Coffee Plus

I've been seriously considering buying myself an espresso machine so I can make my own coffee drinks. I keep thinking that it would probably save me money in the end, and I wouldn't have to feel bad about paying the $3.50+ every day for my favorite mochas!

Coffee Drinks Illustrated

Side-by-side diagrams of a few common espresso drinks.

I‘m new to the world of fancy coffee drinks. With the vast number of ordering options and new words with accented characters to pronounce the coffee shop ordering experience can be intimidating. I’ve created a few small illustrations to help myself and others wrap their head around some of the small differences.

Espresso is prepared by forcing pressurized steam through finely ground dark-roast coffee beans. Think of it is strong, concentrated coffee. You can add extra ’shots’ of espresso to make your drink stronger.
