  1. Sorry for the daft question but is a Cortado the same as an espresso macchiato? From what I've ever read on Cortado's is they're an espresso shot with the same amount of steamed milk. Is this correct?
  2. Had to venture to The Quays shopping centre today, so decided to also go check out Cafe Corretto in Gloucester Docks. Outside is lots of seating looking out over the docks and warehouses. Inside the Cafe was very busy and noisy. It took about 5 minutes from arriving to being served. The staff looked quite rushed. Only one Barista was making the coffee, the other staff were either sorting the food or cleaning. One member of staff was taking the orders and money. The menu is varied, with several options for espresso, plus the usual Latte, cappuccino and flat white. I opted for the interesting looking cortado, sold as a double ristretto with steamed milk. The cafe also sells tea, beer, wines, milkshakes and food ranging from sandwiches to amazing looking cakes. My Cortado was £1.90 I think and my Wifes medio Chai latte about £2.20, so pretty reasonable. I'd like to go back to try the flat white and when its not so busy. Certainly reccomened if you are there. Much better than the Costa or Cafe Nero lso on site. There is also another cafe next door to this one called Cafe Italia. It didnt look anywhere near as busy as the Corretto. One thing both me and my wife noticed was the barista occasionly checking the milk temperature with a thermometer after steaming and sampling the espresso from the machine after a few shots. One of two Faema two group machines, with Mazzer grinders. I presumed one was decaf and one normal, but one of the staff filled both grinders from the same bag of beans, so obviously not. I couldnt see any other grinders, but they do claim to serve decaf if requested.

We had no choice, inside was jammed full.

  3. Hey all, I've just been scouring the net for different types of coffee and found this very informative page.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_coffee_beverages I honestly didn't realise that there were so many variations of how to make a nice coffee and it has inspired me to try new drinks I didn't realise that my current drink of choice is a recognised coffee drink either! I really like an American cafe au lait which is described as: "In the US, 'café au lait' is defined as a coffee beverage consisting strong or bold coffee (sometimes espresso) mixed with scalded milk in approximately a 1:1 ratio." I actually scald the milk because I prefer the taste but didn't realise that it was a recognised method. So what's your drink of choice and what would you like to try? i thought I'd share it with everyone so that others could benefit as well
