The Right Coffee For You?

The Right Coffee For You

Coffee; It’s one of the most popular drinks in the world with around 2.25 billion cups of it being consumed every day! But with so many variations of it available, it can be hard to decide which is the right one for you. So we’ve decided to do a breakdown of all the different coffee’s we have available at Triple Two, to help you choose.

 

Espresso

The espresso is the base to all our coffee’s at Triple Two. It’s made by pushing boiling water through finely ground coffee for around 23 seconds to create a small strong drink with a smooth ‘crema’ on top. It’s perfect for you if you’re in a rush or if you just enjoy the taste of coffee

Ristretto

A Ristretto is a restricted version of an espresso, so instead of the water running for 23 seconds, it is run for 18 seconds making the drink a lot stronger and more flavoursome. This is the drink for you if you’re a true coffee lover

Flat white

Flat whites are a favourite of ours at Tiple Two. Made by pouring ‘Microfoam’ (Steamed milk with a smooth texture and small bubbles) over a double ristretto ( a restricted double espresso) it creates a small strong coffee, perfect for when you need a great tasting pick me up.

Latte

The name latte is a shortened version of the Italian name Cafelatte which means milk coffee. This drink is by far the most popular coffee we sell. It’s made by pouring hot textured milk over espresso. It’s perfect for you if you want something that’s not too strong but still want the caffeine fix.

Cappucino 

A cappuccino is a medium strength drink made by pouring frothed milk over espresso. Because the milk is more frothy than a latte it brings out the taste of the coffee more. It can be served with chocolate or cinnamon sprinkles on top. A Cappuccino is a good choice if you want a slightly bigger drink but still enjoy the taste of coffee.

Americano

An Americano is one of our simpler drinks, made by pouring Espresso over boiling water with a choice of milk served on the side. It has a similar strength yet different taste to a filter coffee. It’s a good choice for you if you’re looking for something simple or if you’re watching your calorie intake.

Macchiato

A macchiato is made by pouring a very small amount of frothed milk over a single or double espresso.  ‘Macchiato’ means ‘stained’ or ‘spotted’. The milk in this drink is used to moderate the taste of the espresso and add a very small amount of sweetness to it. This is a great choice for you if you find an espresso just slightly too strong.

Con Panna

Similar to a Macchiato, a Con Pana is a single or double espresso but instead of being served with a dollop of frothed milk on top, it’s served with a small amount of whipped cream to help it go down very easily. Great if you’re in a rush or you just fancy something a little sweeter.

Picollo

A Picollo is like the smaller cousin of the flat white, It’s a very short intense drink made by pouring microfoam over a single ristretto. Great for coffee lovers who need something quick and easy to drink.

Mocha Picollo

A Mocha Picollo is essentially just a chocolate version of a piccolo. It’s made the same way except with chocolate sauce thrown into the mix. Perfect for coffee lovers with a sweet tooth.

 

All of our coffees can be tailored to suit you by adding extra shots, syrup flavourings or milk alternatives to them and we are constantly updating our single origin coffee so there’s always something new to try!
