What are the Best Coffee Beans for Espresso?
Dark roast coffee is generally preferred for espresso because the bold flavor of the roast helps to balance out the acidity of the espresso and the sweetness of the milk in a cappuccino or latte. However, some people prefer a medium roast for their espresso, as it can have a more balanced and nuanced flavor.
What are the Best Milks for Espresso?
Some people prefer cow’s milk for its creamy texture and easy foamability, while others prefer plant-based alternatives such as almond milk or soy milk for their health benefits or because they are lactose intolerant.
