With so many caffeinated beverages on the market right now, it can be difficult to know the difference.
Even though the term "coffee" can stand for any beverage that has been prepared with coffee beans, the term is usually used in association with black coffee.
The differences don’t end there.
The coffee will vary depending on the type of preparation method you choose. You can make a coffee in an espresso machine, drip machine, Moka pot, French Press, or V60, to name a few.
But in all of those cases, the brewed coffee has a more intense flavor when served black but can be served with a dash of milk or cream.
When preparing coffee using a manual filter method, you can taste the flavor of the beans, so it can be fun to experiment with various single origins.
Latte, on the other hand, can only be prepared in an espresso machine and topped up with steamed milk, to classify as a latte.
And when distinguishing a latte from a cappuccino or a flat white, the latte has less foam and is served in a larger glass than the other two milky beverages.
