Here I am, after playing badminton this afternoon... tired but fun. Now, drinking my Nescafe instant coffee,
with a nice weather outside and novel in my desk.
What a perfect weekend!

Talking about coffee, I love coffee so much.
I love chocolate and tea as well, but still heart coffee more.
Even though I know that drinking too much coffee is not good for your body cos it contains caffeine. But, seems like people don't care about that anymore because the fact is Starbucks are everywhere around the world and it is so popular. But anyway, no... I'm not addicted to coffee. hehehe.. I just LOVE it!

I like to drink coffee in the morning before going to school.
If I don't have any time, I will buy it on my way to school. There is a coffee shop near my house, inside Monash Clayton campus. hahaha... I usually drink mocha, but lately I like Latte with 1 sugar. I feel that Mocha is too sweet now. I don't like Cappuccino because it contains too many foam in the top and I don't like foam at all.

In Australia, I love Starbucks and Gloria Jeans the most.
Usually, I don't order hot coffee in Starbucks because I feel that their hot coffee doesn't taste really nice in my tongue. hoho.. I love Starbucks' Mocha Java Chip. Ah, their Signature Ice Chocolate and Hot Chocolate are the best. hahahaha... OK, that's chocolate btw... not coffee. I prefer Gloria Jeans for the hot coffee. 

Last semester, I bought coffee often when I was in campus (Caulfield). My friend, Andrea also like coffee so much. We used to go to Mama Duke, a cafe inside Caulfield campus. Their coffee is good as well, I still buy their coffee sometimes. We always order the same things. Regular mocha for me and regular latte with 1 sugar for him. Oooohhh... I miss that moment! I miss when my best-campus-friends are still with me.

I don't really know much about types of coffee before, but after I love coffee so much I know about it a little bit. Just the basic one anyway, such as mocha, latte, cappuccino, black coffee. Now, I'm curious about the types of coffee. Because I read so many novels and there are many types of coffee mentioned there. Lavazza, Americano, Mocha, Long Black, Double Shot, etc. So, here are some explanations about types of coffee :

latte                               mocha
  • Americano: A single shot of espresso with about 7 ounces of hot water added to the mix. The name for this coffee drink stemmed from an insult to 'uncouth' Americans who weren't up to drink full espressos.
  • Black coffee: A drip brew, percolated or French press style coffee served straight, with no milk.
  • Caffe Latte: A single shot of espresso in steamed milk. The ratio of milk to coffee should be about 3:1, but in Italia latte means milk, so be careful ordering one when in Rome.
  • Macchiato: A shot of espresso with steamed milk added. The ratio of coffee to milk is approximately 4:1.
  • Cappuccino: Usually equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and frothed milk, often with cinnamon or flaked chocolate sprinkled on top. Some coffee shops will add more milk than that so that the customer will get a bigger drink out of the deal, but that makes the coffee itself far weaker.
  • Dry Cappuccino: A regular cappuccino, only with a smaller amount of foam, and no steamed milk at all.
  • Frappe: Originally a cold espresso, it has more recently been prepared putting 1-2 teaspoons of instant coffee with sugar, water and ice. The brew is placed in a long glass with ice, and milk if you like, turning it into a big coffee milkshake.
  • Lavazza: Basically Lavazza is espresso. Espresso has many brands or types. And Lavazza Espresso is one of the most popular types. I read in a book, it said that only a melancholic man who drinks Lavazza. Lol. 
  • Mocha: This popular drink is basically a Cappuccino or Latte with chocolate syrup added to the mix. Sweeter, not as intense in coffee flavor, and a good ‘gateway’ coffee for those who don’t usually do the caffeine thing.
  • White coffee: A black coffee with milk added.

I really want to work in coffee shop and making my own coffee. *sighhh
