a strong, black coffee made by forcing steam through rich espresso beans. in most ways, it is measured by its crema, the thick, swirly cloud of coffee at its peak. back to the weather analogy: it is undesirable to have a clear, cloudless espresso, contrary to the smiles which sunny, clear days bring to meteorologists' faces.
this one comes with a wee bit of foam on top. it is the illegitimate child of a cappuccino. imagine a young boy aspiring to be like his father.
Espresso Con Panna
with whipped cream on top. here, you can get a bit of sweetness while still retaining the integrity and allure that drinking an espresso can bring you.
espresso poured over a cup of hot water. in the end, it's similar to a cup of coffee, but much, much smoother.
espresso with steamed milk and frothed milk to top it off. mathematically speaking, the ratio is 2: 2: 2 (espresso: milk: foam). if asked for dry, it would be more along the lines of 2: 1: 3. or wet, 2: 3: 1.
just like you might have thought: a cappuccino with mocha flavoring and hershey's chocolate to decorate the top. customary decorations are the zig-zag and the swirl, but other designs do exist.
espresso with steam milk added, usually with a wee bit of foam. precisely, it is one-part coffee, three-parts milk.

We are happy to announce that Pittsburgh Magazine included us as one of their 100 favorite things in their September 2006 issue. Thank you Pittsburgh Magazine! Here's what the kind folks over there had to say. In the meantime, Keith is trying to find the time to decoupage these kind words on pieces of beautiful oak for the dining rooms or dens of your homes. "Yes, we love the hiss of the espresso machine, the scent of freshly ground coffee and the tantalizing sight of desserts, but what makes a truly great coffee shop is personality.
