Our guide to espresso-based drinks

From Ristretto to Latte, this is our complete guide to the six most popular espresso-based drinks. How do you make yours?

A few years ago we sat down with Jonatan Scheeper, co-founder of former Amsterdam institution Headfirst, to come up with a beautiful and simple guide to making gorgeous espresso-based drinks. Somehow, over time, this lovely guide disappeared under a pile of reviews and blog posts but it’s still as accurate and relevant as ever.

Of course, as is the case with all coffee creations, this guide is more of a suggestion rather than a golden rule and we’d love to hear from you how you make these six drinks. What are your ratios? What is your preferred espresso base? Single origin or blend? Just add your comment and get the discussion going.
