Most of all, I do have a simple coffee machine to experiment with. Which made me even more hungry for such knowledge.
I signed up for a session with my neighborhood cafe - Grandeur Gallery Cafe some time earlier this year, and the session was conducted by Barista Guild Asia. Learned to identify arabica vs robusta coffee beans, interesting facts were shared. Had a great shot of espresso, it's tiny all black coffee! Tasted slight soury but rich in aroma, it was interesting.
It was great, the session was not as boring as I thought. We had some hands on experiences in brewing and preparing cappuccino with the skillful milk frothier. I learned how to differentiate latte, cappuccino and flat white coffee. Indeed, cappuccino is the richest with milk among all. In such, I prefer flat white if I were to have my coffee goes with milk.
I do appreciate black coffee a.k.a americano (espresso + hot water) more these days, all black without sugar and milk. As much, pure black coffee serves only 2calories :) The most, I would always like my afogato (espresso + vanilla ice cream) when I brew at home.
