Coffee! @ Monday, August 29, 2011

Mr Maths explains why asians are good at maths, and he doesn't say they were programmed that way O.O. It's all about numbers he says, in asian languages if you know 1-10 you can go up to 99, e.g. twelve is "2 and 10". But English is hard to learn, and you go, where does eleven come from and things like that. A better explaination here.

Coffee! They were on sale today, and there were so many things to choose from, from capacino to mocha and skim decaf vanilla latte. With so many types of coffee how do you choose? After much debate I went with the safe option of Mocha, chocolate + coffee.
                                                               The white area is milk.

Cappuccino - 1/3 espresso + 1/3 hot milk + 1/3 steamed milk foam
less steamed or textured milk than the caffè latte

Espresso - simplest and strongest form of coffee you can get.
Served in small quantities of either one shot ("Single") or two shots ("Double")

Flat White - creamy steamed milk over a single shot (30ml) of espresso
stretched and texturised milk is prepared by entraining air into the milk and folding the top layer into the lower layers

Latte - 2:1 ratio of milk to espresso, with a little foam on top
less foam than a cappuccino

Mocha - 1/3 espresso + 2/3 steamed milk + chocolate (chocolate syrup or instant chocolate powde)

Skinny - "skinny" version of a drink
made/served with skimmed milk
