Traditional Beverages

Nearly all of our Featured Traditional Beverages contain the same two ingredients: espresso and milk. The names of the drinks are due to the different proportions of milk and espresso that are used to create them.

Espresso

“Espresso” refers to the highly specific brewing process that is involved. The concentrated, high-heat process produces the complicated, distinctive taste of espresso: sweet, sour, salty and bitter.

Macchiato

We serve a traditional Espresso Macchiato, which means that you will get a cup of espresso “marked” with approximately two ounces of milk.

Cappuccino

Named for the Capuchin friars, this drink is simply espresso, milk and extra milk foam. We serve it in the Italian tradition: a six ounce cup filled with one third each of espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam.

Americano

This drink is named for the World War II tradition of soldiers diluting espresso with hot water. Americano is meant to imitate drip-brewed coffee, but it retains much of the flavor and complexity of the espresso used.

Flat White

With a name originating in Australia and New Zealand, this beverage is served in a five to six ounce cup with espresso, steamed milk, and a very thin layer of foam.
