Let’s learn about different coffee types around the world.

Top 15 Types of coffees Around The World

1. Espresso

Espresso

It is not a blend or a bean is commonly mistaken. It is a type of preparation method. It is made by pressurizing a small amount of nearly boiling water through finely grounded coffee beans. It is generally thicker and stronger than its variants.

2. Bica

Portuguese coffee is known as Bica, especially in Lisbon. According to pop-culture it literally means “Drink This With Sugar” or B( Beba) I (isso) C (com) A (açúcar) in Portuguese. Slow roasting at low temperatures, a blending of Arabica and Robusta beans, and brewing with higher water pressures conspire to make a perfect cup of Bica.

3. Long Black

It was invented by American tourists in Italy. It is loved by inhabitants of New Zealand and Australia. This delicious drink requires only 2 ingredients – espresso and hot water. The espresso is poured after the water is added to the cup, it protects the crema. Crema is a thin, tan brown froth layer that develops after an espresso shot extraction.

4. Macchiato

Macchiato

In Italian, it means “stained” or “marked”. Macchiato is made by splashing a small amount of milk in a slightly subdued espresso. The ratio of milk and espresso is not fixed, that’s why the taste of macchiato is different in different cafes.

In Portugal, a similar coffee is made known as café Pinagado.

5. Ristretto

In Italian, it means “restricted”. It is a short(restricted) shot of espresso, which means limiting the amount if espresso shot in the coffee. Simply put less water and finely grounded beans. The coffee is more concentrated and sweeter. A coffee where quality matters more than quantity!

6. Americano

Americano

It literally means American Coffee. It differs from long black by the sequence of putting water and a single/double shot of espresso. Here, the espresso is poured over or diluted with hot water. A true Americano has crema if the espresso is not broken.

7. Red Eye

Red Eye

It combines one-shot espresso with normal drip coffee. The name “red eye” is inspired by the “red eyes” people get by staying awake overnight in flights.

It has many variants depending on Geography. Alaska calls it “Sludge Cup” whereas Pacific Northwest keeps the name as simple as “Shot in the Dark”.

Turkish coffee without foam is simply unacceptable. Interestingly, Turkish coffee can also be used for fortune-telling.
