
Whether you prefer a strong espresso or a creamy latte, there is a coffee type that will suit your taste. If you’re in Lynton, be sure to visit North Coast Café, a delightful coffee shop on Queen Street in the heart of Lynton’s Old Town.
