  • Espresso or Latte or ...... at local cafe

    Hi all,

    Just wonder what CSers normally order when drink out at any favorite local Cafe??? Straight espresso or Latte or Flat white or .....

    I know many of us take more than one kind but wanna know what cannot miss out almost every time.

    Cheers,
    C

    At my local favourites, all coffee is good. So i guess it depends on my mood. Espresso, Piccolo, Flat White, or cold press if hot and available.

    At one Ive not been before, I check beans, machines & watch for a while before ordering. Then sometimes I order tea

      I usually order a flat white with skim milk (Im not on a weight loss mission, just dont like too much milky taste), a long black with milk or a piccolo latte if at Di Bella.

      Husband orders an espresso or short macchiato.

            Double shot Latte at a few selected cafes or go without quite often if I am out for a meal Locally I have never tempted fate and asked for an Espresso but there is maybe 2 in the area out of 60+ that might be worth a try.

                Fantastic suggestion.

                Seems like home-roasted coffees beat most cafe out there....
                As I newbie in roasting I am often not confident with my own roast and always end up buy some drink from cafe and some bean back home :P

                  *snort* I wouldnt assume that I can happily say that the cafes I frequent beat my home roasts and brews hands down. Granted, Ill only go to a cafe that I KNOW is better than what I can produce, which also means I stand to learn something while there.

                  when time is limited Ill usually have a latte and a pourover at my local. If Ive got some time to sit and relax, I let the barista decide. Often, they sourced the coffee, roasted it and have been pulling shots of it all day. My belief is that they would know the best way to show that coffee off, and given that Ill drink any espresso based bevvie Im happy to drink what is offered!

                    At the best places I just ask for something nice.

                    If the place is good I will generally ask for a double ristretto 3/4 latte.

                    If the place is poor Ill ask for a tea or a water.

                      with a good cafe ill order either a short / long mach, long black or latte

                      I find the long black is always the sign that the barista knows what theyre doing, as many people seem to stuff it up

                      any new place that I go to which has a good rep I always start with a long black or long mach

                        Living in inner Melbourne, Im spoiled for choice with some top notch cafes who buy great beans, or roast their own. One of my faves is even using a special blend from Andy now, so no complaints there!

                        Ill frequently buy a 3/4 latte when visiting somewhere quality. My skills and kit are nowhere near up to what these guys can do (yet... )

                        And its a great way to see what can be possible and extend my skills to strive for a certain quality...if I hadnt tasted some crackers from these places I would be satisfied with some very average coffee today.

                          My local, Pablo&rustys is supplied by AIR (australian independent roasters) who roast a decent bean. there, i go through phases of flatties, double rissys, piccolos and long blacks.

                              Ah you got it in one phrostyboi - Keffa Han.

                              Was glad enough to see the East Brunswick bags there when I first started going in, and then was delighted to see the gold precious there...
