The most important coffee specialties


Water at a temperature between 92 and 94 °C is pressed for 18 to 22 seconds through the very fine ground coffee powder. Now 40 to 50 ml espresso drip into the pre warmed espresso cups. You can tell a perfect espresso by its speckled foam – the famous Crema

Iced Espresso

Pour a dash of espresso and a dash of milk over ice. In Italy they call this caffè con ghiaccia e latte


The brewing method is the same as for espresso, but with much more water. Due to the Crema resulting from this, it is called Schümli. Typical roastings for this sort of preparation are rather light roast levels.


The real cappuccino consists of espresso, hot milk and frothed milk. One third of each is filled in cups of 150 to 200 ml and decorated with some cocoa powder on top of the frothed milk.

Caffè Corretto

Espresso, “corrected” with a dash of Grappa, brandy or liqueur.

Caffè Mocca

Yummy! Serve approximately one third espresso, one third boiled milk and one third cocoa in a long glass. The drink can also be prepared with 1 to 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup and more milk.

Latte Macchiato

A cup of espresso is poured into a glass filled with hot milk and then topped with frothed milk. Its name “macchiato” is inspired by its speckled look .

Caffè Latte

Fill a big glass to two thirds with hot milk and pour a double espresso on top.

Café au lait

Since the French don’t always take things too seriously, it is sometimes prepared with espresso and sometimes with a very strong filter coffee. A large amount of hot milk is poured either over the espresso or the filter coffee. The café au lait is served in a typical bol, a conical bowl without lid.
