Our volunteers are barista trained and we specialise in delivering great tasting coffee. Here’s a guide to some of the great coffee’s we serve.
Firstly The Espresso (aka “short black”) is the foundation and the most important part to every espresso based drink. Then there is The Double Espresso (Doppio) A double espresso (aka “Doppio”) is just that, two espresso shots in one cup. You might fancy The Short Macchiato, similar to an espresso but with a dollop of steamed milk and foam to mellow the harsh taste of an espresso. You will find that baristas in different countries make short macchiatos differently. As well as the Short Macchiato there is The Long Macchiato which is the same as a short macchiato but with a double shot of espresso.
There are other coffee’s too like The Ristretto which is an espresso shot that is extracted with the same amount of coffee but half the amount of water. The end result is a more concentrated and darker espresso extraction. Then there is The Long Black (Americano), hot water with an espresso shot extracted on top of the hot water. You might even prefer a Café Latte, an espresso based drink with steamed milk and micro-foam added to the coffee, much sweeter compared to an espresso due to the steamed milk. A Cappuccino is always welcomed and is similar to a latte. However the key difference between a latte and cappuccino is that a cappuccino has more foam and chocolate placed on top of the drink. Furthermore a cappuccino is made in a cup rather than a tumbler glass. The there is the Flat White, a coffee you’ll primarily find in Australia and New Zealand, made the same as a cappuccino expect it does not have any foam or chocolate on top. A piccolo latte is a café latte made in an espresso cup. This means it has a very strong but mellowed down espresso taste thanks to the steamed milk and micro foam within it. Finally there is the Mocha, a delicious a mix between a cappuccino and a hot chocolate. It is made by putting mixing chocolate powder with an espresso shot and then adding steamed milk and micro-foam into the beverage. Whatever your choice we just want to serve you a great coffee.
For the Tea drinkers we also serve a range of different specialty Tea’s too ranging from Black Tea to White Tea or even Green Tea or a variety of flavoured Tea’s, we just want our customers to have a great drink at reasonable prices.
