Traditional Beverages

Nearly all of our Featured Traditional Beverages contain the same two ingredients: espresso and milk. The names of the drinks are due to the different proportions of milk and espresso that are used to create them.

 

  • Espresso
    Espresso

    “Espresso” refers to the highly specific brewing process that is involved. The concentrated, high-heat process produces the complicated, distinctive taste of espresso: sweet, sour, salty and bitter.

  • Macchiato
    Macchiato

    We serve a traditional Espresso Macchiato, which means that you will get a cup of espresso “marked” with approximately two ounces of milk.

  • Cappuccino
    Cappuccino

    Named for the Capuchin friars, this drink is simply espresso, milk and extra milk foam. We serve it in the Italian tradition: a six ounce cup filled with one third each of espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam.

  • Americano
    Americano

    This drink is named for the World War II tradition of soldiers diluting espresso with hot water. Americano is meant to imitate drip-brewed coffee, but it retains much of the flavor and complexity of the espresso used.

  • Flat White
    Flat White

    With a name originating in Australia and New Zealand, this beverage is served in a five to six ounce cup with espresso, steamed milk, and a very thin layer of foam.
