Hi,

I think this may be the correct forum for this post (if not let me know).

Anyway, I remember seeing a table on some web site (I thought that I Bookmarked it but I didn't) that gave directions (ratios or recipes) for various espresso based drinks (Americano, longo, lattes, etc. etc.).

Does anyone have a clue where I could find it or one like it again? Thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Dave

These are the traditional Italian recipes:
  • 7 g coffee + 25 ml water = Caffè espresso
  • 7 g coffee + 25 ml water + 25-50 ml hot water (added after extraction) = Caffè americano
  • 7 g coffee + 15 ml water = Espresso ristretto
  • 7 g coffee + 50 ml water = Espresso lungo:
  • 14 g coffee + 50 ml water = Caffè doppio
  • 14 g coffee + 30 ml water = Ristretto doppio
  • Caffè espresso (25 ml) + 125 ml frothed milk = Cappuccino
  • Caffè espresso (25 ml) + 120 ml hot milk + 80 ml frothed milk = Latte macchiato
  • Caffè espresso (25 ml) + 5-15 ml frothed milk = Caffè (espresso) macchiato
  • Doppio (50 ml) + 200 ml hot milk (not necessarily topped with frothed milk) = Caffè latte

Here are some things Italians do with espresso:
  • Caffè corretto: espresso "rectified" with a shot of Grappa or brandy
  • Granita di caffè: stirred, frozen espresso
  • Caffè freddo: cold, sweetened espresso stretched with water
  • Caffè macchiato freddo: espresso with just a draft of cold milk
  • Maroccino: a tablespoon of molten chocolate is dispersed on the inside of a glass, then espresso is added and topped with two to three tablespoons of frothed milk and sprinkled with cocoa
  • Bicerin: equal parts of espresso and hot chocolate topped with frothed milk (a variation from Turin)

Spanish espresso based coffee drinks are:
  • Romano: espresso with a slice of lemon
  • Café con hielo: espresso "on the rocks"

Some other strange recipes:
  • Coffee on the Beach: Mix a cold, sweetened doppio with cocoa. Add vanilla ice cream and pineapple juice, and stir until creamy.
  • Mint Mix: Blend some cream, espresso, peppermint ice cream and sugar.
  • Advocaat Dream: Top espresso with advocaat (or eggnog) and whipping cream.

Add this to the list, I had it for the first time Saturday.

Espresso con panna, which means "espresso with cream" in Italian, is a single or double shot of espresso topped with whipped cream. In the US it may also be called café Vienne and in the UK café Viennois.

I don't know of the link here on CG, but I would imagine that you could fine some great recipes on www.allrecipes.com

My wife and I go to that site all the time for recipes.  It has a huge selection with review system that is excellent.

I knew that I would get the right stuff here! Thank you all for those replies!

And I found this on another forum also.

"http://www.home-barista.com/tips/brewing-ratios-for-espresso-beverages-t2402.html"

I lurk a lot and sometimes I forget to Bookmark the sites.


I sure am having fun with the new Espresso machine.


Cheers

I guess I should mention that 7 g for a single and 14 g for a double shot are a rather unusual dose around here. Most people updose significantly like 18 g for a doppio. It all depends on your personal preference.
