National Coffee Day,*Breve – This a word that I mixed up with “venti” yesterday (silly me). A “breve” is an espresso drink that uses half and half in place of milk.

*Body – When someone is talking about the “body” of a coffee, they are referring the thickness of the brew. It is measured by the amount of oil or sediment present. A coffee with a heavy body would have a more complex flavor.

*Caffee Americano – This refers to a shot of espresso that is poured over six ounces of hot water. Perparing it in this way produces a milder cup of coffee.

And because I’m into the copy cat recipe thing lately, click here to find a list of Starbucks copy cat recipes including Frappuccinos, Gingerbread Lattes, Almond Biscotti, and Peppermint Mochas.
