    What to ask for??

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Can someone help me here. i make my coffee at home with 1/4 milk, 1 shot espresso & the rest hot water. i dont know what to ask for to get something similar when i have coffee at a cafe. Flat whites are too milky & macchiatos are too strong & not enough milk. i usually end up with a long black which i enjoy but its not really what i want. (i know it sounds like an ordinary white coffee from a drip machine but i dont want it made from a drip machine) Is there something out there with a name that i can ask for?

    I would ask for a long black and a small jug of milk. This is how I like my coffee also when Im watching my dairy intake. Find, frequent and patronize a fantastic local coffee shop and theyll soon get to know you and want to look after a regular..... especially if the regular wears a smile and enjoys great coffee. Welcome to being a snob!

    Sounds like an Americarno to me. Try ordering it, and if you get strange looks explain it just like that, 1 shot espresso, 2/3 hot water and top with hot milk. I get them from time to time at work and as long as a customer can get across what they want its easy enough to fulfill :)

    For the same reason plus lack of time.

    Yeah Americano sounds about right to me...though when i make it for someone ill often offer some pouring cream instead of milk so you get a mouth feel a bit heavier than milk.

    OR just ask for a 3/4 long black with milk on the side(MOS)?

    An American term, Americano is a drink similar to American brewed coffee. It is made with a single or double shot of espresso combined with 6 to 8 ounces of hot water out of an espresso machine, pretty much the same as our long black.
    As Luke said, just ask for a 3/4 long black with milk.
