    Re: Whats your favourite style of coffee?

    50 - 50 so far is fairly indicative of what the final result will look like with some of the shares going to flat whites.

    Funny thing to admit being a barista but recently i have been drinking nothing but coffee from an Aeropress.

    I find at work it goes something like this...

    40% Flat whites...
    30% Lattes...
    25% Cappuccino...
    4 % Long black...
    1 % Short drinks...

    With the odd hot chocolate or mocha.

    uggh, I despise mocha! it covers the flavour of the coffee, destroys the crema and takes a super long time to make cos you have to stir the chocolate in. Its even worse when they ask for sugar in it too.

    Re: Whats your favourite style of coffee?

    Given the possible answers shouldnt the question be: What is your favorite style of espresso based coffee? :)

    Re: Whats your favourite style of coffee?

    At home, I love a doppio ristretto latte fairly short on the milk but not a piccolo.....

    Out and about i prefer a short black(only at good cafes)

    CP is definately my favorite hot weather drink now! :D

    I personally like latte and Americano (I think that is what it is called - Long Black with a dash of milk) double shots in both.

    Time for a Decaff WOW CP Iced coffee after dinner. To much caffiene for the day.

    Had about equivelent to 4 doubles for the day 2 DS Lattes and several Spros or Spro/Lats from some spare single shots :o

    Favourite coffee is the one that tastes the best with the beans available and that includes Syphons too :)

    Re: Whats your favourite style of coffee?

    Most of the time im a long black person, if I dont have enough time to make a long black or drink it all then espresso it is

    On the occasion ill make up a piccolo latte, dont have milk based coffee nearly as much as I used to (not at home anyway)

    Missed out the macchiato.

    I just find espresso alot more drinkable with a dash of milk. Even when properly made, its too strong for my tastebuds.

    Re: Whats your favourite style of coffee?

    I had a laugh I think for me it really depends on the quality of the pour.

    Im still relatively new, and not all my shots are what I would consider espresso grade - despite consistently getting heaps of crema and 22s 30ml pours.

    I still dont know whats the magic that happens, when the stars align and you get a beautiful TASTING (often not the best looking shots!!!) espresso.

    My point is: What I drink depends on what pours from the machine. A good shot is sometimes taken straight. A decent shot gets a bit of milk in it (macchiato), and a slightly off shot gets drowned in milk (latte). It also depends on the time of the day. Some mornings, I just feel like having a nice fluid long black. So a double shot into my coffee mug (yes, I dont only use Tulips and Bowls) along with some boiled water from the kettle is my drink of choice.

    Re: Whats your favourite style of coffee?

    Big fan of the double-shot latte, cappuccinos WITHOUT the chocolate powder ;), and short blacks, macchiatos... Can i ask, whats the big huffufful with flat whites? Why do people like them so much? Certainly nothing wrong with them, theyre lovely. But wouldnt you prefer a latte? Or any milk-based espresso drink where the milk is aerated? :D JUST a thought :P

    ..and yaaay 100th post :)

    Re: Whats your favourite style of coffee?

    I am trying to gain weight at the moment, and sometimes if I feel i didnt have enough for breakfast, Id order a TALL (omg omg 16oz) flat white from the cafe at my workplace. Specifying: 1) Full Cream. 2) Only one shot of coffee.

    Why flat white? Because it has the most milk in it. And milk is fattening. So its good for me.

    So maybe I should change to lattes in order to lose some weight?

    I have a few dozen kilos you can have if you can arrange the transplant.

    I think a lot of its to do with old style milk frothing. It has scarred a generation of coffee drinks, Im sure. People hate it (and rightfully so) and consequently think any froth will be the same so give me the milk drink with the least froth possible.

    The other end of the spectrum are the ones who do like it big and bubbly and ask for cappuccinos all the time and always request "extra froth" cause they cant get enough.

    I personally love lattes and macs. A doppio ristretto if its something really special and fresh.

    I guess Ill be the odd one and say I really enjoy a nicely made Mocha.
    I do them at home using the BeanBay Double Dutch Cocoa made to my mixture - I use a little to give it a "choc" edge but the coffee still comes through.

    I tend to enjoy most coffee drinks flavoured or not but my staple is a cap.

    Re: Whats your favourite style of coffee?

    Im surprised that theres only around 30% that drink coffee black at this stage, I wouldve thought more snobs would drink their coffee black than with milk. *Although theres probably a couple ristretto drinkers in the "none of the above" 10%.

    Since no one has responded Ill take up the torch.

    An Americano is an alternate name for a long black, said to be named after Americans who couldnt tolerate espresso.

    What youre describing sounds more like a Long Machiatto to me.
