With the improvement of people's living standards, coffee is gradually known and loved by the public. I myself like to drink coffee very much, basically one to two cups a day. Wake up in the morning and have a cup of latte, which will bring you a good morning spirit. In the afternoon, you can have a cup of hand punch and enjoy the afternoon tea.
When it comes to what coffee is good, I think the taste is very subjective. You may not like the ones that others admire. The key is to try to find the coffee that suits your taste. I will give you a brief introduction to the classification of coffee and the flavor of espresso machine brand so that you can choose a coffee that suits you.
According to different production methods, coffee is roughly divided into two categories: fancy coffee and single-origin coffee.
1. Fancy coffee
Fancy coffee is a cup of coffee drink based on espresso, adding milk, cream, syrup, etc. Several of our common classic coffees belong to this category, such as latte, cappuccino, and mocha. As shown in the figure below, these are all fancy coffees. The difference is that different materials are added. The proportion of materials has a certain standard, but it is not absolute.
Of course, there are not only these types of fancy coffee. With the rise of some small independent boutique cafes, more types of fancy coffee have been developed, and some very alternative and personalized coffees have even appeared, such as and Sweet orange coffee with fruit-freshly squeezed orange juice and tea soup are added to give a richer taste. Another example is pepper coffee-soak the green pepper in sparkling water, and then add it to the Italian concentrate, the taste is very strange.
However, their coffee base is always espresso extracted with an espresso machine. In order to get a more balanced taste, the coffee beans often use blended beans.
2. Single origin coffee
Single-origin coffee is quite different from the fancy style in the selection of coffee beans and the utensils made. Coffee beans often choose a single variety of beans, and the production tools are more extraction tools such as hand flush pots, siphon pots, and French press pots.
When drinking single-origin coffee, it is often not recommended to add other ingredients, no sugar or milk, but to taste the flavor and aroma of the coffee beans themselves. The aroma of coffee is very rich and layered. Beans from different origins, different processing methods, roasting levels, production methods, etc. will all have an impact on the flavor of coffee machine brand.
If you are new to coffee, it is recommended to start with fancy coffee.
The reason is simple. Compared with a single product, fancy coffee is more like a "coffee-flavored drink", because sugar and milk are added to neutralize the bitterness and acidity of the coffee, and the taste will be more acceptable.
But there are so many types of fancy coffee, how to choose?
I suggest to try the basic and classic models first. If you like a more milky flavor, you can choose a latte. It contains a lot of milk and a smooth milk foam on top. The addition of milk will make the overall taste smooth. Fragrant. If you still feel bitter, you can choose a flavored latte: that is, a latte with syrup, such as the common vanilla latte and hazelnut latte. Of course, there are many types, such as sweet-scented osmanthus latte, rose latte, etc., and different flavors of syrup are added to the latte, and you can choose according to your preference.
If you like coffee with a heavier taste and the full and light taste of milk froth, you can choose cappuccino, which has less milk than latte but has a much thicker milk froth layer. You can also choose Fu Rui Bai (also called Ao Bai), which has less milk froth than kabu, but has a stronger coffee flavor than latte.
If you like sweeter coffee, but also cream and chocolate, then Mocha coffee is tailor-made for you, with a thick layer of whipped cream on top and a certain amount of chocolate sauce added to the coffee.
