It can be confusing to know the different types of coffee, probably because there are different varieties that are available. For example, espresso is also known as the type of coffee that would be used for a latte or a cappuccino. Espresso is a strong type of coffee, and its natural taste is a bit bitter.

This is sometimes ordered by people when they know that they need an effective energy booster. A latte is a type of espresso, but this has been diluted with milk, which is why this is a little bit sweeter than the espresso. There is a small foam of milk that will be placed on top.

A cappuccino will also come with steamed milk but will also have a higher layer of foam, which makes it even sweeter than the latte.

Espresso and lattes are two popular drinks in the coffee world. Espresso is prepared by forcing hot pressurized liquid into its finely ground coffee beans. It is prepared in an espresso machine. The process of making espresso is both involved and interesting.

Espresso machines hold coffee grounds in what is known as a portafilter. When the espresso is purged, a small amount of water runs through, and when the finely ground coffee turns into espresso, it is quite a sight to behold. Espresso is a treat for coffee lovers, especially since it is blended in drinks called lattes.

Pure espresso is different from coffee because it does not contain milk. Since it does not have any other ingredients, it is also more potent than a latte and a typical cup of coffee. Lattes are created with espresso, milk, and flavored syrup. Lattes have their fan base, as coffeehouses and chains everywhere offer different flavored lattes.
