Coffee and Espresson Drinks
Aeropress (12 oz.) The AeroPress is a device for brewing coffee. Coffee is steeped for 10 to 50 seconds (depending on grind and preferred strength) and then forced through a filter by pressing the plunger through the tube. The filters used are either the AeroPress paper filters or disc shaped thin metal filters. The result is an espresso strength concentration of coffee The gentle air pressure of the AEROPRESS extracts extra flavor from the coffee. Ordinary drip brewers leave a lot of flavor in their soggy grounds. The drip method cannot make a robust single cup because the small amount of water doesn't heat the bed enough for rich extraction. It is also slow.
Cafe Mocha A cafe mocha is a chocolate-flavoured variant of a caffe latte. The name is derived from the city of Mocha, Yemen, which was one of the centers of early coffee trade. It is essentially a latte with chocolate sauce. It is sometimes made by steaming milk, cocoa and sugar at the same time.
Cappuccino A cappuccino (Italian plural: cappuccini) is an espresso-based coffee drink that originated in Italy, and is traditionally prepared with steamed milk foam (microfoam). The milk, foam and espresso are generally in equal amounts. The greater the ratio of foam to milk results in a "dry cappuccino", while a higher milk to foam ratio results in a "wet cappuccino. As an aside, the stuff you get at Kwik Trip is not a cappuccino, but hey, it still pleases the soul.
Chemex Drip The Chemex is an hourglass shaped pot that holds a filter that holds the coffee grounds while the barista manually pours hot water over them. The filters are much more densely woven than traditional coffee filters. They help to regulate the flow of coffee while removing much of the body and coffee oils. The filter slows down the flow of water passed through it, resulting in a better developed "cleaner" flavor. Some people liken it to how James Bond order a weak martini.
Cortado (8 oz.) A cortado is a beverage consisting of espresso mixed with a roughly equal amount of warm milk to reduce the acidity. The milk in a cortado is steamed, but not frothy and "texturized" as in many Italian coffee drinks. The word cortado is the past participle of the Spanish verb cortar (to cut), in the sense of "dilute", and can refer variously to either coffee or espresso drinks throughout Spain, Portugal and Cuba.
Espresso Espresso is a coffee-making method of Italian origin, in which a small amount of nearly boiling water is forced under pressure through finely-ground coffee beans. Espresso coffee can be made with a wide variety of coffee beans and roasts, but generally made with darker roasts in the US. Espresso is generally thicker than coffee brewed by other methods, has a higher concentration of suspended and dissolved solids, and has crema on top (a foam with a creamy consistency). As a result of the pressurized brewing process, the flavors and chemicals in a typical cup of espresso are very concentrated.
Flat White A flat white is a coffee drink consisting of espresso with microfoam (steamed milk with small, fine bubbles and a glossy or velvety consistency). It is comparable to a latte, but smaller in volume and with less microfoam, therefore having a higher proportion of coffee to milk, and milk that is more velvety in consistency u2013 allowing the espresso to dominate the flavour, while being supported by the milk.
French Press French Presses use a metal filter with a plunger that allows natural oils and fine particles from the coffee beans to pass through into your cup. This is what gives French Press coffee it's rich and hearty body compared to brewing methods that use a paper filter such as a Chemex, Hario or Aeropress.
Pour Over Pour overs are essentially a very manually made cup of coffee as opposed to an automatic brewer. By controlling the precision of the coffee amount and the water by hand, a richer, fuller coffee can be made. Pouring water evenly over the grounds to create a mushroom effect on the grounds ensures that the coffee granules are evenly saturated. This requires a kettle, cone filter and a very precise scale.
Red Eye Essentially fresh brewed coffee with an espresso shot. There are some slang terms for the number of types of espresso shots. One Shot=Red Eye, Two Shots=Black Eye, Three Shots=Blind Eye and Four Shots=Crazy Eye. If mad with decaffeinated shots it is referred to as a Canadian. If made with one shot of regular espresso and one shot of decaf espresso it is sometimes referred to as a French Canadian or a Lazy Eye.

BFF Kombucha Kombucha starts out as a sugary tea, which is then fermented with the help of a scoby. ?SCOBY? is actually an acronym for ?symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast.? The scoby bacteria and yeast eat most of the sugar in the tea, transforming the tea into a refreshingly fizzy, slightly sour fermented (but mostly non-alcoholic) beverage that is relatively low in calories and sugar.
