Do you love drinking coffee? If this is your first time living in a country where spring is among their seasons and you are interested in finding the perfect coffee beverage that will blend for this particular weather, below are the top 3 delicious coffee drinks that you can try.
1. Espresso Cortado
Espresso Cortado is a type of coffee drink readily available in any café shop. It’s a bit cooler and bigger in size than the caffe latte you order. The espresso cortado is considered a transitional beverage itself, like the spring season. This means that it’s just a perfect balance of coffee with a combination of light textured skimmed milk and it is not too sweet. This coffee drink is served in a glass without handle at milder temperature. Coffee fanatics who are used to this type of coffee would recommend it as a perfect drink to greet the morning.
This type of coffee is a blend of hot water and espresso, quite similar to black coffee, but with a distinct flavor. For coffee lovers it’s called the proper “American coffee” blend. Why? During the world war, American soldiers who wanted to have their regular morning coffee drink would mix hot water and espresso just to achieve the same taste they are used to. This is why this coffee drink is named the “Americano”. For the optimum experience when drinking an Americano, I suggest you choose the strength based on your personal preference..
3. Latte macchiato
Another popular type of coffee drink that coffee lovers enjoy drinking during the spring months is the latte macchiato. It’s popular in Italy and often consumed by people who don’t want a heavier coffee like espresso. A latte macchiato concoction is a little serving of hot milk and a shot of espresso. In Italy, the locals drink cappuccino to start their day and finish off the afternoon with a drink of latte macchiato. Depending on one’s taste preference, you can add more to increase its strength.
Coffee is one of the drinks that we get to enjoy at many variants. People all over the globe have different preferences when it comes to drinking coffee and it’s not only based on the type of season, but on other reasons such as it being part of their daily habit. Aside from that, drinking coffee has benefits like boosting one’s energy, reducing risk of heart disease, and increasing mental alertness. Of course, drinking coffee in moderation is still the recommended to get the most out of your favorite coffee drink.
