Italian coffee vocabulary

  • Americano ah|mehr|ee|KAH|noh Americano is a type of coffee drink prepared by diluting an espresso with hot water, giving it a similar strength to, but different flavor from, traditionally brewed coffee.
  • caffè kahf|FEH (Espresso or Short Black)
  • cappuccino kahp|poo|CHEE|noh Variations of the drink involve the use of cream instead of milk, and flavoring with cinnamon or chocolate powder.[2][3] It is typically smaller in volume than a caffè latte, with a thicker layer of microfoam.[
  • corretto kohr|REHT|toh Most Italian bartenders prepare a caffè corretto simply adding a few drops of the desired liquor into an espresso shot; however in some cases the liquor is served in a shot alongside the coffee allowing the customer to pour the quantity they desire.
  • doppio DOHP|pyoh Doppio espresso is a double shot, extracted using a double coffee filter in the portafilter.[1] This results in 60 ml of drink, double the amount of a single shot espresso. More commonly called a standard double, it is a standard in judging the espresso quality in barista competitions. Doppio is Italian multiplier, meaning "double".
  • freddo FREHD|doh Freddo is a type of coffee beverage served 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 (hot) and then cooling, generally by simply pouring over ice or into ice cold milk.
  • granita grah|NEE|tah Granita is a semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water and various flavorings. Originally from Sicily, it is available throughout Italy in varying forms.
  • latte LAHT|teh Latte is a type of coffee made with espresso and hot steamed milk, milkier than a cappuccino.
  • lungo LOON|goh Lungo (Italian for "long") is a coffee beverage made by using an espresso machine to make an Italian-style coffee – short black (single or double dose or shot) with much more water (generally twice as much), resulting in a larger coffee, a lungo.
  • macchiato mah|KYAH|toh Caffè macchiato, sometimes called espresso macchiato, is an espresso coffee drink with a small amount of milk, usually foamed. In Italian, macchiato means "stained" or "spotted" so the literal translation of caffè macchiato is "stained” or “marked coffee.”
  • ristretto ree|STEHT|toh Ristretto is traditionally a short shot of espresso coffee made with the normal amount of ground coffee but extracted with about half the amount of water in the same amount of time by using a finer grind.
  • piccolo Latte pic | orlo Traditionally, a Piccolo Latte is a ristretto shot (15 – 20 ml) topped with warm, silky milk served in a 100 ml glass demitasse.
