A Lazy Coffee
What is the best way to ask for a Large Long Black Coffee but not a strong one.
I always have to say, no I don't want 3 or 4 shots just the normal 1 or 2 is fine.
I just want a large cup (amount of water) without the risk of palpatations :)
If there is no other term for this can I suggest a Lazy Long Black or a "Lazy Coffee"
Given the variation from cafe to cafe and region to region, your safest bet is to just tell them what you want "A long black based on a single(Double) shot, but with extra water (or in a mug if the cafe differentiates between cups and mugs)". In the interests of multicultural harmony, I would probably avoid using the first of your suggested nicknames for the drink

Welcome coffeem8. You could always ask for a double shot in a mug and a seperate jug of hot water?
I drink double espresso which you’d think are straight forward but I’ve had all sorts over the years. If it’s a cafe I’m not sure of, I’ll just ask for a short black and I generally get something drinkable, albeit single shot.
As Barry said, be specific if you have a specific drink in mind.
