Ever wondered why an Americano is called an Americano and an Espresso called and Espresso – let us tell you the story in the coffee names….

Americano (or the Long Black): A long smooth double-espresso (creamy thick), topped with hot water. Traditionally served black, but can have added hot or cold milk.

The first Americano coffee it thought to have come from the battlefield of World War II. American GIs in Europe tried to make a coffee similar to the one they were accustomed to by diluting it with hot water. Later on the coffee became popular in the UK.

Capuccino: Little foamed milk rolled into the espresso to mellow the invigorating liquor, finished with or without a subtle dusting of chocolate.

The origin of the word is said to be from the Capuchin Friars (Order of Friars Minor Capuchin). Why? The Capuchin Friars wore brown habits (distinctive attire worn by a member of a religious order) and shaved the top part of their head leaving a surrounding ring of brown hair. Another origin of the word Cappuccino may be from the Italian equivalent for hood ‘Cappuccio’.

Latte: A long refreshing coffee – a single espresso is gentle poured into steamed milk to diffuse into a layer.

Latte became very popular in North America since 1970′s, when the Caffe Latte was first brought on to the American market. Latte, in the US, is usually blended with sweet syrups, but the Italians usually drink Latte in the mornings as part of their breakfast.

Mocha: A delicious combination of espresso, chocolate and foamed milk.

The origin of Mocha has roots in port Mocha located on the shore of Red Sea, which is part of Yemen nowadays. Mocha port was the main exporter of coffee beans to Arabian Peninsula areas. The coffee beans were smaller and rounded and made a rich, sweet and chocolaty tasting dark coffee (that’s where the bond of coffee and chocolate came from). Their demand increased after the Europeans discovered it in the 15th century where it was placed in Cafès (coffeehouses) of European cities like Amsterdam or Paris.
