Caffeine in different coffee drinks

caffeine in different coffee drinks

Coffee drinks are made by brewing hot water and occasionally cold water with ground coffee beans. The brewing is either done slowly by drip, filter, french press, cafetiere or espresso machine. When put under pressure of an espresso machine, the coffee is termed “espresso” while slow-brewed coffees are generally called “coffee“. While all coffee drinks are based on either coffee or espresso, some drinks have milk or cream added, some use steamed milk, plant based milk, or foamed milk.

The caffeine content in coffee beans may be reduced via one of several decaffeination processes to produce decaffeinated coffee, also known as “decaf” coffee, which may be served as regular, espresso or instant coffee.


To make an Espresso, shoot boiling water under high pressure through finely ground coffee beans and then pour into a tiny mug. Sounds simple right? Well, it’s surprisingly difficult to master. Espressos are the purest coffee experience you can get, and while they’re not for everyone, it can be truly singular drinking experience when you find a good brew.



It is a very popular breakfast drink. It is prepared by diluting an Espresso with hot water, giving it a similar strength to, nut different flavor from, traditionally brewed coffee. The strength of Americano varies with the number of shots of Espresso and the amount water added.


Filter coffee:

Ground coffee beans are left to steep in either hot or cold water, then filtered out, leaving the liquid behind. The result is less harsh and bitter than Espresso, but less watery than an Americano, and can be drunk black or with milk.

Long black:

Hot water is poured into a cup, and the two shots of Espresso are poured into the water. If you do the inverse of this, it will result in an Americano. Long blacks can be quite strong, and have more crema (a creamy foam that tops espresso shots) than an Americano.

Macchiato (also known as a Piccolo latte):

A Macchiato is a shot of Espresso that is then topped off with foamed milk dashed directly into the cup. Although it may sound similar to a Cappuccino, it’s usually stronger as there’s no steamed milk added and it’s also smaller, usually served in an espresso-sized cup.



There are few variations on the Vienna, but one of the most common is made with two ingredients: Espresso and whipped cream. The whipped cream takes the place of milk and sugar to provide a creamy texture.



Affogatos are more for a dessert coffee than a drink you would find at a cafe, but they can add a fun twist to your menu. They are made by pouring a shot of Espresso over a scoop of vanilla ice cream to create a sweet after-meal treat.


Flat white:

A Flat white originates from New Zealand and Australia. For a Flat white, the steamed milk from the bottom of the jug (which is usually not so frothy, but rather creamy) is poured over a shot of Espresso. It is usually tried by those who are desperately trying to stay awake.

Possibly the most popular type of coffee in the world, a Cappuccino consists of three layers (kind of like a cake). The first is shot of Espresso, then a shot of steamed milk, and finally the barista adds a layer of frothed, foamy milk. This final layer can also be topped with chocolate shavings or powder. Traditionally, Italians consumed this type of coffee at breakfast.



A ‘Mocha‘ is just a latte with the added chocolate powder or syrup, sometimes topped with whipped cream. If anything, this is a good entry level coffee-living in the worlds between the childlike hot chocolate and the adult Cafe latte.


Cafe latte:

Cafe lattes are considered to be an introductory coffee drink since the acidity and the bitterness of coffee is cut by the amount of milk in the beverage. Flavoring syrups are often added to the latte for those who enjoy sweeter drinks.

It’s made by whipping up instant coffee, sugar and hot water into creamy froth and adding it to either hot or cold milk. It takes its name from Korean word honeycomb candy, which it resembles. Occasionally, it is topped with coffee powder, cocoa, crumbled biscuits, or honey.

Iced coffee:

Iced coffee is a type of coffee beverage severed chilled, brewed variously with the fundamental division being cold brew- brewing the coffee cold, yielding a different flavour, and not requiring cooling- or brewing normally and then cooling, generally by simply pouring over ice or into ice cold milk.
