Ristretto, Macchiato, Cappuccino, Mocha, Americano… Most coffee lovers have heard of these gourmet drinks at one time or another, but how many have attempted to prepare these coffee house espresso-based beverages at home?

Creating these coffee house drinks in your own kitchen is simple with our Guide to Espresso-Based Beverages. We recommend having a Capresso espresso machine and a Capresso automatic milk frother on hand when preparing these recipes.

Guide to Espresso-Based Beverages

Drink Name Preparation
Espresso 1-1.5 ounce shot of coffee brewed at high pressure for 20-25 seconds. Espresso is the basis for many gourmet coffee specialty drinks.
Ristretto 0.5-0.7 ounce shot of coffee brewed at high pressure for less than 20 seconds. The ristretto has a very intense flavor that is bolder with more body than a traditional espresso.
Lungo 2-4 ounce shot of coffee brewed at high pressure for 45-60 seconds.  The lungo is more bitter than espresso as more water is extracting the coffee’s flavor.
Macchiato A shot of espresso topped with a spoonful of frothed milk served in a demitasse cup.
Espresso con Panna A shot of espresso topped with whipped cream in a demitasse cup.
Espresso Affogato A scoop of gelato or ice cream “drowned” in a shot of espresso.
