  • What is a larger piccolo?

    Hi,
    My favourite coffee is a piccolo, but i find it too short. one large sip and its gone. What would be an equivalent larger drink in terms of strength and flavour?
    Thanks

    That will depend on the recipe of the piccolo. An extra shot on a cap or latte might work.

        I was going to write that response as well but it didn't feel right in welcoming a first time contributor. I have ordered 2 piccolos in the past but 1 was for dipping my side order of croissant.

            Try asking if they have any 3/4 latte glasses (160mL) EDIT: what Trentski said). Otherwise settle for a standard latte but only half or 2/3 filled with ..or take smaller sips

              3/4 cap is a pretty standard order in Sydney. Something along those lines should work.

                I believe to be a magic it must be a double ristretto. I just ask for a three quarter latte. In better cafe's they know exactly what you want, in 'other' Cafes they may ask whether you mean 3/4 strength or amount.

                  When ordering a flat white in a cafe (rather than take away) I now ask for a standard cup size with a double shot espresso. As long as the cafe uses the smaller size coffee cups then that turns out pretty much as a double piccolo.

                      Normally works for me when i order it. I now reiterate 3/4 full when i order it. One cafe i ordered it filled cup. When questioned, they thought 3/4 strength!!!!.

                            What is a larger piccolo? That would be a flute.

                              Ah yes, someone had to go there. Was tempted myself before thinking better of it. :-P
