In the first of two episodes, covering all common coffee shop drinks and lingo, Kenneth sits down with Morgan Eckroth of Onyx Coffee Lab. She is the 2022 World Barista Runner-Up and the reigning US Barista Champion. Morgan is the most popular coffee expert across all of the big social media platforms. She is the go-to source for all things coffee, so is the ideal person to provide an overview of modern coffee lingo and drinks!
In this episode, they cover drip coffee, pour-overs, and batch brews. Before moving on to espresso, red and black eyes, americano, long black, macchiato, cortado, cappuccino, and a few others. During the episode, they also debunk a few myths and answer some interesting questions, for example, whether espresso is as strong as drip coffee.
‘Outside of the US, you´ll hear drip coffee referred to as filtered coffee. ´
‘Very roughly speaking, on average, a double shot of espresso ... will have an approximate amount of caffeine to an 8oz cup.’
‘A macchiato is just a way to soften and kind of take off the edge of espresso,’
