Latte machines

Milky, frothy and often mistaken for a flat white. A latte has a single shot of espresso, topped with steamed milk and a layer of micro-foam (frothy milk with tiny bubbles).

Content Image

Cappuccino machines

A cappuccino has less milk, but more froth, than a latte. It often comes with a sprinkling of chocolate too, which might have something to do with why it’s so popular.

Content Image

Americano machines

A shot of espresso, infused with water. There’s usually no milk or froth with an americano. Think of it like a diluted espresso that you can enjoy for a little bit longer.

Espresso machines

It’s a small shot of espresso. Simple as that. The taste is strong and flavoursome and there's no bells and whistles like other options. The truest coffee experience you can get.

Why we love coffee

Coffee culture

We're crazy about coffee in the UK and we've been enjoying it for centuries now. Although traditionally a nation of tea drinkers, coffee is quickly becoming the nations new favourite beverage.

Loved the world over for waking you up in the morning, there's also an important social aspect of coffee. The 'coffee break' is commonplace in most workplaces and is often accompanied by a sweet treat too.

The Swede's call this Fika, which essentially means 'coffee and cake break.' And with so many coffee machines to choose from, you can make your own amazing brews at home, as well as getting them from your local coffee shop.

See some baking inspiration for your coffee break below.
