The Things That You Should Know As Coffee Beginners!

In this coffee guide for beginners, we will share some essential information and provide you with ideas that will help you identify the flavours and tastes you desire in your coffee journey!

Knowing About Coffee Beans

The foundation of a great cup of coffee lies in the beans you choose. Coffee beans primarily come in two varieties: Arabica and Robusta. Arabica beans are known for their delicate and nuanced flavours, often with notes of fruit, berries, or floral hints. On the other hand, Robusta beans are more robust and carry stronger, sometimes bitter, flavours. They are commonly used in espresso blends to provide a rich crema.

Understanding Roast Levels

Coffee beans are roasted to different degrees, which significantly affects the taste and aroma of your brew. There are generally four main roast levels:

  • Light Roast: Lightly Roasted beans preserve their natural flavours and acidity. If you are someone who prefers a milder taste, this roast level will be perfect for you!
  • Medium Roast: This kind of roast offers a more rounded flavour. You can expect a slightly richer taste with hints of chocolate or caramel.
  • Dark Roast: Darkly roasted beans have a bold and smoky taste, sometimes accompanied by slight bitterness.

Grind Size And Its Role In Brewing

The grind size of your coffee beans plays a crucial role in the extraction process and determines the overall flavour of your coffee. Different brewing methods require different grind sizes.

  • Coarse Grind: This grind is ideal for French press brewing. The large particles prevent over-extraction and result in a full-bodied, textured cup of coffee.
  • Medium Grind: Suitable for drip coffee makers and automatic espresso machines, a medium grind allows for a balanced extraction, producing a well-rounded flavour.
  • Fine Grind: Espresso machines and Moka pots work best with fine grinds. The smaller particles lead to a higher extraction rate, giving you a concentrated and intense shot of coffee.
  • Extra Fine Grind: Reserved for Turkish coffee, this ultra-fine grind creates a strong and bold brew with a unique sludgy texture.

Espresso, Latte, Mocha, Americano, And Cappuccino: What Are They?

As you are heading towards a cafe or a coffee shop, these terms will prominently catch your attention! We are here to clear all your doubts regarding these popular coffee drinks. In general, it can be said that espresso, latte, mocha, Americano, and cappuccino are different types of coffee drinks based on their ingredients and preparation methods.


Do you want to have the taste of pure coffee? Then espresso will be the best choice! Yes, espresso is the purest form of coffee, known for its intense and concentrated flavour. It is made by forcing hot water through finely ground coffee beans using an espresso machine. The result is a shot of rich and bold coffee, typically served in small demitasse cups. Due to its potency, many other coffee beverages use espresso as a base.


A latte is a popular espresso-based drink made with espresso, steamed milk, and a small amount of milk foam on top. The key to a well-made latte is achieving the right balance between the espresso and the milk, resulting in a smooth and creamy texture. 


Do you want to enjoy the flavours of coffee and chocolate in one sip? Then Mocha will be the right choice for you. Mocha, also known as a cafe mocha, is a delightful blend of espresso, steamed milk, chocolate syrup, or coffee powder, topped with whipped cream. The addition of chocolate gives this beverage a sweeter and slightly richer flavour profile.


The Americano is a simple yet effective way to enjoy coffee, especially for those who prefer a milder taste. It is created by diluting a shot of espresso with hot water, resulting in a coffee that somewhat resembles drip coffee in strength and flavour.


Cappuccino is an Italian classic and a favourite among coffee enthusiasts worldwide. It consists of equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam. The foam adds a velvety texture and enhances the overall coffee experience. 

Are you now clear about the differences between espresso, latte, mocha, Americano, and cappuccino? Hopefully, the explanation provided has clarified any doubts you may have had about these popular coffee drinks.
