  • The heart and soul of all our espresso beverages. Each shot we pull has three distinct layers that create a deep, rich flavor.

    The foundation of all our lattes, mochas, macchiatos and more, and the heart of our beverages, is our perfectly pulled espresso. Enjoy it as a single shot or a double which is known as a Doppio. Our baristas pull each intensely rich shot within a precise five-second window and ensure each has three distinct layers: the crema, the body, and the heart-or they toss it out and start again. It's been this way at Starbucks for over 40 years, because we believe that crafting the perfect espresso is the key to crafting the perfect drink.

  • A celebration of espresso flavor—hot water poured over rich espresso for a cup that is as deep and dark as the coffee bean itself.

    The Americano celebrates the rich flavor of espresso. It's a simple drink, yet must still be made with care. Our baristas immediately pour two espresso shots, the second they are pulled, into your cup and then quickly pour hot water over the top to produce a light layer of crema. The result is a wonderfully rich cup, with the depth and nuances that only freshly ground espresso can boast.

  • Bold ristretto shots matched with the perfect amount of steamed milk to create a not too strong, not too creamy flavor.

    A product of simplicity, crafted into artistry, our baristas know that balance is key to the perfect Ristretto Bianco. An extra ristretto shot ensures that it’s bolder than a latte, yet steamed milk keeps it smoother than a cappuccino. But perfection doesn't end there—the technique for steaming and pouring the milk requires close attention as well. Steamed milk is folded into itself creating a velvety microfoam that gives the Ristretto Bianco its silky texture and signature white dot.

  • Dark, rich espresso lies in wait under a smoothed and stretched layer of thick foam. It's truly the height of our baristas' craft.

    At the height of a barista's craft lies the Cappuccino. Trained to know when each drink has reached a specific weight, our baristas pass the test when the drink you hold in your hand is a perfect balance of light and airy foam and deeply delicious espresso. And of course, just say so if you prefer yours even lighter (ask for it "dry") or a bit more on the heavy side (ask for it "wet").

  • Delicious espresso and steamed milk always blend perfectly with whatever flavors you desire to add.

    What's not to love about a delicious espresso drink that you can help make completely your own? Our dark, rich espresso balanced with steamed milk serves as the perfect base for whatever flavors you choose to add. Go for sweet vanilla, creamy caramel, a seasonal favorite like Pumpkin Spice, or whatever your heart desires—the only thing that matters to us is that it's perfectly made and uniquely you..

 

Starbucks Espresso

Cappuccino

Espresso with steamed milk, topped with a deep layer of foam.

With less milk than a latte, cappuccino offers a stronger espresso flavor and a luxurious texture. To make it properly requires much skill and attentiveness. Arguably the most important part is frothing the foam to velvety perfection as the milk steams – something our baristas take great care to achieve. The milky moustache that clings to your upper lip is proof we’ve made yours right. And may we say, you wear it well.

Did you know

Cappuccino is considered mostly a breakfast beverage in Italy, while espressos are enjoyed any time of day.
